The Sanctuary is one of my favorite communities in the South Brevard Beach area. It is located in Indialantic...just south of the Eau Gallie Causeway. The location is ideal for those commuting to the mainland side...while still allowing VERY close proximity to the beaches. The Sanctuary is a gated community that has a nice array of amenities. A clubhouse that includes activities like happy hours and meeting facilities...two tennis courts for residents...and a community pool that is open nightly until 10pm (note: no lifeguards). The Sanctuary feeds all "A-Rated" schools from elementary through high school so this is a very popular community for those who are looking at public schools for their children. The price range is the sanctuary generally runs from the mid 200's up to over half a...

Obviously any community that is oceanfront in Florida is almost expected to have decent seafood. Indialantic, FL is no exception...and one of the better seafood restaurants on the Space Coast is Island Fish Grill in Indialantic. Island Fish Grill has a nice menu with quite a few different seafood (mostly Fish) options...they also carry a bunch of nightly specials so make sure your server does a good job of telling you about them. The Onion Crusted Grouper is fantastic!!! This is not a cheap place to eat...and I would suggest you make this a date night or special occasion place. It is fine to bring kids but I can't say that I recommend that...the menu is not very kid friendly. My recommendation...bring a date, corporate clients, birthday fun, etc...(leave the kids at home :) Entrees ten...

Many small neighborhoods dot the South Brevard Beach area from the Pineda Causeway down to the South Melbourne Beaches. One Such neighborhood is Sea Side in Indialantic, FL. Have you ever dreamed of living in a small enclave of homes with no through traffic...all beautifully maintained homes, all with tile roofs...very affordable...and have it be directly across the street from the beach? Sea Side might just be what your looking for! Before you get too excited let me give you some bad news...Sea Side has only 22 homes in this small section...and they rarely go up for sale. In fact...since it has been a couple of years since anything has been available I can only guess at a price range. The homes all range from a little over 1500 sqft to a little over 2000 sqft. The prices should range ...

Quite a few good happy hours exist in the Melbourne, FL area...especially in Downtown Melbourne. Many also exist along the Space Coast....but in the South Brevard beach area we have only a few good options. That being said...if you are looking for a place that is a little more sophisticated and has a bit more of an upscale clientele...the place for you may be City Tropics. City Tropics is located in Indialantic, FL...directly on 5th Ave (5th Ave is the main drag in Indialantic). It has two bar areas...one inside and one tiki style area outside. City Tropics also offers a full bar style menu as well as a very nice Sushi bar. The food is good, the Sushi is decent...and the drinks are downright cheap...how about $2 domestic beers until 7pm!!!! If you are looking for a nice low pressure pl...

Howard E. Futch Memorial Park...aka...Paradise Beach Park in Indialantic is a public beach park about 1/2 mile south of Eau Gallie...and a couple of miles north of the 5th Ave Causeway...on Hwy A1A. This park is loaded with amenities like a large children's playground area, lots of beach volleyball courts, multiple BBQ areas, Covered party patio areas, showers, bathroom facilities, and more. The beach at Paradise Beach Park is lifeguard protected so it is a great choice for those with children or women who are heading to the beach alone. One of the real benefits to Paradise Beach Park over some of the other close by beach front parks is the large FREE parking lot that is available to users. It is also directly across the street from a group of restaurants and bars that include Bunky's,...

Anyone who follows my blog and blog posts know that I enjoy an occasional drink on an outdoor covered patio as well as a great burger...in Indialantic, FL I have found both in one place...Ichabod's Bar & Grille! Now burgers are not the only thing Ichabod's serves on it's menu...the nachos are enormous...enough for three or four good eaters, the chicken sandwich is outstanding, and the fish tacos are a good choice. Ichabod's has a large selection for lunch and dinner. The burgers here are real standouts...they are absolutely some of the best in the South Brevard Beach area. Here is a link to their menu: http://ichabodsbarandgrille-florida.com/page6.html Ichabod's has both a large indoor bar area as well as an outdoor covered patio bar with additional tables. This is a great area to have...

....Sometimes you just want to have a big breakfast and not drive too far to get it. In Indialantic, FL that place is the Blueberry Muffin! The Blueberry Muffin serves breakfast and lunch daily and the reasonably priced menu with large portions and great specials make this the "place to go" on the south Brevard beaches. The blueberry muffins are fine...but try one of the chocolate chip muffins if they are available when you go...they are amazing. ...an FYI for those with kids...my grade school son says they have the best pancakes he has ever had...since that is the only thing he orders whenever we go out for breakfast...it is high praise indeed! A couple of points about the Blueberry Muffin: 1. Come early: it tends to get very crowded and the wait can be a little long. 2. They have cou...

My son and I decided to check out the best pizza in the area. He is nine years old...so pizza is his favorite food! I guess it would likely fit in the top ten of most favorite food lists :) First we had some ground rules...no mass produced pizza (Pizza Hut, Papa Johns, Little Ceasars, Dominos...we elimanted these because we figured they had zero chance of being the best). Second we felt we should order a slice...or a large pizza only (a medium or a small pizza can tend to have a thicker crust). Third...only thin crust pizza...the best deep dish is another blog post.   here is our decision on the top two places we found (from the 13 pizza restaurants we visited in the last 30 days...lol).   Bizzarro's: Indialantic, FL The original Bizzarro's on the beach at 5th Ave in Indialantic is stil...

  Just A Summer Day in Indialantic, Florida     Today was another beautiful day at the beach in Indialantic, Florida near 5th Avenue.  People soaked up the sun and enjoyed the ocean while lifeguards kept a watchful eye on swimmers.   Don't think of Brevard's beaches as a vacation destination....think of it as your new hometown.  If you are dreaming of owning a home or condominium near the beach, contact Melbourne real estate agent, Laura Forman - Realtor, CDPE

This weekend we headed to the Fall Festival that was being held at Holy Name of Jesus Church in Indialantic Florida. It was a pretty day, a bit warmer than it's been lately.  Many people had the same idea we did, as there were alot of people there.  It was tough to find a parking place. Wristbands for Sunday were $20 and they allowed you to ride any ride in the park as many times as you wanted.  There was a wide variety of delicious food: barbeque, hot dogs, brats, hamburgers, french fries, corn on the cob, chowder, pizza, gyros, ice cream, snow cones, cotton candy, and my favorite, funnel cake. I'm not a huge fan of carnival rides.  Come on, a ride called the Freak Out that spins you in circles and whirls you into the air?  I think I'd be the one Freaking Out.  And, the Tornado?  I th...

 Something didn't sound right. I was in my garage and hear what sounds like a low flying jet. So I go outside and look up and see a Very low flying jet with something on top of it. I run into the house and grab my camera. I run back out and snap these eight photo's. The first couple of photo's were with no zoom. It literally was 100' directly over my house when I first saw it.

Earlier this week I was going through some of my recent job photo's to put up on my website and ran across this picture that I took out in front of my house. It looked like this dragonfly was smiling. So I thought I would share it here with you all.   -Paul These photos by Paul Peck (Peck Drywall and Painting) are copyrighted with all rights reserved.

 That's what happens when a bride to be hangs her wedding dress on the fire sprinkler in Indialantic, Florida . We repaired this Indialantic, Florida upscale oceanfront hotel suite's popcorn ceiling due to Water damage from the fire sprinkler spraying water for 30 minutes at high pressure directly into the Brevard County hotel room. Popcorn ceiling repairs are difficult to do for most contractors. It takes proper prep and technique by an experienced proffessional for it to blend in to the existing ceiling. Below is the popcorn ceiling repair after photo of the ceiling repair we did. Let me know what you think. While we were at the hotel repairing the water damaged popcorn ceiling, the hotel wanted us to do a sample bathroom which included wallpaper removal, drywall repairs, retexturing ...

The 20th Annual Indialantic Art Festival was held on Jan.16th and 17th this year. We are very fortunate here on the Space Coast to have several top notch festivals to enjoy and the talent is outstanding. More than 100 artists and hundreds of art lovers converged on beachside Nance Park in the Melbourne area for two memorable days. Of course, my wife Marla found another "one of a kind" bracelet that she couldn't live without but that's part of the fun and we're "supporting the arts" :-) Kermit finds a friend. Grab a snack and see the show. The apple pie was delicious. Colorful fish and nostalgic map art.   Stained glass by Margaret & Jerry McLennan, New Albany, MS.

Indialantic No shirt, no shoes, no worries. There is nothing like a few days at the beach to set the world right. No calls, no computer, no meetings. Sand on your feet, sun on your head, nothing on your mind except ... nothing. The biggest decision involves what to do this afternoon: Read? Walk on the beach? Swim in the ocean? Nap? All of the above? No deadlines or layoffs or schedules. For your viewing pleasure, dolphins engage in synchronized swimming and pelicans perfect their dive-bombing and formation flying. Indialantic, a little beach town near Melbourne. Indialantic, and its sister town, Melbourne Beach, are mom-and-pop kind of places, residential beach towns that once were common in Florida but became precious during the past 20 years as the state grew by 6 million residents.

My husband's 30 year high school reunion from Satellite Beach High School was recently held at the beautiful Melbourne Beach Hilton located in Indialantic Florida, here in Brevard County.  Special accomodations were made for the guests at the Hilton. The reunion gave us all an opportunity to stroll down memory lane and catch up on the last 30 years.  Alumni traveled from across the country to attend the special 3 day function. I just wanted share some of the beautiful views of Indialantic Florida out the Melbourne Beach Hilton windows.
