Melbourne is one of the most beautiful areas of the space coast. Gorgeous sunrises and sunsets. Terrific restaurants and lots to see and do.
Melbourne is a beach town, located equidistant between Jacksonville to the north and Miami to the south. It has a quaint old town, beautiful beaches, the Indian River Lagoon, shopping malls, great restaurants, and courteous people (for the most part).
Melbourne is a very nice town on the Indian River. Travel across to the barrier island and Melbourne Beach if you want to have a beach day.
What a beautiful place to grow up (or just visit). While it's not a huge tourist town, the beaches sure are beautiful and there is a lot more to do than people give credit. Only about 45 minutes from Orlando.
