A few miles farther and you'll reach the Atlantic Ocean and picture-perfect Cocoa Beach at Route A1A.In the early 1960s Cocoa Beach was a sleepy, little-known town. But in 1965 the sitcom <i>I Dream of Jeannie</i> premiered. The endearing show centered on an astronaut, played by Larry Hagman, and his "Jeannie" in a bottle, Barbara Eden, and was set in Cocoa Beach. Though the series was never shot in Florida, creator Sidney Sheldon paid homage to the town with local references to Cape Kennedy (now known as the Kennedy Space Center) and Bernard's Surf restaurant. Today the town and its lovely beach are mecca to Florida's surfing community. Explore
