Sixty miles southeast of Orlando along the Space Coast is the charming city of Melbourne, FL. Filled to the brim with museums and parks, you’ll find plenty of fun for the whole family.
If you’re travelling with children, a must-see in Melbourne is Brevard Zoo. Home to 165 different species, the zoo allows visitors to feed the giraffes, take a kayak trip or enjoy a paddle boat ride round the grounds. Those with a spirit of adventure should not miss out on the aerial views available from Treetop Trek, a breathtaking zipline through the local forest.
Have any budding scientists or artists in the family? Stop by the Brevard Museum of Art and Science, Mad Science of Brevard County, the Brevard Art Museum, or the Henegar Center for the Arts for several eye-opening cultural experiences. Or, get that heart pumping at Andretti Thrill park before heading out for a nice, relaxing lie on one of several beaches. Cypress Lake is another great option for getting out on the water, with plenty of airboats on hand for a tour of the natural scenery.
For a unique way to spend an afternoon in Melbourne, sample the local brew during a tour at the Florida Beer Company. Just the treat you need to get ready for a fine dining experience at one of many different vibrant bars and restaurants.
