Treasure Island
    Estimated driving distance from Orlando: 2 hours and 26 minutes 
    Although alcohol is permitted on the beach, it comes with some major restrictions. Because of the massive limits, the only times beachgoers can drink alcohol are from 6 p.m. to 1 a.m. and from 5 a.m. to 8 a.m., according to Treasure Island Beach website.  Although there are limits on drinking, tourists still flock to the beach for its white sand, crystal blue waters and watercolor sunsets.

Sand Point Park
    10 East Max Brewer Causeway, Titusville, 321-567-3775, Sand Point Park  
    Fee: no
    This nearly 30-acre park has plenty of room to spread out and look to the sky for launches. It might not have the total unobstructed view that some of the parks around it might have, but it is close enough you will be looking strait up for most of the launch.

The owner of the “I-4 Eyesore” says this building will be finished every year 
    SuperChannel 55 President Claud Bowers started this building over 16 years ago and was funding it completely through donations to his Christian network. Unfortunately for him, the 2008 recession brought those donations to a screeching halt along with construction, leaving the building partially finished. Bowers makes an annual promise that the building will be completed around Thanksgiving that is never met. He has also refused to use his own money to finish the building because he believes it will be completed through “God’s will.”

 Cape Canaveral
     52 minutes from Orlando
     What’s great about it: It’s got the Canaveral National Seashore, a 24-mile beach that is home to 1,045 plant species and 310 bird species. There’s also a Manatee Sanctuary Park if you want to see recovering Sea cows. Baja’s Chowder and Seafood is a good spot for some food, but do try to time your trip right so you can see a rocket launch from the beach.
     Beaches to check out: Canaveral National Seashore, Jetty Park, Cocoa Beach and Sebastian Inlet State Recreation Area
