Many notable people past and present have called Melbourne home, including Cecil Fielder, Jim Morrison, Kate Upton and more. It is the second largest city in Brevard, with just over 77,000 residents. Located approximately 60 miles southeast of Orlando, midway between Jacksonville and Miami, the city encompasses just under 40 square miles, mostly on the mainland. A small portion of the city is located just over the Eau Gallie Causeway on the barrier island.
Melbourne has an international airport, numerous hospitals and medical centers, and tons of parks and recreational areas (like Ballard Park, shown at left). It also has a zoo, a symphony orchestra, an active art scene – especially in the Eau Gallie Art District – and is home to a handful of colleges and universities. Brevard County School District runs more than a dozen elementary to high schools in the city.
While it is a bustling city, you can find everything from country estates within the city limits, to lake-front and river-front homes, to quiet single-family home neighborhoods, condos and more. Find your Melbourne home today!
