BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – It is officially the fall season. Besides all the festive décor lining storefronts and a subtle pumpkin and apple spice aroma filling your nostrils, the air is starting to make its way to cooler temperatures, which means being outdoors is all the more appealing.

Some of you may choose to take more bike rides, long walks, or peruse outdoor farmer and craft markets. However, there are other ways to enjoy this season that may be a new idea for some of you.

And as the weather begins to cool down, especially in these weeks and months to come, now is the perfect time to consider camping.

Florida’s Space Coast is home to a picturesque, natural landscape, making it easy to pitch a tent or pull in an RV. Whether a camping enthusiast or new to the whole experience or it’s just been a while and are looking for a fun getaway, here are a few spots to consider:


Jetty Park – Port Canaveral
