Beach Getaway From Orlando?

By: Jill Martin


Ok, if I only had a quarter for every time someone asked, "Where's the closest beach to Orlando?" I would have lots of quarters! If you are going to Orlando with your family for spring break, summer vacation, a fall getaway or a winter escape, you'll be very happy to know that Cocoa Beach is only about 55 minutes away.

Check out this quick video of Cocoa Beach and Florida's Space Coast so you can see all there is to do here. Definitely make plans to visit this surf town. You will love it!

We stayed at The Royal Mansions Resort on Cape Canaveral. Multiple bedrooms, full kitchen, breakfast each morning, and the beaches are so wide and wonderful. Ron Jon is another super fun resort as they have an amazing pool area with slides. Just depends on what you seek.

Enjoy the beach! Visit Kennedy Space Center!

Thanks for the tip! We are going to visit Orlando for the first time this summer and were wondering how far the beach would be from our hotel. We're staying at the WorldQuest Orlando which we read great things about on . I guess we'll have to rent a car for the day since Cocoa Beach looks lovely!!
