Known as the Harbor City, Melbourne, Florida was rated one of the most affordable metropolitan areas in the nation in a survey by the National Association of Home Builders. The city was also recognized by Money Magazine as one of the Best Places to Live in the southeast.
Fun and excitement are just around the corner, with Melbourne apartments for rent located an hour east of Disney World and an hour from the Kennedy Space Center. A portion of Melbourne is located on a barrier island, separated from the mainland by the Indian River Lagoon, providing residents and visitors with outstanding views of the harbor and the Atlantic Ocean. An apartment for rent in Melbourne also puts you conveniently close to spring training major league baseball games.
Melbourne apartments for rent are a quick drive from the Florida Institute of Technology, multiple defense and technology companies, and downtown Melbourne Main Street. The Eau Gallie Riverfront district hosts outdoor festivals, two parks and a number of small merchants and popular restaurants.
