Port St. John, Florida is located on the Space Coast of Florida, between the cities of Titusville (north) and Cocoa (south). It is west of the Indian River and east of the St. Johns River. It is an unincorporated part of Cocoa.
The area supports many residents, organizations, and businesses. It has three fire stations, urgent care and a hospital, gas stations, retail centers, great restaurants, banks, many types of churches, and A-rated schools.
There is a community pool, community center, and many county parks to choose from that offer activities.
There is a county boat launch with two slips.
You can watch manatees, fish, horseshoe crabs, and birds, or try your luck fishing in the world famous Indian River Lagoon, home of some of the best fishing in the world. There are two power plants in the area. One of which is the Cape Canaveral Plant, and the other is Orlando Utilities.
At the front of the port you can see spectators line up for the many launches at Kennedy Space Center, which is located directly across the river. Residents usually don't have to go far to watch from their homes. They tell tales of the "rumble" and the "shaking" of the windows during liftoff. It's quite a spectacle from the ground, but it's really exciting to see a nighttime launch! The sky lights up like it's daytime and you can see the clouds brighten as the spacecraft arcs away in seconds. Debris from the launches has never had a direct impact on Port St. John or the Indian River Lagoon.
There is a nearby airport that sponsors the Warbird Air Show every March. Hundreds of spectators come to see the vintage planes, along with jets, doing lots of stunts. There's something for the whole family at the annual firework display sponsored by Happenings, Inc. who produces a monthly publication in the same name that is distributed to area residents and surrounding areas.
