Port Canaveral (about 3 miles away) - Lots of restaurants, welcome center, watch cruise ships, fishing charters.

There are several kayak rental places so you could possibly kayak on the riverside - I haven’t done it yet myself but people tell me you regularly see dolphins and manatees in the river.


Watch a sunrise from the beach (Google to find out sunrise times)
Go for a moonlit walk on the beach (Google to find out night moon appearances)

Deep sea fishing:

There are several levels of deep sea charter fishing at Port Canaveral depending on what you are looking for. You’ll probably need to make a reservation to be safe.
