Titusville vacation rentals

Titusville offers nature parks and laid-back living

The small and relaxed sun-washed city of Titusville is located on the banks of the glimmering Indian River in central Florida. Titusville's vacation rentals include simple family homes with outdoor pools, historic Spanish revival houses, and luxury riverfront retreats perfect for romantic escapes. Titusville itself is chock-full of cultural attractions, and has a rich heritage related to NASA's space program. Nature enthusiasts will fall for Titusville as it is surrounded by vast wildlife areas, preserves, and national parks.

Splurge in Titusville's shops or hit the fairways

Shopping is a popular pastime in downtown Titusville _ just make your way to the city center, which faces out onto the wide waters of the Indian River, and you'll discover shopping centers, sports-gear stores, art supply shops, and quaint clothing boutiques. If shopping's not your bag, how about a round of golf? A smattering of 18-hole golf courses and country clubs surround the city, many offering peaceful and idyllic tree-blanketed grounds. Outdoor enthusiasts eager to explore the Florida wilderness can venture out from their Titusville vacation rentals to the hiking trails of nearby Canaveral Marshes.

Titusville's space-age heritage provides family fun

Experience some unique American history at the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex, just southeast of central Titusville, on Merritt Island. The complex lies adjacent to the Kennedy Space Center itself _ the launchpad for many US rockets. In the complex, kids will love the IMAX theaters, simulated space shuttle rides, and the real-life rockets and spacecraft. Back in Titusville, learn about the foundation of the city at the charming North Brevard Historical Society and Museum, a small downtown low-rise showcasing Titusville-related photographs and artefacts, dating back to the early 1800s.

Spring and fall bring fine temperatures to Titusville

Like much of central Florida, Titusville experiences a hot humid subtropical climate. The peak summer months _ from June through September _ see temperatures soar into the low and mid 90s, with high humidity, and lots of tropical rainfall. As such, it's best to book a Titusville vacation rental either side of the summer season when the temperatures hover around the high 70s and mid 80s, there's less rainfall, and the enlivening Florida sunshine pours across the city and surrounding wilderness uninhibited.

Marshland and pristine beachfront near Titusville

Merritt Island lies to the east of Titusville, on the other side of the Indian River. As well as the Kennedy Space Center, the northern end of Merritt Island hosts the Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge, dune-framed marshland full of sea turtles, American alligators, bobcats, and bald eagles. A little further north leads to the Canaveral National Seashore, located on a barrier island, which consists of 25 miles of unblemished, protected beachfront. Southwest of Titusville, you'll find the sprawling St. Johns National Wildlife Refuge _ home to endangered birdlife _ where hiking trails twist and twirl through untamed marshland.
