Fantasy Lawns Inc. is located on  Merritt Island;  which is  unincorporated with No City Hall, Mayor or Police (Brevard County Sheriff), most islanders like it this way! We are part of  Historic Brevard County Florida   Slivered between the  Indian & Banana River  (Indian River Lagoon) just West of  Cocoa Beach  or just East  of Cocoa. We have  Titusville  just to the North and  Melbourne & Palm Bay  to our South and than our newest planned neiborhood area Viera in central Brevard FL, this area has some large shopping centers with the Avenue Viera as the center piece. 


Florida Fishing  is great, here on the Space-Coast live in a Fishing Paradise with the Indian & Banana River producing some of the best Trout, Red Fish & Snook Fishing on the East Coast. Out of Port Cape Canaveral  or as most say "the Port", is access to some great shore camping & fishing as well as off shore Salt Water Fishing  with Dolphin, Cobia, King Fish & Killer Bottom Fishing.

Our Local Parks  are among the best for family outings to relaxing by the water or to launch a boat. This is a  Wild Life Refuge area , where each winter numerous varieties of bird call this "home" We are also home to the  Florida Manatee (protected mammal) as this is a National Sanctuary.

Our largest source of economic income is  Tourist, driven to the Space Coast & Cocoa Beach, the Port Canaveral Cruise Terminal and SpaceX , with the Shuttle program retired in 2011.

Our area has some of the best  Surfing on the East Coast when the weather rolls in , with the world attention from a local "Kelly Slater" the waves aren't huge (unless a Hurricane is near) so it takes a lot of skill to work em'

This is a laid back area with a decent amount of "Nite Life" . We have the Port, Cocoa Village and Cocoa Beach . Those whom don’t mind a short 45 min drive can head to Orlando . Safe to mention the Kings Center in Melbourne which has some great shows & concerts. 

Travel to Daytona for Speed Week, Bike Week or Spring Break is about 45 Min. drive.

Tampa is about 2.5 Hours. Miami is 3 Hours & Key West is an easy 6.5 Hour drive.

Florida is a Major Professional & College Sports State.
Football with have the Miami Dolphins, Tampa Bay Bucceneers and Jacksonville Jaguars

Nascar provides us with 3 Winston Cup Races, with the "Granddaddy" Daytona 500, Pepsi 400 and then the Pennzoil 400 in Homestead.  
Spring season brings many Major League Baseball Teams to our Vero Area.

This is also the "Retirement State" with NO State Income Tax, alot of "white heads" drive our roads, so drive with patience!
We have lots of public Golf Courses in our area.

We are the "Sunshine State". We are also the "Lighting Capital" of the World with over 800 yearly. Tropical Storms, Tornados & Hurricanes is part of our Weather.

We are the "Bug Capital" of America with the Mosquito heading the pack, then there is the "Love Bug"  myth has it that they were produced by University of Florida, to eat Mosquito larva is un-true. All they do is ....well the name says it, when they mate its can be like a drive thru a snow flurry on 95 (they are attracted to Carbon Dioxide)
