Cocoa Beach Cocoa Florida is really two areas, a beach town and a mainland town separated by yet a third town. And geographic terminology can be somewhat confusing too. Let’s try to sort it out for you!Cocoa Beach is a town on the barrier island located between the Atlantic Ocean and the Banana River Lagoon on Florida's Central East Coast, just south of Cape Canaveral and the Kennedy Space Center. The city of Cocoa is on the western (mainland) side of the Indian River. Merritt Island, a long pointed piece of land and town parsing inland bay or lagoon waters into the Indian (Westside) and Banana (Eastside) “rivers” separates Cocoa from Cocoa Beach. Got that? Cocoa Beach This beach town has made it to the radar screen of most Americans with any knowledge of Florida. Like many of the towns...

An F16 Fighting Falcon streaks by a C117. It was flying at 650 mph most of the time, less than half it's top speed. About 30,000 spectators lined the beach to watch the show which took place Oct. 4th and 5th. There was a small armada of boats moored just offshore.

Many of us enjoy a beer or two at the local tiki bar while listening to good music with friends. It's a great way to unwind and have a little fun as long as you know your limits. A big thank you goes out to all the alert servers and staff who recognize when a patron is seeing Sidesurf Donnie instead of Surfside Johnny. When the happy hour band starts to look like this, be thankful when the bar tender stuffs you into a cab that takes you home. This photo may be funny but being charged with vehicular homicide is not. Save a life - Take a cab! I couldn't resist distorting this photo of me (on the left) playing at a local saloon. I'm sure this is how some of the patrons saw me :-) They probably couldn't tell if I was good or bad and most likely didn't care! This photo is copyright (c), all ...

Brevard Realtors have reduced the inventory of homes and condos to less than 30% of the highest inventory levels in 2007! See Brevard Market Trends. In each category we are nearing a balanced market so long as the banks do not dump a wave of foreclosures, which they are strongly incentivized not to do. Call for details of my research.

I couldn't resist taking this photo on my afternoon bike ride and no, I didn't stick around for the contest. After you've already seen a dozen or so, they all start to look the same. Life is tough on the beach :-) Are there any Active Rainers brave enough to enter the search? Come on down for Pina Coladas and some fun!

Properties are always changing and usually increase in value over time. Think of what your investment would be worth if you bought a corner of the property below. It's a great time to buy Florida Real Estate! 1960 - A1A and 520 intersection looking North. Pictured is Bishop's Gulf station and notice there are no signal lights. A Beach Wave discount beach wear store now occupies the site. The Sea Missile Motel looking South toward the beach circa 1991. First Eckerds and now CVS occupies the site. That's Faulty Towers in the distance, now all renovated in Art Deco style. Ron Jon Surf Shop circa 1991. I liked it better then. Ron Jon Surf Shop circa 1998 (I think) during construction. Walgreens is on the right before they rebuilt the store. The new and "improved" Ron Jon These photos are co...
