Took a day trip to Canaveral National Seashore during our week long stay in Orlando. Have 2 kids ages 5 & 9. We took Black Point Wildlife Drive 1st, which was fine, was hoping to see some Gators but mostly saw lots of different birds. Next stopped at the Manatee Viewing area and did see 5 Mantee's floating in the water right next to the viewing platform. Also saw a Jellyfish floating right under the water line. We ran into a couple locals who recommended going on the "Bio Lab Road" if we wanted to see Gators. So we actually followed them (they were showing some freinds around- touring)
and we saw several Gators in the Marsh along the Bio Lab Road. It was really neat for the kids to see. It connects to hwy 402 that heads to the south end of the beach so we went to the beach (Playalinda beach) from there. The beach is fabulous. All natural, not commericalized, no hotels.
The boys loved it and it was so pretty. You can see the Launch Pads at Kennedy SC from there. Could see shuttle Endeavor on the Launch pads. Got to see a Rocket Launch (probe going to Jupiter) the day we were there too. Very Cool & perfect timing. We spent the rest of the day relaxing on the beach & the kids had a great time. The only thing wish I would have brought a beach umbrella and a cooler/snacks. Beautiful area & highly recommend.
