Things to Do & Must-See Attractions in Cape Canaveral
You can enjoy one of the best views along the Space Coast with a visit to Cape Canaveral’s new Exploration Tower. Built in 2013, the curved, sail-like building is a design match with the myriad cruise ships that venture in and out of Port Canaveral, and the viewing platform atop the seven-story structure offers an ideal vantage point for watching the bustle of the port or a NASA rocket launch from Kennedy Space Center, which sits about 10 miles to the north. Exploration Tower also features inside exhibits, including interactive movies in a two-story auditorium, and a simulator where would-be cruise captains can try their hand at navigating Port Canaveral.
A local brewery with Southern-style beers, the Florida Beer Co. was an early part of the craft beer scene since it was Indian River Brewery in Melbourne, Florida. Now with its large new facilities and tasting rooms, the brewery makes 28 different styles of beer, many with a distinct Florida touch such as a hint of orange or key lime.
The brewing process can be viewed from the visitors center, which as 100 feet of plate glass windows to watch behind. Florida Beer Co. has some of the most modern equipment in brewing, employing the latest in beer technology and quality control. There’s also a tap room which has 25+ of the original beers and ciders, including some limited releases available only in the tasting room, on tap at any given time. The top regional brewery is available to see in full by private tour only.
