So, my husband, two kids and I are considering moving to the Cocoa Beach area before fall. We were wondering if anyone could give us any ideas on places to rent/work. Also, what's the chance of someone hiring/renting us since we're from so far away?
We're in our mid-20's, I have some college, he does labor work here, such as construction.
Any info or advice is appreciated.

If you guys move here then the distance won't be a problem. There are jobs here but the pay is not as good as in ky. I wish you guys luck.

Renting shouldn't be too much of an issue. There are plenty of rental properties what with the downturn in the Space industry and all. Work is a different story. Lots of laid off folks here and you'll be competing with college educated people willing to do anything.(My sister is degreed and currently doing a job far beneath her education and background just to pay the bills.) Any particular reason why you're targeting CC Beach/Brevard County?

You're better off in the tri-state but, you have your heart set, try out North Florida. The area is struggling very hard with jobs. We have many who were laid off from NASA looking, college kids looking for jobs and those moving from North also looking for jobs. Don't risk it.

we also moved to fla in the 90's lived outside orlando for ten years. winter garden area. just look for the cranes in the air, for a construction job. and your about an hour from cocoa. easy drive and the best beach in fla. your also close to the resorts. if you get your foot in the door, there is alot of construction there also at times.we are now back home in scioto co ohio, and enjoyed the time we spent there.
