The cruise we took to the Bahamas docked in Port Canaveral on the way down, and I got to spend a few awesome hours with my friends April Marie and Jeff (along with Elaina, April Marie’s daughter).
We cruised around Cocoa Beach, Cocoa Village and Merritt Island. The place had been decimated with the government stopped space operations at nearby Cape Canaveral.
That left the area with a choice…sink into despair, or reinvent itself.
The town of Cape Canaveral bulked up its port and made it a more attractive
location for cruise ships and their passengers.
Cocoa Beach put their money into the quality of living in the town, and the businesses followed suit. So did the people!
Take a quick tour with the four of us.
And, in your own…
If you build it, they will come.
