Publishers Note – Summer 2023

Publisher's Note

Florida is a state of newcomers and many of our recent arrivals don’t realize how historical the state is, probably through no fault of their own. That’s because most school children are taught about the establishment of Jamestown in 1607 or the arrival of the pilgrims in Plymouth in 1620. But little time is spent — if any at all — on the founding and settlement, much earlier, of St. Augustine in 1565.

Something for everyone

Space Coast Boating & Fishing, Travel & Outdoors, Wildlife

Living on the Space Coast has its perks, and one of them is that it offers all kinds of boat tours for anyone who wants to get out on the water — airboats to kayaks, day or night, scenic and wildlife. Nature figures highly in the tours, as does bioluminescence where underwater creatures that create light turn the surface to glowing colors, and of course — being the Space Coast — rocket launches leaving arcing, brilliant white trails against the blue sky.

Seeing red

Moments in Space History, Space and Aviation

Ten-year-old Pat Duggin had a backyard seat for what he describes as free fireworks from Cape Canaveral. The son of an Air Force chief master sergeant, he has vivid memories of seeing the night sky burst into light with the Pioneer 10 probe heading toward Jupiter aboard an Atlas-Centaur rocket in 1972.

Best of the Space Coast 2024

Every year, we turn to the Space Coast community to vote for their favorite businesses to be named the Best of the Space Coast. We are happy to feature the winners who earned the “Best” in their categories.

Honorable Mission

Visitors to the Space Coast are familiar with the beauty of its coast and the wonder of its space program. But a true place of honor in Brevard County is near the small, mainland town of Mims: Cape Canaveral National Cemetery, the final resting place for thousands of veterans....
