  • The Brevard Museum of History and Natural Science
    Before paved streets and residential blocks took its place, a maze of wetlands rife with rustling wildlife thrived in Central Florida. Such a scene is hard to imagine amid a backdrop of loud car horns, but skeptical visitors to The Brevard Museum of History and Natural Science can travel back in time and see it for themselves on a stroll through the museum’s 19.5-acre nature preserve. This remarkable preserve joins special exhibits dedicated to regional and cultural artifacts in fulfilling the museum’s mission to keep Florida’s heritage alive in the minds of its current inhabitants. Since the nonprofit facility first opened in 1973, an influx of state and philanthropic funding has spawned further expansion. One of the most crucial add-ons, the Taylor Wing, now houses a nonstop procession of visiting exhibitions and the kid-themed Imagination Center, where young hands can touch actual fossils of mammoths and 8-track tapes. Popular ongoing exhibits include large dioramas of local ecosystems and the Windover Story exhibit, which illustrates how the residents of Brevard County lived 7,000 years ago.

  • Sublime Restaurant and Sangria Lounge
    In designing Sublime Restaurant and Sangria Lounge, Michael Perez drew inspiration from his Cuban heritage. He even used his grandmother's recipe to create the restaurant's signature garlic-seasoned beef empanadas. The pastry is just one of Sublime's tapas, though. The menu also includes hot plates of goat-cheese quesadillas and cold snacks, such as deviled eggs filled with housemade guacamole. The Latin-style dishes are a perfect complement to the bar's eight sangrias, which steep overnight to develop more complex flavors. A Vintage Setting Although Perez's eclectic menu helped Sublime earned an OpenTable Diners' Choice award, its historic location also played an important role. Located in a 1920s building that one housed a bank, the restaurant and lounge now features two floors of seating with hardwood floors and geometric windows that speak of Cocoa Beach's history.

  • Space Coast Brews Cruise
    After Space Coast Brews Cruise founder Don Roberts moved to Brevard County from his native Pittsburgh in 1992, he searched in vain to find a good source of local craft beer. So he did the only logical thing: he started making his own. As years went by, the Space Coast region began to develop plenty of small-batch breweries and local craft beer bars of its own, which gave Roberts another idea?the Space Coast Brews Cruise. Safely ferried by chauffered van, guests visit gastropubs, breweries, and bars for pairings and beer tastings, sampling delicious glasses of craft Belgian, porter, lager, and pale ale with friends and family. Space Coast Brews Cruise encourages guests to please drink responsibly and designate a sober driver. Space Coast Brews Cruise does not encourage or condone driving under the influence of alcohol.
