This is a great place for those you know who love bird watching or just observing animals in general. See manatees, fish, and hunt in certain locations. Boating and paddling are also available. So, bring your camera, and head over to the Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge.
The Island Waterfront
Get a great meal and a great view at the Island Waterfront Bar and Grill. A local favorite, you can enjoy everything from brunch to late-night cocktails at this joint. The Banana River fills your view while you chomp down on ahi tuna, mahi-mahi, and other seafood delights. Patrons love the casual and relaxed atmosphere. It is a great place to come after a long day and just chill out by the water, grab a meal, and spend time with friends. Check out some of the faves like the island burger, pulled pork sandwich, or fish tacos. You will not be disappointed.
