Fall is a fantastic time of year to leave the hustle and bustle of daily life behind and head for Florida instead. A trip to Cocoa Beach promises to be an inspiring choice and this guide isa great way to elevate your stay from start to finish. Whether you’re looking for time on the sand or can’t wait to shop and dine your way through a stay, a Cocoa Beach fall has something exciting waiting for you to enjoy!

Spend Well-Deserved Time on the Sand

Finding your way to Cocoa Beach in the fall means leaving that new seasonal chill in the air far behind and swapping it out for time on the sand instead! Cocoa Beach enjoys fantastic weather year-round, and in the fall, visitors can typically count on mild weather patterns to enjoy and plenty of sunshine to match. That means if you happen to be a beach hopping enthusiast, you’ll have every reason to gather your traveling crew and enjoy as much time as possible at one of Cocoa Beach’s many beach parks! While Lori Wilson Park tends to be a fan-favorite stop for dunes, walk overs, shore bird spotting and picnic pavilions alike, time at Robert P. Murkshe Memorial Park promises to be equally scenic and fun! Additionally, guests will find time at Constitution Bicentennial Park a great way to spend an afternoon on the sand while Sidney Fischer Park and Ramp Road Park offer their own charming landscapes and water access points to check out as well this fall.

Visit the Cocoa Beach Surf Museum

Surf culture thrives in Cocoa Beach year-round and if you’re visiting this fall, it’s a great time to plan a visit to the Cocoa Beach Surf Museum!

Enjoy Time at Golf N Gator

Nothing says Florida fall fun quite like a round of gator-themed mini golf! Fortunately, those heading to Cocoa Beach this time of year will have plenty of course options to choose from. Making your way to Golf N Gator is a great place to start! Located at 6355 N. Atlantic Avenue in nearby Cape Canaveral, Golf N Gator pairs whimsical putt-putt courses with access to alligators, snakes, and turtles that offer guests a glimpse into the amazing creatures that call Florida home. Golf N Gator hosts two 18-hole courses for guests to enjoy depending on preference. Of course, if you’re up for both options, you can do that as well! Swamp Cave and Gator Mountain both offer up a fun and inviting atmosphere for mini golfers to gather with family and friends and enjoy a little friendly competition in good company. Being able to hold and take pictures with live alligators afterward is the cherry on top.

Explore the Brevard Zoo

Fewer crowds typically are found in Cocoa Beach in the fall making it a wonderful time of year to take your traveling crew to the Brevard Zoo.
