As with many coastal Florida cities, outdoor activities and water attractions are plentiful in the area. Swimming, fishing, paddle boarding, kayaking, cycling, golf, hiking and nature exploration are some of the great activities Palm Bay has to offer. There are thirty parks in the community, five of which offer free manatee watching, and all of which are beautiful places to relax and enjoy the beautiful local terrain. Nearby Melbourne extends the fun with attractions such as Andretti Thrill Park and the exotic Brevard Zoo, home to the Treetop Trek obstacle course complete with zip lines that allow you to explore the zoo from a bird's eye view. If you enjoy artistic endeavors, there is The King Center for the Performing Arts, which offers performances year round with special productions for children.
