Hurricanes once deterred settlement up until the 1960s, Cocoa Beach, Florida launched into the public eye when President Nixon built NASA’s Kennedy Space Center. Cocoa beach became home to the greatest technical minds, which worked to launch rockets into the unknown space. According to the city website, children raised here during that time were referred to as the “Cape Brats”. NASA’s Kennedy Space Center is located fifteen miles away from Cocoa Beach, yet can be seen from residential areas; launches remain a popular attraction today. Space experts still call this historic city home, along with those looking for a serene location to retire.
Beach galore with three ocean front parks to choose from, Cocoa beach is a prime vacation spot with fabulous beachfront condos available to rent. Family friendly, retirement ready, and tourist attractive, this city is a well-rounded and optimal place to either settle down or just visit. Regardless, everyone should make Cocoa Beach a destination.
Known for their conservative lifestyle, residents take pride in their use of reclaimed water. Better for the environment and highly cost effective, reclaimed water is great for the growing concern for Green living. Storm water is an important part of the process; Maritime Hammock Preserve built a storm water pond that not only looks beautiful, but also provides water treatment to 128 acres. The preserve is a residential hot spot, filled with nature trails where local wild life can be viewed in their natural habitat. Fresh produce and home baked goods can also be enjoyed at the local farmers market, owned and operated by Cocoa Beach residents.
The endless amenities can be enjoyed in the nearly predictable 80-degree weather and sunny skies. Shopping, relaxing, dining, and strolling become even more enjoyable in tropical, vacation weather. Step away from daily stresses and breath in the fresh, ocean air, while lying on the warm, soft beach sand.
