Kennedy Space Center, just an hour's drive away, offers a fascinating experience for the whole family. You'd have to plan your visit carefully to catch a rocket launch but captivating experiences such as shuttle launch simulators are available all year round. Swap space for spells at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios Florida, and don't forget to pick up your own wand from the recreated Diagon Alley.


Live the outdoor life in Palm Bay

Vacations here are all about the great outdoors but the pace is always up to you. Take in the sweeping ocean views as you enjoy a spot of lunch at a waterfront caf_ or grab a spot on a guided kayaking eco-tour in the Indian River Lagoon. Either way, spotting gentle manatees is always a possibility. If you've brought the kids, they'll love spending the afternoon whizzing down the slides at the Palm Bay Aquatic Center while you squeeze in some laps. Enjoying an evening stroll through Castaways Point Park can be a lovely way to round off the day.


Visit Palm Bay in spring or fall

The best time to visit Palm Bay is often found to be around April and May. Spring is far more comfortable than the high humidity, crowds, and almost daily thunderstorms served up in summer. You'll also likely find that air fares are lower and that you can score a great deal on your Palm Bay vacation rental. The fall months of September and October are also an option, although you may find yourself battening down the hatches if a hurricane finds land. The snowbirds start arriving from November and rates for rentals will rise accordingly.
