Enigmatically located on a peninsula — not an island — Merritt Island, FL, is an unincorporated town on Florida's Space Coast. The peninsula is home to the Kennedy Space Center, although neighboring Cape Canaveral has the more famous name. Even with the end of the shuttle program, it's still relatively common to see launches from the facility nearby. It's easy to get into Merritt Island coming from the Orlando or Melbourne Orlando international airports, and there is also plenty of Highway connectivity as well. Port Canaveral, one of the world's busiest cruise ports, is also a major point of entry to the town. The main town center is roughly in the center of the peninsula, with bridges and causeways leading out to the barrier islands and over to the mainland. (read more about living in Merritt Island)

Merritt Island draws a wide variety of visitors, permanent residents and semi-permanent residents for an even wider variety of reasons. Tourism is a major factor, as the Kennedy Space Center is located right in town. There's also a military presence, due to a number of installations around the Space Coast, and several civilian satellite businesses in the aerospace and defense industries. Many people also come through Merritt Island, at least for a night or two, on their way in or out of the massive Port Canaveral cruise center. Finally, although the prime locale is often overshadowed by the associations with NASA, Merritt Island is located next to some stunning nature preserves — not to mention the Ulumay Wildlife Sanctuary located right in the center of the peninsula.
