Titusville’s Bicyclists & Boaters Friendly Business Program
The City of Titusville is strategically located at the convergence of three (3) major trails, the Coast to Coast Trail; the St. Johns to Sea Loop Trail; and the East Coast Greenway Trail. The City is also situated on the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway, on which many people come to kayak and on which the City has a full service marina with transient dockage. The trails and waterway bring potential customers into Titusville, many of which come from some distance. The dollars they bring can be significant.
In order to capitalize on the bicycle and boat tourists visiting downtown Titusville, local downtown businesses can take steps to attract these visitors by being bicyclist and boater friendly. To assist downtown Titusville businesses in this endeavor, the City of Titusville Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA) has created a “Bicyclists & Boaters Business Friendly Program”.
