Location: Palm bay is located in Central Florida on the Atlantic Coast, in what is called the Space Coast and considered a high-tech corridor. The City of Palm Bay is both vibrant and diverse and home to more than 100,000 residents and has many wonderful features for young single professionals, growing families, or professionals planning for future retirement. The Space Coast is full of natural beauty and outdoor adventures, from Turkey Creek to the Indian River Lagoon, residents are close by beautiful waterways and hiking, while also being less than twenty minutes from the ocean. Residents are close to surrounding outdoor attractions like airboat rides along the St. John's River, snorkeling with the manatees in one of our natural springs, evening beach walk to watch sea turtles' nest, kayaking down Turkey Creek, world class golf courses and more. The area also hosts other attractions like Melbourne's historic downtown shopping district and farmers market, fine dining, Kennedy Space Center a rocket launches, and Cape Canaveral's cruise terminals. Palm Bay is only a few hours from major cities like Miami, an hour away from the theme parks in Orlando, and close to famous beaches like Cocoa Beach. It is a great place to live at a slower pace and reasonable cost of living, but wherever you look there is a lot to do.
