Make a holiday apartment in Melbourne your home away from home

Holiday accommodation in Melbourne is perfectly positioned centrally to access many of the attractions Florida has to offer. HomeAway.co.uk has a whole host of holiday apartments to choose from, most with access to a pool or the beach, and almost all air-conditioned. Holiday apartments and villas in Melbourne also typically come with washer/dryer, dishwasher, BBQ facilities, satellite or cable TV and a DVD player. Only an hour outside Orlando, Melbourne is convenient for transportation but, more importantly, all the central Florida theme parks.

Things to do

-Beaches: With more beaches than you can shake a bucket and spade at, Melbourne holiday apartment guests are really spoiled for choice. Melbourne Beach itself is a separate municipality lying on the far side of the barrier island across the intervening Intracoastal Waterway.

-Historic sites: Melbourne has a history dating back to freed slave pioneers founding the settlement just after the civil war in 1867. There's a number of listed historic buildings dating from the turn of the 20th century and even earlier, which are positively ancient by American standards.

-Nightlife: Melbourne's nightlife runs the gamut from laid back fishermen's hangouts, to cool beach joints and brewpubs, to high energy late night dance clubs, live music venues and cigar bars. Dining-wise, you can trough down at a crab shack or dress up for fine dining. There's so much variety there's something for everyone.

-Theme parks: Nearby Orlando (about an hour's drive away) is well known for its theme parks. While Epcot, Disney's Magic Kingdom, and Universal Studio's Islands of Adventure are the big three, Legoland deserves a mention, as does Discovery Cove, where only 1,300 guests per day can interact with dolphins, rays, tropical fish and sea otters.

-Space coast: The entire coast around here is often referred to as the Space Coast, thanks to the proximity of Kennedy Space centre. There's many sites to explore, but particular favourites close to your Melbourne holiday rental are the Rocket Garden, the Atlantis Exhibit, the Kennedy Space Centre Visitor Complex, and the Kennedy Spaceport Launch Complex.

-Blue Cypress Conservation Area: For some recreational diversity, you can make an enjoyable day excursion to Blue Cypress Conservation Area. Activities include fishing, boating, airboating, hiking and mountain biking among many miles of levees, and canoeing. If you want to stay longer than a day, there are primitive campsites available, which means no electricity or running water.

Weather in Melbourne

With a humid subtropical climate, Melbourne can get fairly hot in the long summers, but not unmanageably so. Temperatures in the mid 30s Celsius can be common, but the drop into the low 20s during the short, mild winters. The wet season is the summer, however, but precipitation is mostly of the intense thunderstorm variety, so doesn't really interfere too much with your holiday.

Travel to Melbourne

Melbourne has its own international airport and Greyhound station, though flights into Orlando are particularly convenient at just an hour's drive away, they fly directly in from Europe, whereas to get to Melbourne International Airport, you' have to change planes (the 'international' moniker is earned from flights to the Bahamas). Orlando also has the nearest Amtrak station, though it's far more convenient to fly and drive in Florida.
