Another plus for Brevard County is that it just a short day trip over to the Orlando area which of course is known as the vacation capital of the world with attractions such as Disney World, Universal Studios, professional sports teams such as the Orlando Magic and one of the largest convention complexes in the world.
With all there is available in Central Florida you are literally less than a days drive to almost anything you can imagine.
People are attracted to Brevard County real estate and Brevard County because of it’s abundant recreational, employment and entertainment opportunities while it still maintains a somewhat smaller community feel. Even thought we are within an hours drive of a major city, Brevard County isn’t at all like a large metropolis such as Orlando. Many small communities dot the landscape of Brevard giving it a still small town feel wherever you go.
Brevard County is large in size, some 70 miles in length, encompasses 1,018 square miles and because of our barrier islands, we enjoy 230 miles of coastline. But, while we have lots of land, our population is less than half that of Orange County (100 square miles less than Brevard County) which contains the Orlando metro area.
So, that’s what makes Brevard County real estate such a bargain. I’m sure you will enjoy living here!
