Discover the Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge
Get in a Cape Canaveral car rental and head to the Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge, the beautiful wildlife front to the Kennedy Space Center. It spans about 140,000 acres and is comprised of an array of habitats, including marshes, freshwater bodies, coastal dunes, pine forests and estuaries. You'll find hardwood hammocks that house more than 1,500 plant and animal species. Bird watchers in particular will enjoy a visit to the refuge - it's known for its abundance of fowl, especially between the months of October and April, when you'll find a wide variety of wading and shore birds as well as raptors.
Relax on the beach
Use your Cape Canaveral car rental to cruise around the multitude of warm, sandy beaches scattered along the coast. The 24-mile stretch is home to the popular Apollo, Vero and Cocoa beaches. Spread out a blanket and catch some rays under the bright Florida sun or hit the water for some wet and wild adventures. If you want to spy on some sea turtles, head to Playalinda Beach - June and July are the prime months for catching a peek at these endangered animals, and you can sign up for a ranger-led turtle watch during these months.
