MI-BOX Moving Guide to Melbourne, Florida
Moving to Melbourne
The Space Coast of Florida is one of the most interesting places to live in the United States. With two space centers and multiple rocket launches each year, this is a special place to live. However, the beautiful city of Melbourne promises much more than an adventurous peek into humanity’s space exploits. If you’ve been thinking about moving to Melbourne, Florida, this is your go-to guide. If you haven’t been thinking about moving to Melbourne, here’s why you might want to consider it.
Long before modern civilization, mammoths roamed the land of Melbourne, or Crane Creek as it was previously known. There have been significant archaeological remains from nearly 10,000 years ago found across Melbourne. The findings are famously known as the “Melbourne Bone Bed.” The University of Florida has done a lot of research on these artifacts, which draws students to the area, giving them a reason to move to Melbourne.
Melbourne was founded in 1867, after the Civil War. It indeed has a connection to the Australian city of Melbourne. It was named in honor of the city’s first postmaster, Cornthwaite John Hector, an Englishman who had spent most of his life in Melbourne, Australia. His move from Melbourne, Australia to the United States, created a lifelong impact on the history of Melbourne, Florida.
During World War II, this city was a training site for Navy and Marine pilots. It was critical to the war effort, training more than 2,000 pilots. The Naval Air Station is now Orlando Melbourne International Airport. After the war, the city of Melbourne took part in the post-war growth boom. Melbourne combined with the city of Eau Gallie in 1969 and has been growing steadily ever since.
Melbourne has been a leading city in the civil rights movement. In 1960, the city’s first black councilman, Julius Montgomery, was elected. He was also the first black professional to join NASA at the Kennedy Space Center in 1956. Several other civil rights leaders have called the city home. Harry T. Moore was a Brevard County resident and one of the early leaders of the civil rights movement.Since 1950, Cape Canaveral, located to the north of Melbourne, has been a significant attraction that draws tourists to the Space Coast. The ‘Space Bay’ area near Cape Canaveral is both a local favorite and a big tourism draw. People from far and wide come to enjoy not only the rocket launches but the natural beauty of the area. The city’s economy is now driven by tourism, the aerospace industry, and a growing high-technology industry. It is also home to the prestigious Florida Institute of Technology. Many students live here temporarily, making use of MI-BOX’s mobile mini storage facilities until they find their feet and decide to settle. Today, moving to Melbourne, Florida, is an excellent decision because of its safety, cultural balance, diversity, moderate taxes, and exceptional school system.
Melbourne is approximately 60 miles southeast of Orlando, along Interstate 95. It lies almost midway between Jacksonville and Miami.

If you plan to move to Melbourne, FL, MI-BOX has plenty of portable storage containers and other convenient facilities to help make the transition easier.
Melbourne is located in Brevard County in east-central Florida. It is situated on the Intracoastal Waterway by the Indian River. In 1969, the erstwhile city of Eau Gallie was merged with Melbourne. The decision to combine the two cities was quite controversial back in the day. Brevard Drive used to be the town’s central hub, drawing people from the north and south. The city is often confused with Melbourne Beach, which is a different entity. Melbourne is a region that experiences humid weather the majority of the year. Portable storage containers come in handy to store away seasonal household items.

That’s how MI-BOX can help with their portable storage containers and mobile storage containers where you can safely keep your seasonal items.

However, the city sees 2.9 days on average where frost may be present.
