Of course, the ideal visit to Port Canaveral would be for the reason of leaving the Port on one of the many ships that call it home, for a multi day trip to the Bahamas or another exotic destination, but it’s also a great place to visit for an afternoon. Jetty Park, at the eastern end of the Port, offers campsites, a fishing pier, and one of the best views of the enormous cruise ships, coming and going from the Port, that you will find. Make plans to eat at one of the fine restaurants in The Cove, on a Sunday afternoon, and you’ll be able to watch the Disney, Carnival and Royal Caribbean ships from up close, as they leave. You’ll be so close you can pick out your friends as they wave from the deck. So pull up a chair, drop a line in the water, and relax while the calm excitement of Port Canaveral happens all around you!!
