BREVARD CCOUNTY – National Geographic has released their top 25destinations on the rise for 2021, and Florida’s Space Coast is listed as one of the amazing family journeys alongside locations in Canada, England, Hungary, and Romania. The section highlights Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex and the incredible opportunities to view launches, and also mentions the natural wonders of the surrounding Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge (including the manatees and bioluminescence in the Indian River Lagoon.)

“We’re honored to be included in the Best of the World for 2021 and are in great company with the other members on this list,” says Peter Cranis, Executive Director Space Coast Office of Tourism. “Visitors are inspired to dream bigger here, whether that’s from viewing a launch or encountering our unique ecosystems, beaches, and wildlife.”
