Life’s a beach on Cocoa Beach!

 

beach

 

I live in a small town. Cocoa Beach is a small town.

 

You know you live in a small town when...

people know you and don't ask for your ID when you write a check,

you use landmarks and points of interest rather than street names or addresses when giving directions to out of town folks and

you measure distance by the number of traffic lights rather than minutes or miles.

When we moved to Florida, one of the things that attracted us to Cocoa Beach was that small town atmosphere. The 12,000 locals were friendly and the pace of life was relaxed. That is still true today, 30 years later, even though Cocoa Beach has been discovered as a resort town and popular tourist destination.

Cocoa Beach is different things to different people…it is a relaxing day at the beach for mainlanders, a great surfing location and a favorite “home away from home” for our snowbirds.

Whether you want to raise a family, relax or retire, the casual, friendly lifestyle of Cocoa Beach makes it the perfect place to do so.

Cocoa Beach is a barrier island with six miles of beaches on the east and the Banana River on the west. Cape Canaveral borders Cocoa Beach to the north with Patrick Air Force Base to the south.

We enjoy sub-tropical weather with average lows around 50* in what passes for our winter and highs in the summer around 90* with a light sea breeze most days.

Cocoa Beach is known for its waterfront property and you can choose your view…

The Atlantic Ocean offers gorgeous sunrises, surfing and beach access.

 

 

The Banana River to the west is the place for boating and breathtaking sunsets.

 

 

 

 

But the canals of Cocoa Beach and their tranquil, relaxed atmosphere are its best kept secret.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

You can be as active as you want or relax as much as you like. Our fabulous weather means we can enjoy the beaches year around as well as golf, tennis, biking, boating, kayaking, swimming, surfing, parasailing, SUP and fishing.

Cocoa Beach Country Club is open to the public and offers a 27-hole municipal golf course on the Banana River, a 50-meter public swimming pool and tennis complex.

Cocoa Beach has 3 oceanfront parks with restrooms, showers and picnic tables and a state of the art skate park. Tours of the Banana River Lagoon are available by boat or kayak to see marine life and wildlife in their natural habitat. Exploring the 1,000 Islands is a favorite activity for kayakers.

There are a variety of restaurants and types of cuisine available for dining out in the Cocoa Beach area. The Art Festival during Thanksgiving weekend is a special treat.

 

If you’re looking for the perfect place to live or visit, come explore Cocoa Beach. You’ll be glad you did!

Love that small town feeling, sadly it is getting fewer and fewer, too much Internet, too much what ever, glad you do not have to show an ID and you probably know their family as well as their likes and dislikes:))Endre

Diana,

What a lovely presentation of Cocoa Beach.  The small town atmosphere is so desirable these days, when many of us seem to be just a number, or an account at the bank.  I love that no one asks for an ID when you write a check.  Your pictures are lovely and I enjoyed each one.  Thank you for your entry.  A

Locals call Cocoa Beach "The greatest little city in the world" because of the ambience and small town feeling. We work hard to keep that atmosphere even though the city is much different now than when we moved here. We watched it grow up around us, lots of changes over the years but we can't imagine living anywhere else.

Alexandra,

I'm glad you enjoyed my post, thanks! The locals are proud of our small town atmosphere and work hard to keep Cocoa Beach friendly and personal.

Yesterday afternoon my husband and I went to the local supermarket for a few things.

As we walked in the door, I ran into a former client so we chatted for a while. Next we ran into one of my attorneys so another visit. Then we ran into yet another former client so more catching up. As we checked out, we chatted with the cashier who waved us through without asking for ID!

It took us over an hour to do 30 minutes of shopping but that is typical and just one of the reasons we love our small town.

Good evening Diana Zaccaro ,  I enjoyed the small town of Cocoa Beach during the times I exhibited there. I had a few favorite places to eat too.

This is certainly an inviting blog. Many Maryland retirees are relocating to Florida.

Larry Johnston There were big changes to the Art Show last year and it is expected to be even better this year. We probably have some new places to eat since you were last here...how long has it been?

Just wondering...when you exhibited in Cocoa Beach did you by any chance do any paintings of the city? It would be great to have one...

I'm glad you enjoyed my post and hope you found it informative. We have a lot of retirees here from Maryland as well as most of the states north of Maryland. It's a great place to relax and enjoy life.

That's the beauty of Cocoa Beach, Laura...something for everyone. Not everyone is a "beach person", some love the river views of the sunsets and others enjoy living on the canals.

We get the best of both worlds...in the morning we see the sun rise over the ocean and in the evening, just a few blocks away we get amazing sunsets over the river.

Thanks!

Diana

We have had colder than normal weather the past few days but today it is warming up again and we should be in the 70s over the weekend. Come on down and thaw out!
