Anytime is “in season” when the Space Shuttle or satellites are being launched from nearby Kennedy Space Center or Cape Canaveral.  The old saying “on a clear day you can see forever” is applicable on those very special days.    Cocoa Beach enjoys mild temperatures year round.   This city is a paradise for anyone enjoying the out of doors. The city’s average temperature is 61 F in January and 81.6 F in July and August.   Any time of year is the perfect time to enjoy one of the beautiful beaches.  The tourist“season”, beginning in mid-November  and usually lasting through April is the busiest  Summer is a great time for those with families as there are plenty of wonderful and exciting things for children of any age, both locally, and in nearby Orlando.  No matter what the time of year, the visitor can expect warm, balmy breezes, glorious sun and hopefully a satellite launch as well.
