Grant

Grant

Nestled against the Indian River in the southern portion of Brevard County, Grant is best known for its Seafood Festival, an annual event in February which is Florida's oldest and longest continuous seafood festival. The festival, which features some of the finest eats along the Atlantic, attracts more than 50,000 seafood lovers each year.

The town's population of 392 have easy access to outdoor activities such as golf, boating, water sports and fishing. The river plays a major role in Grant's economy and history and local commercial fishing operations supply the many crab and oyster houses along Highway U.S.1. with fresh seafood.

Featuring the Grant Historical House, Fisherman’s Landing is a pleasant local park with a scenic 630’ riverfront boardwalk, picnic area and fishing, not to mention a fantastic view of the river.

Given its location and history steeped in the fishing industry, there is no question why Grant is one of the Space Coast's capitals of seafood. From the annual Seafood Festival to the everyday great hook and line opportunities, Grant is definitely an outdoorsman's dream.
