Car Rental in Merritt Island, Florida

For a family that is looking for adventure, nature and gorgeous weather, the vacation spot of choice is Merritt Island, Florida. The lively combination of NASA's Kennedy Space Center, glittering ocean and beaches, Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge and seafood restaurants and marinas make this a wonderful island city for any adventuresome family to visit.

The NASA space program has made Merritt Island, a Florida city just east of Orlando, a much sought after destination. Dubbed the "space coast," this island off the Eastern shores of Florida in the Atlantic Ocean is a hot-bed of space station activity. It is home to the famed Kennedy Space Center, NASA's launch headquarters where space lovers and history buffs alike will enjoy touring the launch areas, meeting veteran astronauts, viewing massive rockets up close and training in spaceflight simulators all in one day.

Another great feature of Merritt Island that nature lovers everywhere flock to is also a direct result of NASA's influence. The Merritt Island National Refuge was created by NASA when they purchased a massive amount of land for the space program that they did not ultimately need to use. This refuge offers a range of habitats, making it a healthful home to more than 1000 species of plants, 68 different amphibians and reptiles, 330 birds, 31 different mammals and more than 100 species of fish. Visitors can enjoy a day of animal watching and can revel in the natural flora and fauna of Florida.

One of the greatest aspects of Merritt Island, aside from being the home of NASA and the Merritt Island National Refuge, is its proximity to Orlando and other popular Florida cities. Orlando is home to Disneyworld and other major theme parks and is only a short drive east from Merritt Island. Getting a rental car in Merritt Island will enable you to easily get around to the many sights, as well as make a day trip to Orlando.

If you are going to be flying in or out of Merritt Island, the closest airport is the Melbourne Regional Airport, which serves the Treasure and Space coasts of Florida. If you need a rental car from the airport, you will easily be able to get one.

Merritt Island also has the added benefit of gorgeous Florida weather. The temperatures are warm year round and the sun shines often on this idyllic island oasis. Visitors can sun themselves on the beach or by the pool and can also enjoy different types of boating excursions including deep-sea charters and group fishing trips all year round.

While Merritt Island is generally a beautiful place to visit any time of the year, the best times to come are in May and September, when fewer visitors come because kids are still in school. The temperatures are a bit cooler than at the height of the summer and there is less rain during both of these months than in June, July and August.

Merritt Island, Florida is a wonderful destination for any family that enjoys pristine nature, gorgeous beaches, quaint shopping, delicious restaurants and learning about the history of the space program. There is literally something for everyone on this idyllic island, so next time you are planning a fun-filled family vacation, consider a stay on popular and pristine Merritt Island, Florida.
