You've heard of Cocoa Beach and Cape Canaveral on the east coast of the sunshine state, but chances are you can't find Rockledge, Florida. We are tucked right behind the barrier island, and my neighborhood is the quietest place I have ever lived. Living in Rockledge is all about enjoying all the amenities of Florida without the crowds and tourists.

The best areas in Rockledge are the water-related activities. We are up against the Indian River, but a short jog over the bridge at you are at Cocoa Beach. Interstate I-95 runs down the west side of Rockledge, so I can be at Palm Bay or Daytona Beach in an hour tops.

I can see the rockets leave Cape Canaveral from my porch, and I can be on I-4 and to Disney World in an hour. With Orlando to my west and Daytona to my north, there is no shortage of top-rated places to each or shop whenever I have family visiting.
