Spanish explorers named the area Cabo Canareal, Canareal meaning “reed bed” or “sugar plantation”. The Ais Indians occupied the area prior to the arrival of the Spanish. Many sailors shipwrecked in the area due to the swift currents. A hurricane in 1885 swept over the area and discouraged future homestead settlement for many years.
In 1950 Cape Canaveral became a test site for missiles. The first rocket was launched in July of 1950 under the guise of President Harry Truman. In 1963, by executive order, President Lyndon Johnson renamed Cape Canaveral, Cape Kennedy in honor of President John F. Kennedy. The name was changed back to Cape Canaveral in 1963 at the behest of Florida citizens, however the nearby Kennedy Space Center retains the name. For decades, the world has known Cape Canaveral as a Launchpad where one giant leap for mankind began and aerospace and technology were born. Space is as intrinsic to who we are as the warm coastal breezes and waterways that surround this small and unique business community first emerged through aerospace and technology. Today it expands with tech companies, eclectic retail shops and restaurants, outdoor recreation and the second largest cruise port in the country!
