Tucked away just off Highway 520, you would never know that Cocoa Village even existed if it wasn't for the gigantic sign pointing the way. The city of Cocoa, Florida on Brevard County's mainland (no relation to Cocoa Beach, which is further east) is made up of crisscrossing highways. But the city's origins started in the little Cocoa Village, the nickname locals gave to the area's downtown and historic district. It's not hard to see how the district earned its "Village" moniker with narrow pedestrian-friendly streets and giant shady oak trees.

Large oak trees provide plenty of shade over the shops along Brevard Avenue.

Cocoa was originally founded by fishermen on the banks of the Indian River. The fishermen are long gone, but a great deal of the early twentieth-century architecture remains. Today, Cocoa Village's most famous industry is its art galleries. Other businesses include retail such as antiques, home decor, gift shops, and other boutiques. But you won't find a single chain store here. Also, several excellent restaurants are in the area and they range from the casual to the pricier fine dining.

Cocoa Village's Main Street is Brevard Avenue although numerous shops and restaurants are also located on side streets, including Oleander Street, Harrison Street, and Stone Street. Several antique stores and restaurants are located on State Route 520 where it meets Brevard Avenue, but be careful as this area is not as pedestrian friendly as the rest of Cocoa Village. The town is loaded with signs pointing the way to various shopping, eateries, and attractions. As you head further south on Brevard Avenue, away from Route 520, you'll find City Hall, some parking lots, and banks. But don't turn around yet. There are several more shops south of this area. Just follow the signs.

Boutiques occupy the many historic buildings in Cocoa Village.

Cocoa Village is a fun town with numerous unique shops and restaurants in a village-like atmosphere. The huge overgrown oak trees provide a lot of shade on a hot summer day. Unfortunately, like many towns in Florida, the stores are closed on Sundays and in the evenings, which doesn't leave much time for shopping. Restaurants, clubs, and the Cocoa Village Playhouse are open in the evenings which provides the town with some nightlife. However, this town would be wise to consider Sunday hours.

Retail Hours

Most stores are open until 5:00 p.m. Monday through Saturday but closed on Sundays.

Parking

Plenty of free parking is available both on street and scattered on several small lots around town. Unfortunately most parking is limited to three hours.

The Cocoa Village Playhouse (300 Brevard Avenue, 321-636-5050) features theater, dance productions, and live music.

Riverfront Park, just two blocks east of Brevard Avenue sits along the Indian River. It includes a playground, gazebo, the Cocoa Civic Center, and the historic Porcher House.

Events

Cocoa Village is known for its arts scene. On the first Saturday in April and November over a dozen galleries participate in the Gallery Walk held from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m., featuring exhibits and demonstrations in the stores and on the streets. Most stores are open during the event.

There is also an Art and Craft Fair held on the first weekend in March, the third weekend in May, the third weekend in October, and the first weekend in December.

Every year the city throws a Cocoa Village Mardi Gras festival.

Location

Cocoa Village is about 50 miles east of Orlando, Florida.

From I-95, take exit 201 for Florida State Route 520 East toward Cocoa Beach. Continue heading east for about four and a half miles. Turn right at Brevard Avenue.
