Suntree / Viera


Suntree / Viera Golf Links

Located in central Brevard County off Interstate 95, Suntree and Viera are two of the Space Coast's newest communities. More than 18,000 people reside in these adjoining areas, which once were mainly sod farms and cattle ranches. Since development started, these areas are growing by leaps and bounds. It is projected that by 2015, Viera alone will be a city of more than 40,000 residents.

In addition to shopping centers, restaurants, and other conveniences, Suntree and Viera are also known for their recreational retreats such as golf courses, parks, and nature preserves all located near neighborhoods. Other developments include the Veterans Administration Clinic, the Brevard County Government Services Complex, the Brevard County School District's administrative offices, just to name a few. A new Wal-Mart Super Center opened its doors in 2002 on land west of Interstate 95, where land has also been cleared for a major new shopping center and 16-screen, stadium seating movie theater.

Suntree and Viera also are great places for family fun. During the spring, Viera is home to the spring training complex of the Washington Nationals. And once the boys of summer have begun the regular season, Space Coast Stadium becomes home field for the Brevard County Manatees. In Suntree, visitors will find exotic species of plants and animals at the Brevard Zoo, where more than 400 animals representing 120 species reside.

Whether you're looking for attractive desirable neighborhoods, great golf, or family fun, Suntree and Viera have all that and more.
