Merritt Island is not only Florida’s largest island, but also one of the most entertaining spots to plan a weekend getaway to. Whether you want to indulge in the history of the Kennedy Space Center, or catch some of the waves on Cocoa Beach, Merritt Island is the place for you and your family to do both. Of course, we often write about the great golf courses that the sunshine state has to offer, but this has to be one of our favorite spots to visit for the overall area.
So, let’s get the basics out of the way – how do you get there from our Ridge Landing Residential Airpark? While there are a few local airports you can fly into, we recommend landing your aircraft at the Merritt Island Airport which is a section of the Titusville-Cocoa Airport. With the flight totaling around 36 minutes, you may want to stay the night and take advantage of the short trip, and even better news – their tie down fees are very affordable.
