BerettaFest 2017 Proposal - Cocoa Beach, Florida!!!

Postby DUBS28 » Wed Jun 08, 2016 9:18 pm

2017 BerettaFest - Cocoa Beach, Florida
Image
Cocoa Beach would be the ultimate destination for BerettaFest 2017! Nestled one hour east of Disney World, an hour and a half south of Daytona, and 3 hours north of Miami it's a less touristy piece of heaven! Don't let that fool you though, Cocoa has plenty of things to offer at much more reasonable prices. Check out these two videos to get a better idea.

I just happened to be in Cocoa Beach on vacation last year and I was surprised how reasonable the nice hotels were that were right on the beach..

Cocoa is nice. Roadtripped there with about a decade between the visits.
Has changed a lot from the early times up until now. Nothing majorly negative to note. Places seemed to routinely keep updated with there buildings. Technology is what it is.

Went to Cocoa Beach for part of our honeymoon. It was pretty decent. The water is really murky though, watch out for those bull sharks!

Murky water? Not sure when you were here but I've never seen Murky water here. Sometimes there is an abundance of seaweed but that's about it. I usually go to the beach at least once a week.
