Canaveral National Seashore is a Florida barrier island that is a haven for families in search of a quiet place to enjoy some R&R. The property is a sanctuary for many different rare and endangered animal and bird species and is home to over 1,000 varieties of plants and 310 types of birds. Fifteen of the animals that claim the seashore as their residence are in danger of extinction.
With 24 miles of undisturbed shoreline, Canaveral National Seashore feels like a private oasis for families who are looking to stroll along the coast for hours, drinking in the air of tranquility and peace. The area is quite popular for fishermen who roam the waters in search of clams, finfish, oysters, blue crabs, and shrimp.
Mosquito Lagoon lays claim to 2/3's of the property and bears the distinction of having been awarded the Outstanding Florida Water designation. It also forms a part of the 156 mile Indian River Lagoon, a popular place for canoeing and fishing.
Canaveral National Seashore offers many attractions for families to enjoy. Though the beach is one of its strongest appeals, many flock to the area in the hopes of spotting some rare species of sea turtles sunning along the shore or to participate in a guided Night Sky watch. To the southern portion of the island lies John F. Kennedy Space Center which is also a home to many activities throughout the year.
Canaveral National Seashore enjoys hot and humid weather in season but otherwise is known for its mild climate. Hurricane season occurs between the months of June and October.
