GoVets is proud to be from the Space Coast of Florida... But what does Space Coast really mean?
The Space Coast is located in Brevard County.... Just east of Orlando, Florida. According to Wikipedia, the Space Coast is a region in the U.S. state of Florida around the Kennedy Space Center and Cape Canaveral Space Force Station. It is one of several "themed" coasts around Florida. All of NASA-launched crewed spaceflights have departed from either KSC or Cape Canaveral. This whole area is surrounded by amazing organizations, colleges, high tech companies, government contractors, and government facilities, including:

With the revival of the space program, there are countless jobs in this area. The population of Brevard county is just over 600,000 and according to BestPlaces.net, median home prices for this area are just over $210,000, making Brevard more affordable, than the National Average of $231,000.
