Public schools are terrible here except for Gemini in Melbourne Beach. Very judgemental people residing in Brevard County. Lots of crime and terrible restaurants. Beach is of course beautiful but otherwise, you have to drive to Orlando for any type of culture or entertainment. From my experience, the only people who love BC have grown up here and haven’t seen how wonderful the world is outside of it! Can’t wait to move away from this place.

Kind and Frie sky community. Who UPLIFT and help one another. CARING, giving, Tidy and supportive. Brevard cares for everyone and believe in opportunities for the homeless, disabled, sick and less fortunate. I was single mom struggling with three kids just found out I was having twins. They provided free classes, clothing, diapers that help me get ahead while I work fulltime . Hospirals are superer and giving. Great Christian foundations to help bring your children.. FRESH NEW START
Brevard is a good place to raise a family, but not great for young people as far as activities go. Yes, we do have a beautiful outdoors scene, but not much as far as events and nightlife. As more people are moving here, that aspect has become better, but it still has room for improvement.
