Merritt Island serenity at your leisure
If peace and quiet, encased in beautiful landscapes is what you were looking for than Merritt Island is the perfect place for you. This quaint independent town does not have a lot of renters, college students nor families with small children. However the real reason for its softness is that it simply isn’t as populated as most towns are in America. This exquisite island has a lot of nature, including its 140,000 acre National Wildlife Refuge. That doesn’t mean that it’s lacking in excitement. Merritt Island is home to NASA’s Kennedy Space Center and the Center’s Visitor Complex. Here you can meet an astronaut and experience an automated shuttle launch and explore interactive displays. This enchanting island is both beautiful and exciting.
