Brevard Zoo is located in east...
Brevard Zoo is located in east central Florida,a short
one hour drive from Orlando, and just east of Interstate 95 off exit 73. The Zoo sits 25 minutes from Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex and 15 minutes from the beaches of Florida's Atlantic coast.
We went to Cocoa Beach on a coach trip from our hotel. It wasn`t a bad journey as the roads were mainly straight, but it was a little bit too long for me. There was a video shown on board, although I missed a lot of it as I kept falling asleep.

Not much public transport
I recommend having a rental car while in the Cocoa Beach area.
Public transport is pretty much non-existent except for SCAT which runs on a very limited schedule. Rob tried to use it and I think I remember that they didn't even stick to their schedules. The web link is below anyways if you choose to give it a try.

Island Boat Outings
As we drove across the causeway we noticed a marina and thought we would stop to see what charters were available. At Sunset's Waterfront Bar & Cafe we found the pier that leads down to the boat charter dock. Someone from Massechusettes said hello to us and began a conversation, and before her guy could say anything, he recognized the boat captain as someone he knew from and earlier time in his life, and sauntered down the pier to say hello. He and his wife were offered a free late afternoon outing, and we checked out the tours and prices before we continued on to Cocoa Beach, which was our priority this day.
Cocoa Beach to Orlando

Just 35 miles east of Orlando, you'll find 72 miles of pristine Atlantic beaches known as Florida's Space Coast. Along this impressive stretch of coastline, unspoiled nature preserves exist in perfect harmony with the space-age attractions of Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex, Port Canaveral and the U.S. Astronaut Hall of Fame.
