I’m in Melbourne, and it’s a great city. Good schools, near water, etc. like someone mentioned before, Mikey Botti comes here for tuning often. Hour away from Orlando, 2.5hr from jax (I’m from jax) 1.5hr from west palm (not to mention boca and Juno beach on the way) Houses 250-600k range. Not much traffic at all but the town is growing. Viera is also growing quick but more expensive for what you can get in Melbourne. There’s a few supras here 👍🏻

I'm planning a short trip there the weekend of June 29th to take a look at a few of this places. It has been a while that I have been to anything between Jax and Orlando.

I'm located in Viera, and I can agree on that. I luckily rented an apartment for a decent price, but prices are going up like CRAZY. A bit overpriced in my opinion, but pretty nice overall.

There's the Space Coast Cars & Coffee in Viera, the second Sunday of each month, as well as Coastal Auto Rally & Show. Any of you go to those events?

Orlando's really nice. I moved from Orlando to Melbourne, and damn do I miss Orlando. At first I thought I wasn't going to miss it, but man I miss it like crazy!

Overall, Melbourne is pretty nice. Palm Bay is sort-of nice, depending on which area; same goes for Rockledge (They both have some sketchy areas). Viera in my opinion is the nicest, but one of the most expensive. Some very nice advantages to Viera is that you're a bit less than an hour away from Orlando, it's very safe, you're less than 10 minutes from the Coast and it's a master planned city, so you're going to see a lot of nice developments/growth.

I’m in the Naples/Ft. Myers area and love it! But since you’re looking for East coast FL, you can’t go wrong with any of the places already mentioned. Orlando is the biggest and Palm Coast would be the smallest. I’d say they have the usual stereotypes of any big or small sized city, depending on what you’re looking for. I’ve lived in Tampa and Miami and never want to be near anything that huge again. But that’s definitely a personal preference 😉 Just drive around and pick what makes your wife the happiest 😂 That’s always made my life easier = happier!! Also, Sebring, Daytona, Homestead and PBIR won't be far if planning on doing any tracking. Lots of options here for that.

Melbourne/ Merrit Island, our family is finishing our home there right now as a weekend/ summer getaway from Fort Lauderdale. Great area, real estate is getting pricey but still not terrible. we have water on both sides, ocean access is 20 min away. Great fishing. Safe area, fairly republican if that matters.
Lots of republicans/conservatives here in SWFL too! St. Pete/Orlando/Miami (Broward/Dade) are our most liberal. Regardless, it's a really great state. Probably why so many people are flocking here.

I've got to one of the SPC&C and to a Coastal Auto Rally & Show at the airport in Titusville. I will go to more just out of town a lot as well. That's why I missed the one in Cocoa Village.
