Where is the Space Coast located in Florida?

April 25, 2012 | 0 Comments

If you are searching for apartments in Melbourne-Titusville-Palm Bay, you are looking at living on Florida’s "Space Coast." This region of the state got this particular nickname because it is near the Kennedy Space Center–the spot where NASA launches its space shuttles and rockets. This area boasts many other attractions as well, including the Police Hall of Fame, Valiant Air Command Warbird Museum, Enchanted Forest Sanctuary and many "shuttle viewing sites" lined up right along the coast.

Titusville has a population of over 40,000 people and it is the closest city of the three to Kennedy Space Center. Melbourne, nicknamed "The Harbor City," is a bit farther down the coast. It has a population of approximately 78,000 people. Palm Bay is to the south of Melbourne, and it has 29 parks, two golf courses and an aquatic center. Each of these towns has a unique atmosphere, and they are all easy places to find good rental property at a reasonable price.
