Brevard County, the heart of the Space Coast, is located in the east-central area of Florida. Brevard County is Florida’s second largest county and is tucked in the middle of Osceola, Orange, and Indian River Counties. Brevard County is home to world famous Kennedy Space Center and some of the most beautiful beaches along the Atlantic.
Due to its location, Brevard County also is only an hour drive to attractions such as Walt Disney World, Universal Studios, and International Drive. With its space-age technology, beautiful beaches, and terrific tourist destinations, the Space Coast is where the world lifts off.
The Atlantic Ocean is right here. Wildlife of all shapes (alligators and egrets, for instance) generally thrive peacefully in our midst. We have a diversified mix of Metropolitan luxuries and small-town tranquility. Modern explorers soar into space aboard the shuttle. Disney World characters prance about at sea and only an hour’s drive away. And America’s pastime brings myriad delights throughout the Intracoastal waterway and during spring training baseball games at Space Coast Stadium.
The Space Coast—that’s what folks call our 72-mile-long, 1,019-square-mile county of about 510,000 people that truly is like no other place in the United States. After all, where else can you witness the launch of a space shuttle with alligators watching?
