The Space Coast may lack substantial cultural or artistic attractions, but it more than makes up for them with low taxes and beautiful beaches. Palm Bay is a hot spot for seaside activities such as boating and fishing as well as the more landlocked hobbies of hiking tennis and golf.

Pros:  Warm climate, proximity to international airport and major cruise port, huge range of outdoor activities.

Cons: Small public transportation system, hurricane risk from June to November
