Melbourne is a full-service municipality on the Space Coast and is the hub community of southern Brevard County.
Melbourne is about an hour's drive south of the Kennedy Space Center, and 1-1/2 hours due east of Disney World.
The City is in the southern portion of Brevard County. Interstate-95 runs through the county from north-to-south. Access roads
from the west include the Beeline Expressway and State Road 192, which runs through Melbourne to the beaches.
Nearby incorporated communities include Palm Bay, West Melbourne, Indialantic, Melbourne Beach, Indian Harbor Beach,
and Satellite Beach.
Viera, an unincorporated community, is also nearby.
While most of Melbourne is located on the Florida mainland, a small portion is located on a barrier island. The Indian River
Lagoon separates the mainland from the island. The island is a narrow strip of land that separates the Lagoon from the
Atlantic Ocean. (In prehistoric times the Lagoon was connected to the Ocean. Today, the only connection is by way of a
handful of inlets, including the manmade Sebastian Inlet at the southern end of Brevard County.)
Spanning the Indian River Lagoon to connect the mainland to the barrier island are a pair of four-lane, high-rise bridges --
the Melbourne Causeway and the Eau Gallie Causeway.
The Space Coast is known as a high-tech center of the Southeast. Major employers in Melbourne vicinity include Harris
Corporation, Rockwell Collins, Florida Institute of Technology, Holmes Regional Hospital, Northrop Grumman Corporation -
Surveillance and Battle Management Systems, Dictaphone, GE Transportation Systems and Rossi Electronics,
Florida TODAY (Gannett) Newspaper, Brevard Community College, and the Brevard County School Board.
