• Jetty Park - Cape Canaveral, Florida

      Roadtrip Attraction
      Jetty Park has one of Florida's finest beaches, which alone would make it worth visiting. There's also a fine fishing pier if fishing is your thing. For those traveling in RV's, there's an excellent and reasonably priced campground. But perhaps the biggest draw of all is the cruise ship terminal, serving Disney and other major cruise lines. It's a rare thrill to watch those huge vessels full of happy vacationers pull out within 100 yards or so of where you're standing, and to hear Disney's unique ship's horn play 'When You Wish Upon a Star'.

      If you go:
      The park is a pretty good viewing point for launches from the nearby NASA facility, but be sure to book well in advance if that's part of your plans. And note that rocket launches are frequently rescheduled. A day use fee applies for non-campers.
