Also known as Florida’s Space Coast, Melbourne attracts visitors with its beautiful beaches, water sports and proximity to Kennedy Space Center and Cape Canaveral. Beyond its out-of-this-world calling card, though, Melbourne has plenty to offer. From breathtaking coastal sights, plenty of natural landscapes and wildlife galore, not to mention shopping, dining and events throughout the year, visitors find plenty of reasons to visit Melbourne year after year.
Without a doubt, the beaches that line the city are one of the top reasons to visit Melbourne. Cool, tropical breezes welcome visitors seeking to soak up the sun with the sand between their toes and the Atlantic Ocean sweeping out as far as the eye can see.
Those who can bring themselves to leave the beach will find plenty to explore away from the water. The Brevard Symphony Orchestra is the county’s sole professional orchestra, performing at the King Center regularly. Art and history are on display at the Foosaner Art Museum and Liberty Bell Memorial Museum, while the Big Mansion delights with both historic Victorian architecture and Florida-inspired cuisine.
Another draw, especially for those with the family in tow, is the Brevard Zoo of Melbourne, where more than 400 animals of more than 100 species live.
Other tourist activities include golfing, airboating and safaris, particularly at Forever Florida. The bustling city centre area is also a comfortable spot for tourists to retreat to, with plenty of restaurants, shopping and nightlife options right on the beach.
The local bus service is the best and cheapest way to get around the city. The bus goes to almost all places of interest and major attractions. As with most U.S. destinations, Melbourne is also most conveniently explored by car. Rentals are available at the airport and in town.
Getting from the Airport to the City
Melbourne International Airport (MLB) is the closest airport to the city, about 1.5 miles northwest of the city centre. A variety of options connect travellers to Melbourne. The public bus system serves the airport, while shuttles, town cars and limousines can also be arranged at the airport. Numerous taxi companies also service the airport, and meters should be used.
