Palm Bay is a bustling community that offers a great deal to its residents. In recent years there have been a number of new businesses such as Brevard Health Alliance, Harris, and Raytheon that have decided to call Palm Bay home, which has created numerous jobs for this city. In addition to the many jobs in Palm Bay, you can also find many parks and recreational facilities where you can enjoy some leisurely time.

it is very hot here almost year-round. We have nice beaches but also a lot of mosquitoes so bring bug spray! The people here are nice and friendly. The homes and hotels are beautiful so whether you decide to stay at a hotel or an AirBNB, you’ll love it!

Our city is one of the few that you will encounter rockets blasting off to space. This is a well rounded area with beaches, countrysides, and space exploration. We also pride our community for its diverse population. We are the home of Florida Institute of Technology which draws students from around the globe.

Before moving to Palm Bay, Florida, be aware of the crime rate. Palm Bay has its merits as with any other city, but drug users and drunkards abound, and people should take that into account before moving here.

Someone who might be moving here should know Palm Bay is very boring There’s also a big drug problem and a lot of poverty. If someone was moving to this general area, I would advise them to rethink that decision and maybe more more North.
