Port St. John, FL
Port St. John, Florida is an unincorporated area of Cocoa, Florida located on the Space Coast, in Brevard County between the cities of Titusville (north) and Cocoa (south). It is west of the Indian River and east of the St. Johns River. It's 40 minutes to Orlando and 11 miles away from the area's most beautiful beaches near Port Canaveral. Kennedy Space Center is across the Indian River Lagoon. NASA launch information HERE.
The area supports many residents, organizations, clubs, and local businesses. It has three fire stations, urgent care and a local hospital, gas stations, retail centers, great restaurants, banks, many types of churches, and A-rated schools, and VPK (state funded voluntary program) at many area preschools.

There is a community pool at the Woods of Port St. John, Port St. John Community Center, River's Edge Event Center, and many area county parks to choose from.
There is a county boat launch with two slips on the Indian River.
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 is the Cape Canaveral Plant, and the other is Orlando Utilities.
Space Coast Flea Market who hosts vendors all week long.
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.
The nearby airport 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! Happenings produces a monthly publication in the same name that is distributed to area residents and surrounding areas. Click on the link.
