Enjoy time at Cocoa Beach
Grad groups South Coast-bound for the sun and sand experience of a lifetime will find hotspot Cocoa Beach the perfect place to spend day #1 of their Orlando adventure. Where else can you witness a space launch from a towel? Swim, surf, kayak, parasail, fish, whale watch or just dig your happy toes into the hot sand while dolphins frolic offshore. This surfing capital of the East Coast and the primary tourist destination on the Florida Space Coast features popular area attractions like the Astronaut Hall of Fame, Andretti Thrill Park, iconic Ron Jon’s Surf Shop flagship store, Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge, Kennedy Space Center’s Visitor Complex, and Jungle Adventures. Pamper yourself with an indulgent spa day or work on that “Cocoa” brown Florida tan in this idyllic coastal paradise!

Ron Jon’s Surf Shop
You would be hard-pressed to find a more comprehensive outlet for “board sports equipment retail and all things lifestyle” than one of surfing enthusiast Ron Di Menna’s Ron Jon Surf Shops! His off-the-hook stores are world-famous destinations with locations in New Jersey, Florida, South Carolina, and Maryland. Founded in 1959, the business “swelled” over the years to become an integral part of many beach communities, where working for Ron Jon is a family tradition; no surf retailer in the world has a more loyal generational following! The iconic Flagship Cocoa Beach store has been dubbed “One of a Kind,” and at 52,000 square feet is their largest to date. Open 365/24-7, the Cocoa Beach Ron Jon’s boasts a cool glass elevator, live music, free wi-fi and two stories of everything you’d ever want in the way of the premium sun, skate and surf gear and awesome souvenirs; Cowabunga, dude!

Bar-B-Q at the Beach
Certain foods taste truly AMAZING at the beach, don’t you agree? After a hard day’s play, you and your grad group will enjoy delicious specialties and all the freshest fixin’s from local favorite Sonny’s BBQ - served up seaside just for you. Mmmmmmm...life is good - but it’s even better with excellent BBQ!
