    We are from sunny southern California and live 15 minutes from some great beaches in MDR and Santa Monica…BUT nothing comes close to one of the most picturesque beaches on earth… COCO BEACH 🏖️! From parking feet from the beach and walking on some beautiful white sand, the whole environment was breathtaking! What we all loved the most and especially my children was the WARM Atlantic ocean! It felt like warm bathwater! To top it off the salt content didn’t hurt our eyes (we forgot our goggles) and the floor of the sea was as smooth as the beach. No big rocks, and plenty of sea shells to be collected. Fun had by all… BUT please
    reserve a chair with umbrella for rent already set up, or make sure to bring your own umbrella and chair… it gets HOT 🥵 in July!

    Pros: close to Orlando, umbrella/chairs + board rentals. Washrooms (relatively clean) and showers on site. Free parking close by. Cons: only 2 showers, very long lineups. No food/drink available for purchase.

    It's a great place to go for a walk. There are small shops with souvenirs and restaurants with tons of seating available and a great view.

    I have lived in the area for years and have driven past this place hundreds of times. I always thought that it was just a store selling geodes and fossils. I finally stopped in this place the other day and I am kicking myself for not stopping here sooner. It is fascinating and there is a lot to it for first-time visitors. According to their website, the store first opened in November 1996. They started designing exhibits for museums and other locations. They liked doing it so much and wanted to share it with their community so, in 2006 they designed a non-profit museum right into the design for the new Dinosaur Store. The NEW Dinosaur Store and Adventure Zone opened on the first floor in March 2009, and the Museum of Dinosaurs and Ancient Cultures opened on the second and third floors in April 2017. It is fascinating. There are 3 floors to the entire site. The first floor is a store and other adventures. The second floor is the dinosaur exhibits and the third floor is dedicated to ancient civilizations. The prices are about $12/person to see the upper 2 floors. The exhibits are top quality and truly are the best I have seen in any museum. I spent about hours looking at all the different pieces from various periods. It was fascinating, beautiful, and amazing. I highly recommend this place to any visitor in the area. Enjoy.

    I visit this place every 6-8 weeks. I have no idea about these service comments. Jason, the bartender, has been here for years and always gets drinks in a quick manner. I recommend this place after 4 every day. Friday after work or on holiday is great. I would say the only negative is that they close it down at the slightest bad weather. Otherwise, this is one of the best happy hours in the area and prices are reasonable for a touristy area. I live near Niagara falls, I know touristy.

    Small but well designed skate park. Small crowds make for great fun and little waiting. Bring water and sun screen as the facility is open and it can get hot in the summer sun.

    Beautiful beach within easy walking distance of the parking lot. Restrooms were clean and nearby. Limited number of covered picnic tables. Within walking distance of RonJon Surf Shop, Keylime Pie Company and 7-Eleven. Lifeguards on duty. Would be a great location to watch a rocket launch. Parking is $25 for the day and you have to pay through the app.

    Wow, what a performance. We had a wonderful entertaining evening enjoying a musical-play delivered by some talented actors/actresses. The title of this play was called "Once Upon A Mattress." The story was filled with lots of laughter and muse. The stage delivery, costumes and theatre set was truly amazing in that of a Broadway Show. Thanks to each of the performers for supplying us with such a fun watchful performance. Yes, we would recommend seeing this musical before it ends. We also look forward to attending other events in the future.

    Funky, small place on the main road. They serve infused locally made wines with key lime, coconut, mango and other fruit flavors. Grape wine and fruit wines available. Murielle is a local winery. They had several infused wines. Tasting are at no charge and they have a large selection of local sauces etc. Tasha, the server was a riot! Fun place.
