Things to Do in and Around Melbourne
Throughout the weekend, students might visit local attractions such as the beach, the Avenues at Viera (shopping and movies), historic downtown Melbourne, the Maxwell King Center for Performing Arts, Space Coast Stadium (Brevard Manatees and spring training for the Washington Nationals) and Kennedy Space Center.
Students enjoy bowling, local festivals, student-hosted holiday parties, and trips to Orlando to visit theme parks, malls, and museums. CIP has weekly activity meetings where students are involved in choosing and planning these events.
Space Coast Area Transit operates a public bus service in Melbourne area. The city subsidizes two routes so Melbourne residents ride for free. Orlando International Airport is one hour north of Melbourne and the Melbourne International Airport is 15 minutes away.
