14 Things You Need To Know Before Moving To Melbourne, FL

 

We are the Space Coast.

Melbourne is right in the heart of Florida’s Space Coast which is ground zero for America’s space programs. You’ll find the whole community gathering together along the coast to watch the beauty of our rocket launches right out of Cape Canaveral. There’s nothing quite like the feeling of the shaking from the rocket breaking through the atmosphere and the rumble that people of the Space Coast long for.

Miles and Miles of Beaches.

Melbourne has some incredibly gorgeous beachfront properties right on the water with endless things to do. This beautiful slice of the sunshine state is very family friendly and boasts some incredible outdoor activities from

You've probably heard us mentioned before as Florida's Space Coast, because Brevard County boasts the biggest space programs in the country, with companies such as Nasa and SpaceX that have their location in Brevard. As a proud resident of Brevard County, I've been watching rockets flying through the atmosphere since I was just a kid! There's a real sense of pride and community around our space programs and a never ceasing awe  every time we all get to see the spectacular launches.

August 8 - Sneak Some Zucchini onto Your Neighbor's Porch Day

As bizarre as this may sound, if you plant a vegetable garden, around about this time your bounty starts to come in.  Experienced gardeners know that Zucchini is one of the most prolific plants in all of the gardening world. A single plant produces a seemingly endless supply of Zucchini.

By the time August arrives, gardeners are reaping far more zucchini than they can possibly use. If you are Italian, as I am, the zucchini is used daily in an untold number of recipes, from soups and stews, to breads and dips. Still, the fruit matures on the vine faster than anyone can even pick it. Zucchini growers become desperate, as they try to give zucchini away to family, friends and everyone

July 29th – National Chicken Wing Day

 

Thank you to the Anchor Bar in Buffalo, New York for the creation of the spicy, crunchy Buffalo Wing.  Up until that time, the poor wings were relegated to soup stock, not much of a claim to fame.  All that changed in 1964, and we (the eating public) are forever grateful.  The genius came in the form of hot sauce.  Since its creation, many variations to the wing recipe have been made.  The selection of sauces are limited only by your imagination. Mild, medium or hot, over 27 billion wings are consumed every year in the United States (have you ever been to a Superbowl Party without Wings??).  For me, the more capsaicin (the heat in the pepper) the better…just follow it up with blue cheese and, of

June 4th, National Cheese Day!

Although there is no information for the creator or origin of this day, do we really need an excuse to eat cheese?  Today, eat cheese with every meal, and try a variety of cheeses you have never tasted before.  I know I plan to do just that!  People around the world love cheeses, and Americans on average consume 31 pounds of cheese a year (Wisconsin and California are the top cheese producing states in the U.S.).  Cheese is produced from pressed curds of milk, and can be made from the milk of cows, goats, sheep and even buffalos.  The flavor and texture of cheeses are influenced by temperature, aging process and spices.  Holding a cheese tasting party is a great way to celebrate National Cheese Day (and don’t

Brevard County, also known as The Space Coast, boasts 72 miles of pristine, uncrowded beaches along barrier islands; with the Atlantic Ocean on one side and the intracoastal waterway on the other.
