The Florida Coast is rich in history, and the city of Cocoa is no exception. Located in Florida's Brevard County, Cocoa was founded by fishermen in the late 1800s. The town grew by leaps and bounds and after the post office was built in 1881, the population began to grow quickly. While the origin of the town's name is still a mystery, there is no mystery as to why people love to be in Cocoa. Many call Cocoa a fishing community, but it has a lot more to offer its residents year-round. Thanks to the small town charm and sandy beaches, Cocoa is must see-destination that many call home for a lifetime.
