Reasons Why You Should Live on the Space Coast

Aside from the beautiful beaches and perfect weather, did you know the Space Coast has the most concentrated high-tech economy in the entire state and is ranked 16th in the nation?  Thanks to Boeing, DRS, General Electric, Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman and Rockwell Collins, to name a few, we have almost 50 engineers per 1,000 workers.  Source:  Space Coast EDC

While the shuttle program may be on its way out, Florida’s Space Coast is actively recruiting new business throughout Brevard County.  Economic development leaders are concentrating on companies focused on “green” technologies, homeland security and defense along with aviation and aerospace.  These efforts will help bring new high-wage jobs to the area as well as funding to the aerospace industry.  Source:  Business

You will never run out of new things to see and explore on Florida’s Space Coast.  One of the many attractions is the Kennedy Space Center where visitors can learn about International Space Station and see what it would be like in space.  The Space Coast is also home to the original Ron Jon Surf Shop.  Here you can start your surfing career and learn to ride the east coast waves.  If the beach is not for you check out our Brevard Zoo where you can interact with the animals and take a relaxing kayak ride through the park.  Source:
