Relocating to Melbourne, FL

by kel_e

Hello all~
I just got back from a vacation where we stayed with friends in Melbourne, FL. I really liked the area and am looking to move down in August.

1. Which neighborhoods should I stay away from when getting an apartment/house?

2. Any recommendations on rental agencies?

3. Where should I look for employment opportunities?

4. Any other helpful relocation info?

Thanks much!!
Kelly

Kelly,

contact the local chamber
http://www.melpb-chamber.org/

As I am sure they will minimize your research efforts.

Parents lived in Cocoa Beach just North of Melbourne and loved the place. Looks like many jobs are service or hospitality related. Space Center and related companies also provide many opportunities.

Hello Kelly,
Aren't you lucky to move to Melbourne, I just returned from 5 days of relatives, fishing, and golfing, what a nice place. In melbourne, there aren't for the most part, that bad of neighborhoods. One this you do want to stay away from is the railroad tracks, they run parralel, for the most part, to US 1, and they go on all the way through the city. My parents used to live in the apartments on Aurora Rd., my Aunt/Uncle currently live in a nice neighborhood on Parkway Rd, just off of Wicham, and I used to live in Suntree, a huge development of houses that are along Wicham Road, one of the main roads in Melbourne. They have their own Suntree Reality Office, and you can also try Apartmentfinder.com for apartments.

As the last reply stated, most of the work in the area is in the healthcare and service related field, mostly due to the aging crowd that lives south of Melbourne. With that said, Melbourne is home to a large number of banks, the Space Coast Credit Union is just opening a corporate office on Wicham Road, and I'm sure they are hiring.

Hope your move goes smoothly, maybe you'll see me in the water along US1 fishing someday soon.

My husband and I have been here over a year and we are still trying to get jobs that take advantage of our educations –music /physics. However we’ve had no trouble finding intermediate jobs.

There is a desperate shortage of school teachers (science and math mainly), sub-teachers and other school related employees. There are also a good reasons for this (35 kids per class, diminishing benefits), but there may be enough situations available in the fall for you to choose from, that you could find a good one. I started out as a physics teacher and did not care for it as I had 45 kids per class for the first month despite the state law of 35 per class.

Every other restaurant is hiring. I recommend working at coffee shop, if you go this rout.

Many of the mall-type stores are hiring.

Healthcare workers are in desperate need.

Employment in the space industry may pick up very soon, but it has been a little slow since the unthinkable happened on the first of Feb. (I’ve had an interview canceled.)

Employment in tourism has also been slow due to the war and the failing airlines.

Sorry I can’t give you a better forecast than this.

In melbourne if you are looking for hospitality jobs, there is a place called
Clarion Suits Gateway on the corner of Flinders and Williams street. PLEASE DONT GO THERE !!!
that is one of the worst worst places that i have ever seen with such a rude service.
specially the restaurant over there is so unprofessional and the restaurant manager (Eric Yan) is an absolute idiot who doesnt know what he is doing

One thing you should be made aware of is that the housing cost in Melbourne, as in almost all of florida, has increased quiet a bit in the last 5 years.

Again, there are less desirable areas, but Melbourne is not huge so it doesn't have terrible areas. As someone already suggested, contact a reality company before moving and they will have detailed info.

Melbourne is a nice laid back town.

I'll be there sometime next month visiting in-laws. It's a work related visit really. I work for a company based in Palm Beach Gardens. I'll try to get you some helpful info while I'll there.

IndiAtlantic is also a nice community.

Travel Tips for Melbourne

See Pirate Treasure -- REALLY

by gkitzmil

Visit both the McLarty Treasure Museum (owned by the state) and the Mel Fisher Museum.

The McLarty is about 20 - 25 minutes south of Melbourne Beach (about 10 minutes North of Vero Beach) on A!A.

http://www.atocha1622.com/mclarty.htm

In 1715 a fleet of Spanish ships had collected a dowry for the queen of Spain. They were traveling north from Cuba to hit the westerly winds back to Spain. In very bad weather they wrecked off the coast of what is now Florida. It must have been terrible for the survivors as this was a swamp. Yet, they lost millions in gold and other treasures to the see. Even today it is possible that gold coins sometimes wash up on the beach. Much HAS been recovered in the past fifty years and some of that is on display at these two museums.

1715 Spanish Plate Fleet

seafood

by doug48 about yellow dog cafe

the yellow dog cafe is a very good seafood restaurant located on US 1 in malabar. they specialize in florida seafood, steaks, and poutry. the yellow dog cafe offers a great view of the indian river. in my opinion the best restaurant in malabar.

Airboat Ride Along the St. John River

by jadedmuse

By all means, spend some 45 minutes gliding over the St. Johns River watching snapping turtles sunning, great blue herons in all their majesty - and the main attraction: alligators sunning themselves, glancing up at you as you pass by at close range (shiver!). It's a definite blast of local color in every sense of the word!!

Quick note on the mechanics of airboats: these contraptions are noisy and strange. They don't feature a "V" shape hull so they're not really like a boat - and, the engine sits above the back of the vessel and literally propels the boat over the water, so that you are kind of gliding or skimming. It's the best way to see the swamp land and get close to the wildlife without disturbing the water underneath, and the delicate ecological systems at work.

Don't worry about the noise - most airboats come equipped with ear covers so you block out the sound of the motor!

houston pioneer cemetery

by doug48

this small cemetery is the final resting place of eau gallie's oldest families. the oldest head stone dales back to 1865. the houston pioneer cemetery is an interesting place to visit in the eau gallie historic district.
