Melbourne Florida is located on Florida’s Space Coast in south Brevard County. It is Brevard County’s largest city with a population of just over 75,000.
We are blessed with terrific weather here in Melbourne as we get approximately 300 days of sunshine a year. That’s why so many people choose to move to this part of Florida every year.
The Melbourne Florida area along with Brevard County was voted the 4th best place to retire in the United States and 1st in Florida recently by author David Savageau in Retirement Places Rated.
What makes the Melbourne area such a great place to live? Well, we have sort of a small town feel here in Melbourne, yet we have many of the conveniences and amenities of a much larger city.
One of the top entertainment amenities available in the Melbourne area is the King Center. The King Center is a top notch entertainment venue with some of the biggest names in the music and entertainment worlds. Some of the scheduled shows coming up this year include Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons, Ed McMahon, The Moody Blues, James Taylor, The Manhattan Transfer and many many more.
The weather in Melbourne Florida as I mentioned earlier is usually very nice but when it gets a bit hot and humid here in July and August it’s time to head to the water and cool off. We have plenty of watersports activities available since Melbourne is right on the Indian River and just a short drive across the Melbourne Causeway gets you over to Idialantic Beach where you can enjoy everything the sand and surf has to offer most of the year.
One of the biggest events in Melbourne and the one that has put us on the map is the annual Melbourne Art Festival. The Melbourne Art Festival has been voted one of the top 25 art festivals in the nation and bring 250 artists and upwards of 60,000 attendees for the 3 day event. You don’t want to miss this one of a kind show in Melbourne.
