Brevard County is conveniently located east of Orlando on Florida’s Atlantic coast. The county boasts over 70 miles of gorgeous coastline, tranquil waterways, and warm weather year-round. Florida’s Space Coast is home to the historic Cape Canaveral, Kennedy Space Center, and other sites that continue to play a role in the country’s space program. Brevard County is also experiencing an economic boom as skyrocketing job numbers and living standards propel the county’s future into the stratosphere.
A Place in History
On July 16, 1969, at 9:32 a.m., millions of people watched as NASA’s Apollo 11 launched from Kennedy Space Center. A few days later, astronauts Neil Armstrong and Edwin “Buzz” Aldrin became the first men on the moon, seizing the greatest prize of the space race and marking a new era of human achievement. The NASA facilities that made this possible will forever hold a place in history, and this year’s 50th anniversary of the moon landing brings with it renewed interest in the people and place that made it all possible.
The (New) Space Race
Space isn’t just a part of Brevard County’s past, it’s a major part of the region’s bright future as well. The future of space exploration looks likely to be dominated by private businesses, and Elon Musk’s SpaceX and Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos’ Blue Origin have already established bases of operation along the Space Coast. In addition to the continued presence of NASA, these private businesses are bringing permanent, high-paying jobs to the region by the thousands.
The talent behind the new space race, and many of the other high-tech jobs popping up in cities like Melbourne, Cocoa Beach, and Titusville, is often homegrown. Brevard County’s public schools are among the best in the entire state, and universities like Florida Institute of Technology provide a local pipeline for employers to develop top talent with roots in the region.
With so much economic activity underway, it’s no wonder that people are pouring into Brevard County from across the country and even around the world.
