air force relocation: Patrick AFB Relocation: A Trip To The Kennedy Space Center - 05/28/08 09:14 AM
This article is part of "The Patrick AFB Online Relocation Package".
 
One of the "must do" things while living in Brevard County is to visit the Kennedy Space Center. It is located in the northern part of the county, but is a very short trip for anyone living in the area.

This article is part of "The Patrick AFB Online Relocation Package".
Recent History For Home Values In Brevard County FL, "Florida's Space Coast":
The median home price in Brevard County, like almost everywhere else, has declined since its highs in 2005. From 2003 to 2005, the median single-family home price shot up 72% in two years.
