Historic Cocoa Village Playhouse

Established as the "Aladdin" theatre, the doors opened to the public on August 18th, 1924, showing silent movies. Later, Brevard's first "talkie" movie house became known as "the showplace of the Indian River Section". Several owners and several decades later, the building was restored operational and began producing community based musicals in 1989. In 1991, the Playhouse was accepted onto the National Register of Historic Places under the official name "The Historic Cocoa Village Playhouse." Known to all as "Broadway on Brevard" this team of volunteers and staff are truly an example of one of the highest quality community highest quality community theatres in the country.

I have been to this venue several times over the past few years and have never been disappointed. The restored playhouse is just beautiful. The seats are comfortable. The view of the stage, whether in the balcony or in the lower level is all good. The staff, orchestra and actors/actresses – all volunteers – put their heart and soul into each production to ensure that the patrons have a wonderful evening.

Our group of three arrived early enough to procure a parking space in one of the public parking lots not too far from the venue. But parking could become more challenging, as it gets closer to show time. We saw Mary Poppins and found the show to be very good, although I did have problems at times understanding the dialogue through the sound system. It didn’t take away from the performance for me though.

If you’re looking for a nice evening out to take in a play, I strongly recommend you give the Cocoa Village Playhouse a try, if you’ve never been there before. You can buy tickets in advance on line or at the door on the day of the show.

Pineda Inn Bar & Grill

Reviewed By Dmlsun

We went in to redeem a certificate on a Wed late afternoon. We had been to the outdoor patio previously via a boat and had drinks, but never eaten in the restaurant. We bought a Groupon certificate and went into redeem in the restaurant.

We were very surprised that the food and service greatly exceeded our expectations! Betty was an awesome server and the food (fried. Cod, fried shrimp and conch fritters) was great. We loved the batter, crispy and light. Amberbock beer was happy hour price of $1.75/pint. Overall we were very happy and definitely will return and recommend to friends!

Cocoa Village

Reviewed By Scene-set - Wokingham, United Kingdom

A great place to “park up” and take a stroll. Some lovely historic buildings including the theatre,

Sadly could not find (after a thorough search) a coffee shop, which would be a great addition and I am sure a successful enterprise!

Still would recommend a visit - including the park which fronts the river, which is beautifully maintained.

Helen and Allan Cruickshank Sanctuary

Reviewed By Aieeejo - Central Florida

Nice, hidden nature walk/park. Thank you Cruickshank Family!
Basically it's "just" a 30-45 walking trail around an undeveloped, central Florida lot, but what a treat! On any given day you'll see lots of different types of wildlife, and if you stand still long enough, you may get a visit (on top of your head, or an outstretched arm) by a scrub jay or two. Keep the cameras handy! There are also lots of picturesque trees and trail/scrub brush views. It's a very pleasant and calming way to spend an hour of your day!

Turtle Creek Golf Club

Voted as one of the "Places to Play" by Golf Digest Magazine.

Reviewed By Merritt47 - Cocoa, Florida

I've played golf here several times and found the course to be narrow and challenging. I was a little disappointed this time because the course is in fair shape. The fairways need repair. The greens were ok. It was very slow, took us five hours. In my opinion, they started groups too close to each other. On some holes there were three groups waiting to tee off. I would definitely play here again.

Chanced upon this compact little park while walking around the old village. Very well maintained with shady walkways and seating, bandstand and kids play area. Fronts on to the river with pathways along and around the park - looked like a place where locals frequent!

Viera East Golf Club

Reviewed By Gary A - The Villages, Florida

Our foursome, all playing here for the 1st time had nothing but good comments following our round. The course was in great shape, offers an excellent diversity of holes and challenges - yet wasn't frustrating to the beginner in our group. We played on a real windy day, so had some struggles with club selection and keeping it in the short grass; but still had a lot of fun. The greens were in fine shape, much better than other courses we've played lately. Fairways, tees, bunkers and rough all above par for a course at this price point. No complaints at all with pace of play on a full course. Clubhouse and facilities all clean and in swell condition. Courteous & helpful staff. Finally, excellent golf carts with GPS and allowed to drive into parking lot to load/unload bags & gear; we love this, so big bonus points! We highly recommend & will be going back - especially if they keep the costs down.
