Somewhere in my stuff I think I have "Cocoa Village - The Historic Way" a self guided walking tour by the Brevard Heritage Council. We did some of this tour. But I can't find it now and I can't find anything on the internet either. The best I can do is what is this from Go2orlando.com.
"Local shopkeepers and the City of Cocoa joined forces to re-create the old downtown area as it was years ago. The end result is Olde Cocoa Village, a quaint collection of more than 50 unique shops and eateries along oak-shaded brick sidewalks and cobblestone streets. The Village Playhouse, originally built as a vaudeville theater and later used as a movie house, has been restored and is now used for live productions. The Porcher House, originally the home of citrus grove owners, is open for public tours. The Brevard Museum offers walking tours of the village."

I went to Cocoa Beach, Florida with my Family back in the 1970s. We were visiting good friends of our family. Folks my mom and dad knew from when they first met back at a boarding school in Washington, DC.
Once we stayed at our friends house. Another time they let us stay at their condo, which had a pretty cool cable TV system with video text news and everything.
While we were down there we went to Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida. That was the first time I had ever been there. Not so for our friends, they had been many times and declined the invitation to come with us.
What amazed me about the weather in Cocoa and I guess elsewhere in Florida is that it really likes to ran in the afternoon. For about 20 minutes. And then 20 minutes after it stops, the sidewalks and streets are dry again. Well, unless it is a major storm. Very different than the DC area, where if it rains then it stays damp all day long.
