We currently live in Orlando and hate it. Want to be at the beach. We're married, no kids, late 40's. What are the good & bad about Cocoa Beach area? How long have you lived there? Where are you from originally? Thank you!

i lived in orlando for 4 years before moving here....there isn't really a job market all besides some and I mean "some" tourist stuff...nothing major just waiting tables, etc...luckily I work from home...

the beach is great, no traffic is awesome, the winters when there isn't anybody here are the best. people are laid back, and there isn't a whole, whole lot of crime. of course there is crime. a lot of drinking and weed, but that's everywhere. it's nice, it's different than orlando. better in my opinion, but again not really a ton of jobs.

Do NOT move to the cocoa area!!! I lived in Orlando and moved over to brevard thinking it would be better.... and BOY WAS I WRONG!! These people are rude and depressed, and there is A LOT of section 8 and crime. I literally witnessed people doing drugs out of my doors "peep hole" and my neighbors across from me are drug dealers. THIS PLACE MAKES ORLANDO LOOK LIKE HEAVEN. Can't wait to move back home!!!!

Cocoa is not Cocoa Beach. Literally night and day. I don't go to Cocoa except to drive through to get somewhere else.
