Cocoa Beach was home to Kelly Slater, the world’s most successful surfer ever, so it is a great place to pick up a board and ride the waves.
The well-maintained shores around Cocoa Beach are wonderful for relaxing as well as taking nature walks around the coastline. This quintessential beach town is great for leisure time, with waterspouts and deep-sea fishing both popular.
With beautiful tropical plants and palms lining the beach, it really is a paradise for those who love the sun, sea and sand. It is home to many endangered species, including sea turtles that come to the beach to lay their eggs in the sand.

Andrew Needham, an associate professor of History at New York University who specializes, in part, in the American West, crowdsourced our question to fellow historians (he admitted he doesn’t know much about horse travel). It took two weeks to get from New York City to Chicago by land before rail connection, provided there were good conditions (no mud, snow, etc.).
And then there’s the good ole Pony Express, which delivered letters and packages by horseback from St. Joseph, Missouri, across the Great Plains, Rocky Mountains, and Sierra Nevada, to Sacramento, California (with the help of nearly 200 relay stations where riders exchanged horses). Needham and his colleagues advise that Pony Express riders switched horses approximately every 10 miles and took 10 to 13 days to get from Missouri to Sacramento.
Needham and his colleagues explained that a horse needs to be res hod every four weeks under heavy travel. Today, we're asking equine enthusiasts to calculate how long it takes to traverse the country on horseback.
