True island vibes and pride can be found here on the largest island in Florida and home to the Kennedy Space Center. Merritt Island has much to offer visitors, with a wildlife refuge and acres of natural beauty.
NASA'S Kennedy Space Center is a major attraction. It is the place to meet an astronaut, find out all things space related, and enjoy interactive exhibits. There's much more to the island than the space center though, with incredible landscapes around the island and within the wildlife refuge, where you'll find hidden burial mounds, abandoned ghost towns, and village sites of ancient Native Americans.Black Point Wildlife Drive is a chance to see rare species of birds and alligators. As you drive along, make sure you keep your eyes peeled!
