The library is staffed full time with a certified genealogist available for consultation. This collection specializes in the states east of the Mississippi, with an emphasis on Virginia, Pennsylvania, New England, military records and the southern states. Two extensive ancestry databases are available only at the Central Brevard Library and Reference Center, Melbourne Public Library and Titusville Public Library, including one with more than 1.2 billion records that are only accessible in the Genealogical Collection at the Central Library in Cocoa.

BY MARIA SONNENBERG Second, only to the Port of Miami as the busiest cruise ship port in the world, Port Canaveral, the port in Brevard County’s backyard, also is a destination in itself. With a relaxed beachside vibe, plentiful close-to-the-ship parking, easy access to airports in Melbourne and Orlando and state-of-the-art facilities, it is no wonder Port Canaveral is such a visitor magnet. Nearly five million passengers use the port as the threshold to a vacation on the water. Locals love it for its entertainment scene, which includes a plethora of restaurants, shops and activities. Busy Port Canaveral also is an important working port that delivers goods to more than 58 million people in the Southeast, as well as to markets in the Americas, the Caribbean, Africa and Europe. For Florida-bound tourists, Port Canaveral can add the extra dimension of a Caribbean destination combined with a Florida vacation to the Orlando theme parks and the nearby Kennedy Space Center. Carnival, Disney, Norwegian and Royal Caribbean cruise lines offer trips that range from threeday long weekend trips to 14-day cruises. Twice a day, visitors also can sail to nowhere as they try their luck with a Victory Casino cruise. This summer, the opening of Cruise

Terminal 3, which is designed to accommodate mega cruise ships, will be the new home for the largest vessels in Carnival Cruise Line’s fleet. With more recreational facilities than all other Florida ports combined, Port Canaveral boasts the seven-story Exploration Tower with exhibitions and observation decks. It also has the Cove, a harborside dining and retail area that includes charter boats, lounges, shops and restaurants featuring abundant outdoor seating for cruise ship watching. The day’s catch goes straight from fishing boat to restaurant kitchen, making Port Canaveral a seafood lover’s dream.

add more boat ramps and picnic facilities, plus viewing areas for manatees and other wildlife.

For those not into seafood, the port obliges with plenty of dining options from steaks to fried gator bites. Later in the evening, the party gets going with disc jockeys, live bands, dancing and karaoke.

No other port in the world can offer rocket launches, beaches, special events, gaming, fishing excursions, shopping, dancing and dining in a destination with hassle-free access. In naming Port Canaveral the Best Cruise Homeport in the U.S., online cruise blogging site Cruise Hive cited the port’s popularity and excellent facilities.

Five-acre Jetty Park, part of the Port complex, offers a campground, fishing pier, boat ramps, picnic areas and a food concession pavilion. Freddie Patrick and Rodney S. Ketcham parks

“The Port has long been popular on our site and readers enjoy the experience and cruise ship itineraries that are available,� said Cruise Hive founder Emrys Thakkar.

72 Brevard is

miles of paradise Do you have all the special friends and family members surrounding you that you would like to have? Why not send your folks from the North a copy of the 2020 Boomer Guide as a subtle hint that it’s time to move to Florida and get started living right.

KENNEDY SPACE CENTER

CAPE CANAVERAL AIR STATION

Living right means choosing a place to live that is low or no maintenance. It’s time to let others mow the grass and clear plugged toilets. The Space Coast is the perfect place to enjoy what used to be our Golden Years. These days, boomers have no interest in going quietly into their retirement years, and don’t call them senior citizens, even if they have reached the magical Medicare age. To keep our bodies healthy and functional through our last vibrant breath, more doctors, specialists, surgeons and other healthcare providers set up shop each year to target mature lifestyles. The Space Coast has the best medical community in existence, many providing services within the walls of carefree communities, with a plan for aging in place so you never have to relocate again. Listing information changes from time to time. If you have a change or notice a wrong number, call us at 321-242-1235 and we will change it in our database and in our next issue. For more copies of the Boomer Guide, call 321-242-1235.

BE ON THE LOOKOUT: SAFEGUARD YOUR IDENTITY – Identity theft can lead to serious problems with your credit, retirement benefits, taxes and finances. Identity thieves often target senior citizens. Never give your private information to anyone you do not know. REPORT MEDICARE FRAUD – Some estimate that Medicare fraud costs taxpayers upwards of $60 billion a year. Medicare fraud wrongfully steals from senior citizens, but we can’t stop it if it’s not reported. If you need help dealing with Medicare fraud issues, please contact my office.
