Dip your toes in the Atlantic Ocean or Indian River at one of Orlando-Melbourne’s many beaches. With nearby neighbours like the seaside towns of Indialantic and Satellite Beach, you’ll be in good company on the shore.
If you need some time out of the ever-present sunshine, there are plenty of things to do in Orlando-Melbourne. The Liberty Bell Memorial Museum and Historic Rossetter House Museum hold Orlando-Melbourne’s past, while the Foosaner Art Museum puts 2000 years of art history on display.

See more of the sea from Crane Creek and Ballard Park, or head inland to Wickham Park. If you don’t see a gator in these parks, you can always drive out to Gatorland for a glimpse of Florida’s resident reptiles.

If you can’t hang ten, kayaks and airboats can get you closer to Florida’s wildlife. While the dolphins might evade your gaze, the manatees usually mosey by slowly enough for a photo-op. The tropical plant life of Cocoa Beach’s Thousand Islands makes the perfect backdrop, whatever the picture.
Further up the Space Coast, you can visit the Kennedy Space Centre. Learn more about Florida’s aerospace history, and, if you’re lucky, see a rocket launch from Cape Canaveral.
Before you take off for Toronto’s waterfront, the Cocoa Beach Pier is your destination for the best lookout over the Atlantic Ocean, as it rolls into shore.

For action in the water, Sebastian Inlet State Park makes for an ideal surf spot. Along the park’s three miles of beach, you can also swim, scuba, or fish in the clear aquamarine waters.
