Crime is rampant, low-income areas are overrun with homeless and sinners. Most of the city is a dried up shell of what used to be an industrious area.

Watch out for WalMart, there are a lot of s*x offenders who live in the woods behind there.

The crime rate is moderate. There are a few drug users and sellers, but most everybody is very nice and supporting. The schooling system is above average however. I like my town

The movie theatres aren't good place to go, the crew ships are really nice and the fishing is really good also. I wouldn't over all right cocoa Beach nine out of 10 stars

In this city the crime rate was average for a town this size. I enjoyed the scenery and the people who all seemed polite.

What stood out to me was the waterfront park. Not only are there beautiful views, there is plenty places to eat and shop.
