Thank you for the replies!
I love the idea of watching the fireworks on the beach, especially from a balcony. I was looking at LaQuinta on Cocoa Beach. It is kind of spendy so I just want to make sure this is the best location. The recommended hotels on Cocoa Beach seems to be the “newer” hotels closer to the port. Radisson, springhill, home2home ect. Wondering if it is better to be in these areas and uber/walk somewhere. As we will be there for 2 days.
seaworld hotels are another great idea. Neither of those hotels have balconies, but being by the pool might be great as well.
