Located in Brevard County, on the east coast of the peninsula, nearly along the centerline of the state, Melbourne is home to the Brevard Zoo, Wickham Park, and Lake Washington.
There is a good deal of public and private schools in the area, ranging from elementary up through high school. Additionally, a number of high-quality colleges and universities are located in and around the city of Melbourne, Florida.
Additionally, there's a number of places to go for entertainment, dining, and shopping. Of course, since it's in a warm weather climate, recreational opportunities are nearly always available, nearly every single day of the year.
Here's a quick look at the cost of living in beautiful Melbourne, Florida:
The national average scores a baseline of 100. Meaning, anything under that is less expensive and anything over that costs more. Overall, compared to the national average, Melbourne comes in at an affordable 91.6, with a breakdown, as follows:
• The cost of housing in Melbourne is surprisingly lower than one would imagine. It comes in at an incredibly low score of 73.
• The cost of healthcare in Melbourne is also less expensive than the national average, coming in at 93.
• The cost of miscellaneous items in Melbourne is right at parity with the national figure of 100.
• The cost of groceries in Melbourne is just over the national number, with a score of 100.5. (So, it's really not much more expensive, whatsoever.)
• The cost of transportation in Melbourne is also slightly above the national average, at 103.
• Last on the list is the cost of utilities in Melbourne, which comes in at 105. Here again, not really much more expensive.
