For decades, the world has known Cape Canaveral as a launchpad where one giant leap for mankind began and aerospace and technology were born. Today, this culture expands with major tech companies, eclectic retail, restaurants that foodies will drool over, outdoor recreation, and the second-largest cruise port in the country – all with a front-row seat on launch day. Cape Canaveral is a magnificent beach side community loaded with culture, communities and wonderful city amenities to enjoy. With access to the Kennedy Space Center, there are many industrious opportunities for work and schooling with three major universities, many plazas and malls around Brevard County. Cape Canaveral is separated and exclusive from the mainland by the cities of Merritt Island, Indian River Beach, and the Banana River.
