Things to Do in Melbourne, FL (Autumn, 2021)

Melbourne, FL Areal Photo

The Fall season in Florida, unlike other parts of the country, is not one of changing leaves and cold weather, but instead has a beauty all its own: moderate weather that is cooler than usual without being cold, and humidity levels that drop significantly when compared to Spring and Summer.  With that said, there is much to do in Florida during the season, especially for the Retirement Community living along the Sunshine State’s beautiful and luxurious Space Coast.  If you’ve lived in Florida for a decent amount of time, then you’re probably well aware of all the wonderful things you can do in the Autumn season.  If you’re new to the state, the Space Coast area, and or are a new resident of Victoria Landing, below is a list of several things that will help enrich your Autumn Experience and create some long-lasting memories.

Manatee Watching

Did you know that in the Fall season, Manatee activity increases significantly in the lagoon and surrounding rivers?  Due to the colder temperatures of the water, Manatees will begin to group together more often, residing in areas closer to the shoreline.  This would be a great time to stand on Victoria Landing’s dock and take a gander; do you see any of Brevard’s lovable and beloved sea cows?

Take a Brisk Walk around Downtown Eau Gallie

What a better time than Fall to take a nice little downtown stroll through Old Eau Gallie’s art and shopping district?  While the air is crisp and cool and the humidity is at an enjoyable low, utilize this season to get in some healthy exercise, all the while enjoying the simple and scenic pleasures Eau Gallie has to offer.  After all, the downtown area is nestled just down the street from the Victoria Landing property; surely within walking distance.  Be safe, though; be sure to take a friend or loved one along with you!

ArtWorks Eau Gallie Art Festival

Are you in the mood for an art show?  Well, you’re in luck!  Coming up in November in the Eau Gallie Arts District is the ArtWorks Eau Gallie Art Festival that is sure to bring joy and entertainment to you, your friends, and your family!  Whether you feel like indulging in the educations of art, or simply viewing the art as a spectator, the prices for entry are more than agreeable and is an event that is sure to tickle the brain and create some lifelong memories.  Don’t pass this up!

Downtown Melbourne Food and Wine Festival

There’s something fantastical about food and wine festivals; sipping wine, trying out new brands and flavors, sampling varieties of cheeses and other assorted eats- it just doesn’t get much better than that, does it?  Well, if you’ve been hankering for a decent Food/Wine event, then one of the county’s BEST is returning this November: The Downtown Melbourne Food & Wine Festival!  This is one of Central Florida’s most popular and longstanding Food and Wine festivals of the last few decades, and for good reason; good company, great wine, enjoyable foods, and all-around fun for you and your friends!  Don’t pass up this Fall’s Food and Wine Festival!


Coming up in November is the Brevard Zoo’s ‘Jazzoo’ event, located just on the outskirts of Viera!  Jazoo is, naturally, a music festival, but one that is not genre-exclusive; music from ALL GENRES are being played across the event’s SIX DIFFERENT STAGES.  There will also be food from over 30 different restaurants in attendance, as well as individual caterers and food trucks!  There will also be full open bars and a sports bar!  With tickets as reasonably priced as they are, the Brevard County Zoo’s JAZZOO event may just be the KICK your Autumn season was looking for!

Enjoy Autumn

So, as you can see, there is so much to do along Florida’s Space Coast during the Autumn season, and the area surrounding Victoria Landing is buzzing with events, shows, festivals, and more; there truly is something special about the fall season.  Enjoy every moment of it!
