I grew up In Satellite Beach, Florida and even went to Satellite High school. When I think about Satellite Beach I think of friendly faces, oceans breezes, and sand between my toes. Satellite Beach has a great diversity of ages. There are lots of young, growing families as well as many people that have chosen this area to retire. Many people have Chosen Satellite beach for their winters, we have many "snowbirds" that come and enjoy this beautiful town every year. My favorite thing about this town is its beach and laid back attitude residents have. The change I would like to see would be more beach conservation. Residents and visitors both love these beaches and we need more laws passed to ensure that these beaches will be here for people to enjoy for many years to come.

I've been living in Satellite Beach for about 14 years now and it has been decently enjoyable. The beach is very close and the people are pretty friendly. That's really all the positive things I can say about this place. There are plenty of problems with the town but the biggest issues may be the over-abundance of condos, environmental issues and it's overall incredibly conservative. Thankfully, these issues are getting better but it's still pretty bad at the moment
Satellite beach is trash just like the rest of Florida. The beaches are horrendous, filled with litter and really dirty water. Would not recommend!
