Merritt Island Neighborhoods

A barrier island surrounded by the Indian and Banana Rivers, Merritt Island serves as the home of NASA’s Kennedy Space Center and the Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge, a 140,000-acre nature sanctuary. The Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex is a great attraction where you can meet an astronaut, enjoy the automated thrills of the Shuttle Launch Experience and explore other interactive displays. The Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge is a seven-mile self-guided tour of impounded marshes, a visitor center, four hiking trails, and the historic Haulover Canal. Enjoy kayaking tours of some of the wading bird islands!
