“We have friends who live on the other coast that stop at Oh Biscuit whenever they are near. It is a quirky local, mostly breakfast place. You have to check on the internet or call to be sure they are open as they seem to be closed whenever they want to be! To die for!”

Park
“Great park for a good walk. Feed the birds/turtles from the boardwalk, walk around the pond, walk through the wooded park, or enjoy its other amenities. #1 rated park on TripAdvisor for IHB, but while it's a good park, we prefer Ballard Park!”

Rental Car Location
“Enterprise has a desk at the Melbourne Intl. Airport like many others but you can save a bit by going to their offsite location. I have found them to consistently have the lowest prices.”

Mexican Restaurant
$$
“This is an upscale, farm-to-table, environmentally-conscious restaurant on the east end of downtown Melbourne known for its refined array of "green" and environmentally-friendly, but delectable selection of feel good food. Excellent for a romantic dinner or a relaxed outdoor lunch. The prices are a bit higher than the average eatery, but many people justify the value in the atmosphere, attentive wait-staff and the quality entrees. Best vegetarian dinner locally, we recommend the ratatouille.”

“The best homemade bagels around! You definitely want to get there early for the best selection because they sell out! Great bagel sandwiches, too! Less than 2 miles from our beach house!”
