Celebrate Columbus Day Weekend or Indigenous People’s Day
If you get this holiday off from work, it’s a great time to spend an extra night with us to earn your way to a free night with our Frequent Stay Program. With the fantastic weather, this weekend is often filled by guests with fun outdoor activities including the Running Wild 5K. If you can’t make it this weekend and want to celebrate our native peoples, visit us in November to enjoy cultural live music at the Native Rhythms Festival, a three day event held during Native American Heritage Month that honors the culture of the indigenous peoples of the Americas.
Get Ready for Rocket Launches
Experience the thrill of watching a launch in Cape Canaveral, take a tour of the Kennedy Space Center, or even meet an astronaut. Grab a mission manual, go on a scavenger hunt in the visitor complex and earn a reward for learning about NASA’s Artemis Project. Or explore Planet Play, an indoor interactive area where kids of all ages (including adults) can play with the planets via unique digital and physical activities. See the schedule here.
Experience Artistic Events
If you’re planning a visit in October, don’t miss the Fall Art & Craft Expo in the open areas, pine woods and lakes of Wickham Park. Admission and parking are free, and there are 250 booths of mostly handmade arts and crafts outside in the fresh air to peruse. Bring the whole family and enjoy live music, a variety of food, adult beverages and a free kids’ zone. Get more details on this year’s festival here.
See Some Surf Festivals
If you’re visiting in November, check out the Annual Military Surf Festival, and watch our veterans learn to surf. Inspired by Travis Strong, a dedicated American hero who served our country, this event enables the community to come together to express gratitude to him and every veteran by bringing them a positive vibe and experience through the healing power of the ocean. There will be live music, food and entertainment. Get more details here.
