Re: Cocoa Beach, FL

Cocoa Beach is one of my favorite areas of Florida, though I haven't been to the Gulf Coast since I was a kid. I am stuck going to the Atlantic side as my father in law lives in Jupiter, which while botanically is very nice, is way too developed for my taste. We have also been to Orlando many times, which is also a little too crowded for me. The Space Coast gives you that South Florida feel but isn't as crowded as Jupiter and south and the Orlando areas. One of these days, I would like to go back to the Gulf side, which I think I would prefer to the Atlantic side.
