It all started…
Around nine months ago my husband and I decide to move to Viera, Florida and six months ago we bought a lot. Our story started with us looking for an investment property in the area that quickly turned into us relocating all together. Melbourne has it all from being close to Disney, golf carts and a master planned community to endless entrepreneurial opportunities and a better quality of life.
1. Master planned communities for families
Some of the most appealing qualities of a master planned community, such as Viera, is the family friendly atmosphere, planned around family values and needs. So far every neighborhood I have been in has a pocket park that includes at least a playground, and an additional amenity like a basketball court, splash pad and most include a dog park. There are also several multi-use centers under development that will offer convenient shopping and dining options for residents. The Viera Company has built a community almost any family would want to live in.
2. Brevard Zoo
Brevard Zoo is another gem in Viera offering educational and imaginative activities. I had no idea how much I would love my membership to the Zoo, nor did I realize just how much use I would get out of it. The Brevard Zoo is our go-to for stimulation offering many activities including a splash pad, a petting zoo, a Wildlife Detective Training Academy, a train tour and did I mention all the zoo animals? I think our favorite event so far was Boo at the Zoo where they set up Trick or Treating throughout the whole park and the kids absolutely loved it!
Throughout our short time in Viera we have been to the Zoo many times and I am amazed that there is always something new going on with their many programs. The Zoo works hard to “promote conservation through education and participation,” and as a result it offers one of a kind experiences for kids. These topics are extremely important to me and my family and I personally love that I can engage my children in learning more about the environment through the experiences that our local Zoo offers.
3. A Rated Schools
Speaking of education, the schools are also amazing in Viera! Every school in Viera has an “A” rating. In fact, the schools are so amazing that they are quickly filling up because so many people love this town and are taking advantage of its many opportunities. There is already construction happening on a new elementary school as well as other charter schools popping up to accommodate the growth. From our personal experience we have been very happy with our daughter’s transition to Kindergarten. The teacher has been very hands on with great communication and we have seen a lot of growth in our little girl. So we are very happy with the public schools in Viera.
4. Best Surf on the East Coast
In addition to the many wonderful reasons to live in Viera I have already mentioned, I must point out the most obvious reason, the beach, or more specifically the surf! I was born and raised in Southern California and surf is a part of my upbringing as well as a passion of my husbands. The Space coast has some of, if not the best, surf on the east coast. I am also pleased to report that the sets have far surpassed even our expectations.
5. A Growing Economy
Finally, and selfishly one of my main reasons, was the opportunity for economic growth in this town. During this year while we build our home I have been blessed with the resources to take the time and launch my own company, Viera Social Media. With my skillsets and the projected growth of Professional and Business Services in Brevard County I could not resist the opportunity. An opportunity I am so thankful to strive for. An opportunity I am so thankful to have.
Our decision so far…
As a family, we feel more confident with our decision to settle down in Viera today than we ever imagined we would when it all began! Six months ago we purchased our lot and just over week ago they put a roof and windows on our house. The journey has been so fun and all the best parts are ahead!
Along the way I will be sharing information about the building process including the day at the design center, DIY projects and final decorating. We will also be sharing our journey building roots in this town while attending events and building traditions and memories with our family! Please subscribe below and follow along!
