CENTRAL EAST FLORIDA
The central part of Florida's Atlantic Coast is sometimes referred to as the “Treasure Coast”, so named for the many Spanish galleons laden with New World treasures that sunk just off the coast in the 17th and 18th centuries. The cities that make up the Treasure Coast boast beautiful, unspoiled beaches, world-class golf courses, and a way of life that is considerably more low-key than that of its neighbors to the south (Miami, Palm Beach, etc.)
Just north of the Treasure Coast are Florida's surfing hot spots – Daytona Beach Cocoa Beach. These town, with their “Gidget Goes on Spring Break” atmospheres, feature a wide range of activities along their beaches, including amusement park rides both on land and on piers, arcades, candy shops, open-air bars, surf shops and vendors selling lemonade and corn dogs on the sidewalk.
Cocoa Beach is located in what's commonly referred to as the Space Coast, one of the homes of NASA's space exploration program. It is the home of Kennedt Space Center (KSC). Daytona Beach is just a few miles north, and is famous as the host of the Daytona 500 NASCAR race. Daytona is also known as ground zero for Bike Week, a week-long celebration of all things motorized, tattooed and leather-clad.
