Brevard County is
located in the state of
Florida, along the coast
of the Atlantic Ocean.
As of 2010 the U.S.
Cenus Bureau estimates,
the population as 543,376 making it the 10th most populous county in the state. The median household income at $45,683. The home ownership rate at 76.2% with 268,801 housing units.
The county has a total area of 1,556.95 square miles , of which 1,018.19 square miles is land and 538.76 square miles is water, primarily the Atlantic Ocean, the St Johns River and the Indian River Lagoon.
We are located halfway between Jacksonville and Miami. The county is an extra-long county, extending over 70 miles from north to south, but only a handful of miles inland from the seacoast at any point.
There are more than 200 parks, 3 campgrounds, and 6 public golf courses in the county are managed by local government agencies. Offering residents and visitors a range of leisure opportunities, the parks include athletic complexes, community centers, aquatic centers, nature centers, trails, conservation areas, beach parks, historic sites, and boating and fishing access to lakes, the Indian River Lagoon and the St. Johns River. There is even a Dog Beach in Indian Harbor Beach. This is my dog Cooper, enjoying a day at the beach.
The Washington Nationals hold their spring training at Space coast Stadium in Viera. They play about 14 games against other professional teams locally in March as part of the "Grapefruit" League.
Because of the influence by the presence of the Kennedy Space Center Brevard County is also affectionately known as the Space Coast. As such it was designated with the area code 321 as in 3-2-1 liftoff. We were very saddened by the end of the Space Shuttle Program, but optimistic about the new programs.
Brevard county is a great place to live. We have beautiful beaches and rivers with dolphins and manatees. We have great shopping and great restaurants. We are a fairly short drive to Orlando and all of it's attractions. We have it all.
I have lived in Brevard County for twenty one years now, and I wouldn't want to live anywhere else.
