When I tell people that I live in Cocoa FL, most of them instantly mention the beach, Cape Canaveral or Kennedy Space Center! Indeed, those are the main attractions in this area, but there is so much more to do outside of those tourist attractionsâ€¦ And being a local, there are times when I completely avoid the tourist areas, however those places can get quite hectic especially during the Summer when the weather is tepid outside, and personally, I prefer going to Cocoa Village where there are events that happen all throughout the year; Concerts, festivals, arts plus crafts shows, plus everything in between, then living in Cocoa does come with some challenges though.
I prefer the Summers here but at times, the heat makes it impossible to spend time outside, however for instance, there was a free concert in the neighborhood back in July plus myself and others plus our friends wanted to go because it was with a local artist that the two of us happen to love.
Well, that morning the weather was a scorching 97 degrees plus because this was an outdoor event, there would be no air conditioning, but so, I had to decide if I wanted to be outside in the heat or stay beach house in our comfortable air conditioning. In the end, I decided to stay beach house because it’s not comfortable being outside during the morning when the temperatures are scorching, plus you have no way to stay coolâ€¦ Of course, our friends were not cheerful with our decision, plus they went to the concert separate from me. Ironically, they complained about how tepid it was that morning, plus I was just cheerful that I stayed beach house in our air conditioning.
