Melbourne, Florida is definitely a tourist attraction. For anyone who lives in the cold and frozen northern section of the US, the beautiful sunny beaches alone are worth the trip. But as beautiful as they may be, the beaches may not necessarily hold the attention of member of the family for every day that you’re here. So – for those days that you may want to do something just a little different from the surf and sand, here are a few suggestions.
For the animal lover: Hop on by the zoo. The Brevard zoo has more than 120 different animal exhibits. You can feed some of the animals and can also ride the train or take a paddleboat or kayak ride. If you get to the rhino exhibit at the right time and provided the rhinos cooperate, you can actually get up and close and personal to a real rhino!
For the adventurer: Treetop Trek is the way to go. They have multiple zip line courses going over wetlands and alligators where you can zip from tree top to tree top. They also have obstacles courses, bridges and tightropes and cater to all ages and inclinations, including the younger children and those who wish to stay closer to the ground!
