Living in Florida has been a wonderful experience from the start, especially since I have seen different parts of the state over the years.
My family settled in Tampa for a few years before buying a house in Sarasota where my parents still live.
During college I was living in Fort Lauderdale, but afterward I moved southward upon finding a job in Cocoa. It’s a beautiful area to be in, especially having both the Kennedy and Cape Canaveral Space Stations within driving distance of my apartment. There are numerous shops on Merritt Island and in Old Cocoa Village. If you drive toward the ocean, you’ll find the highly coveted Cocoa Beach. Sometimes I take my kayak and explore the Banana River Aquatic Preserve with one of my friends. There are plenty of people to meet if you go out at night, but it’s also great enjoying Florida without being in a massive metropolitan city like Tampa or Miami. However, Cocoa is toward the north in Florida, and is famous for an event called the “Great Freeze” in which citrus crops were lost and farmers were forced to seek other employment. Although this was in the last years of the 1800s, Coca still experiences cold weather from time to time. I have kept thinking about getting a space heater for my apartment, but I put it off every year. This year I couldn’t find a space heater even though it was still the last week of November. I drove to Titusville just to find a space heater, but then I left empty handed as all of the hardware stores there were out of heating equipment as well.
