Sometimes it’s nice to feel like you’re on vacation. Maybe you don’t have the time or the money to get away, but, in a town like Cocoa Beach, you don’t need to travel far to get in the vacation mindset. Here are a few ways to have a weekend getaway without having to leave town. If you are coming to Cocoa Beach from out-of-town, this is a great starter guide to relaxing like a local.
Have a Cold One
There are numerous bars around Cocoa Beach. If you throw a rock in any given area, the rock will probably land near a bar. Down Minutemen alone has at least six to stop at and enjoy a beverage. Hunker Down Hideaway is located behind Fat Kahunas and Coconuts. They have an open courtyard with a stage for live music. Minuteman Tavern has a dark wood bar with a full liquor wall that runs along the entire hall-like room. Twin Finnegan’s is a newer bar across from the Cocoa Beach City Hall that is a mix between an Irish pub and a surfer hotspot. They have a great variety of craft beers and wines. On Sunday mornings they have mimosas and micheladas. Heidi’s Jazz Club has been a Downtown staple since 1992, and a great spot to wind down an evening. Enjoy the atmosphere and live music while you sip your favorite drink and reflect over your weekend out on the town.
