Everyone in Florida knows that winters are tough, there's a reason they're all here. If you're getting sick of the snow and you are dreaming of sun bathing on the beach every weekend, here are 4 reasons why it's probably best to move to Brevard County.
Affordability. Brevard’s cost of living is about 12% less than the national average. Take advantage of not paying an income tax. Residents do not pay an income tax because Florida is one of nine states that doesn’t have a state income tax.
Education. Brevard Public Schools continue to uphold a prestigious academic reputation with two elementary schools and two high schools ranking amongst the top ten in the state. If you are pursuing a higher education, Brevard also has several schools to choose from, including Florida Institute of Technology and Eastern Florida State College.
High-Tech Center. The Space Coast is also the high-tech center of the southeast boasting an impressive list of employers in and around the Melbourne area, including Northrop Grumman and Lockheed Martin.
We fire rockets into space. Florida's Space Coast is ground zero for U.S. space exploration. Melbourne is less than an hour drive to two year-round rocket launch sites, the John F. Kennedy Space Center and the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station. Brevard is also known as the Space Coast because of its proximity to Kennedy Space Center. In fact, Brevard’s telephone area code is 321, as in “3-2-1- liftoff!”
The beaches, of course! Some of the best surfing and beach spots are located at Patrick Air Force Base, just south of Cocoa Beach, and a short 35-mile drive from Orlando. Further south, we have beachside towns of Indialantic, Indian Harbor Beach, and Melbourne Beach, offering the laid-back coastal life.
