Every month in Rockledge, festivals fill the air with laughter and present entertainment to delight residents of all ages. March is home to the “Wednesday Friendsday” Expo, where local businesses meet to network and make new connections in the community. Grab a blanket and lawn chair in July and take friends and family to the Independence Day Family Picnic. Students eagerly entertain the crowds with singing and dancing and street vendors beckon with tempting foods every Fourth of July. Show your holiday spirit during the December festival Light Up Rockledge. All public buildings become a dazzling display and Santa makes an appearance with Mrs. Claus.
Hot and Cold Activiti
A sunny Florida city might not seem like the place for winter sports, but the Space Coast Iceplex is one hot hit with residents and visitors. One of the few ice skating rinks in the area, the Iceplex offers daily public skating and private lessons. Pro hockey players and figure skaters are among the athletes to see action at the rink. When you are ready to get back out in the heat, Rockledge’s golf courses offer lush, challenging courses. Turtle Creek Golf Club is one of the best "Places to Play" according to Golf Digest magazine.
Flavors to Savor
Few places in this part of Florida offer as much diverse, delicious food as Rockledge does. Start your day off with eggs or frijoles at the Peace in the Garden Cafe, the city’s best breakfast/vegetarian/Mexican place to dine. Fresh Thai in a laid-back, friendly atmosphere is what you will discover at Thai Fuji, with generous portions and chic decor. Baseball fans will find a home run at Jimmies Restaurant. There is plenty of memorabilia on the walls to go with your crispy sweet potato fries and thick, juicy burger. Stop for a sweet smooth treat afterwards at Tropical Smoothie Cafe.
