When I moved to Florida during 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 June regardless of the hot and cold temperatures or sunshine intensity. By the time I got to middle school, I was used to the extreme heat and the lack of real seasons throughout the year. However, I lived in a particularly unforgiving weather conditions 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 sixths. It was miserable, however it’s all I knew at the time. When I moved to Cocoa, Florida for a job last year, I was amazed at this gorgeous city. My beach house is within a block from the Indian River, and the bridge takes you over the river and onto the giant 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 morning during a nasty summer time heat wave that affected Cocoa and the surrounding area. There are a lot of indoor attractions at the Space Center and their is particularly cold compared to museums and stores on Merritt Island. Once the weather improves and I’m no longer a slave to , I would love to rent a kayak and explore the Ulumay Wildlife Sanctuary via Sykes Creek. There are so various amazing places to visit near Cocoa, FL regardless of the season and the hot and cold temperatures outside.
