What Bert Has To Say About Palm Bay-Melbourne-Titusville Metro Area

Palm Bay, Melbourne, and Titusville anchor a large and complex area of barrier islands, beach and coastal communities comprising what is known as the “Space Coast.” Cape Canaveral and the John F. Kennedy Space Center are located on the northernmost large barrier islands, adding considerable interest and economic benefit to the area. There are fine beaches on these islands, while the coast cities tend to carry most of the commercial, residential, and agricultural activity. Driven in part by the NASA facilities, there are a number of high tech firms in the area. The more family-oriented Palm Bay is the most populous of the three.
