New Cocoa Beach Experiences
Perhaps you’ve visited Cocoa Beach before. Maybe your visit took place in the last five years? Or maybe it took place when you were a child? Whenever it took place, it’s not just the “same old, same old” place anymore. In fact, if you’re looking to go somewhere new and explore new things, plan a trip back to Cocoa Beach! There’s always something new to check out when visiting.
No matter the age, no matter the interests, visiting Cocoa Beach never gets old. From restaurants and breweries to spas and outdoor adventures, here’s a few places, newer and maybe, unknown places that you may not heard of or been to before.
With its grand opening taking place in April 2017, the Dinosaur & Ancient Cultures Museum is a fun experience for all ages. Explore prehistoric life, including dinosaurs, and the accomplishments of the ancient people. A venue that couples a hand-on experience with educational information makes for a fun time.
Grab a baker’s dozen on the way to the beach and treat yo’ self! From key lime to chocolate glazed to even a sriracha-flavored donut, The Donut Experiment will whet your appetite. Don’t miss out on this latest addition to Cocoa Beach.
If you’ve been to Cocoa Beach before, it’s likely you’ve visited the Cocoa Beach Pier. Well in 2017, the bar at the end of the pier went through a major renovation. The Rikki Tiki Tavern has nearly doubled in size and offers a gorgeous, panoramic view of the ocean. Plus, there’s live entertainment and yummy food to accompany the view.
Minuteman Causeway has recently been renovated and it’s a great area to experience international cuisine like Cuban, German, and Caribbean to name a few, as well as live music, and shops to peruse.
Whether you are an avid surfer or just appreciate the skill of those who ride the waves, you will get an inside look at the history of surfing here in Cocoa Beach.
A family owned and operated brewery, this is a hidden spot that has several featured beer options, especially their Cocoa Beach Pale Ale, a gold medal winner in the Best Florida Beer Championship. But if you aren’t a beer-drinker and prefer a non-alcoholic option, they brew a mean root beer that has been given a thumbs-up by past visitors.
Escape to total rest and relaxation at Cocoa Beach Spa. This full service spa offers treatments that will leave you feeling pampered including massages, manicures and pedicures, facials and much more. Renew your mind, body and spirit at this spa in the heart of Cocoa Beach.
