Our neighborhood:

The neighborhood is very Americana with huge oak trees canopying the streets.  Very quiet and safe.  Most mornings and evenings you'll see the neighbors out walking their dogs.  Close to shopping and restaurants in Historic Eau Gallie, Downtown Melbourne or beachside.  Brevard Art Museum is only 2 miles away also located in Historic Eau Gallie. 

Only 6 miles to the Atlantic Ocean/beaches along famous A1A.  Also, Banana River is only 2 miles away if you'd like to enjoy sailing or fishing.  Lots of marinas where you can rent boats, jetskis, waverunners, etc., or take an airboat ride to see the alligators!

Cape Canaveral/Kennedy Space Center where NASA rockets and space shuttles are launched is only a 30 min. away.  Have you ever imagined yourself at the controls of the Space Shuttle? Feeling the g-forces of space flight? Or preparing for a launch? The Astronaut Training Experience at Kennedy Space Center immerses you in the world of today's Astronauts - an exciting combination of hands-on training and preparation for the rigors of space flight. Veteran NASA Astronauts helped design the program, and you'll hear first-hand from them as you progress through an exciting day of mission simulation and exploration of the busiest launch facility on Earth.

Orlando, which offers many amusement parks like Disney World, Universal Studios with the new Harry Potter World of Wizards attraction, and water parks is only 1.5 hr drive.

If you are interested in car racing, Daytona International Speedway the World Center of Racing is only an hour's drive.  There you can tour the racetrack & facilities, watch a race, and even experience the 31 degrees of the historic 2.5-mile Daytona International Speedway and real-life racing thrills by riding shotgun in a two-seat authentic NASCAR-stock car driven by a professional instructor for a simulated three-lap NASCAR qualifying run at speeds exceeding 160 MPH.

Melbourne is a GREAT central location for EVERYTHING!!
