When I moved to FL while I was in my early childhood, I had to get used to the tepid summers whether I liked them or not.
My friends wanted to play outdoors in July regardless of the temperatures or sun intensity.
By the time I got to private school, I was used to the dire heat and the lack of real seasons throughout the year. However, I lived in a particularly unforgiving temperature in the suburbs of Orlando. The two of us were far from the ocean and all of the swamps and trees retained the summer’s heat well into the evening hours. It was agitated, however it’s all I knew at the time. When I moved to Cocoa, FL for a job last year, I was amazed at this gorgeous city. My cabin is within a block from the Indian River, and the bridge takes you over the river and onto the huge key that contains the Kennedy Space Center. Another bridge across Banana River takes you to the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station. I decided to spend my time at Kennedy Space Center 1 day while I was in a nasty Summer heat wave that affected Cocoa and the surrounding area. There are a lot of indoor attractions at the Space Center and their air conditioning is particularly cold compared to museums and stores on Merritt Island. Once the weather improves and I’m no longer a slave to air conditioning, I would love to rent a kayak and explore the Ulumay Wildlife Sanctuary via Sykes Creek. There are so multiple amazing places to visit near Cocoa, FL regardless of the season and the temperatures outside.
