Palm Bay vacation rentals

Discover picture-perfect Palm Bay

A firm favorite on Florida's Space Coast, Palm Bay is a popular destination for breaks with families, friends, or both. Enjoy a relaxed pace as you settle in for a day on the sand, explore the tranquil Turkey Creek Sanctuary, or take a scenic drive along the coast to the Kennedy Space Center. Whether you plan to soak up the local sights or spread your wings a little further to visit area attractions, Palm Bay vacation rentals provide a great base for your stay. You'll find many rentals come with a pool and are within sauntering distance of the beach.

Live the outdoor life in Palm Bay

Vacations here are all about the great outdoors but the pace is always up to you. Take in the sweeping ocean views as you enjoy a spot of lunch at a waterfront caf_ or grab a spot on a guided kayaking eco-tour in the Indian River Lagoon. Either way, spotting gentle manatees is always a possibility. If you've brought the kids, they'll love spending the afternoon whizzing down the slides at the Palm Bay Aquatic Center while you squeeze in some laps. Enjoying an evening stroll through Castaways Point Park can be a lovely way to round off the day.

Palm Bay offers easy access to Florida attractions

If you're up for exploring a little further afield, you'll find all manner of attractions within a reasonable distance of Palm Bay vacation rentals. Kennedy Space Center, just an hour's drive away, offers a fascinating experience for the whole family. You'd have to plan your visit carefully to catch a rocket launch but captivating experiences such as shuttle launch simulators are available all year round. Swap space for spells at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios Florida, and don't forget to pick up your own wand from the recreated Diagon Alley.

Visit Palm Bay in spring or fall

The best time to visit Palm Bay is often found to be around April and May. Spring is far more comfortable than the high humidity, crowds, and almost daily thunderstorms served up in summer. You'll also likely find that air fares are lower and that you can score a great deal on your Palm Bay vacation rental. The fall months of September and October are also an option, although you may find yourself battening down the hatches if a hurricane finds land. The snowbirds start arriving from November and rates for rentals will rise accordingly.

Find glorious landscapes in and around Palm Bay

Beaches are easy to come by along the Florida coastline but with almost 30 parks in Palm Bay, finding a green space won't prove too tricky either. Turkey Creek Sanctuary is one of the city's most popular spots and one where hiking, kayaking, and wildlife watching are all on the cards. Outside the city limits, St Sebastian River Preserve State Park has over 20,000 acres of wilderness, providing the perfect backdrop for birdwatching, photography, and horseback riding. Fishing charters in the nearby Sebastian Inlet are available for those wanting to reel in sailfish and wahoo.
