Titusville is also known for the highest point in the USA that you can skydive from, which I believes 18,000 feet! Not that I would ever do it, I am too much of a chicken shit! Us kids bought a package for our mama when she turned 60 to tandem jump and nope none of us wanted to join her. Maybe one day I will do it.
I am going to say that no matter how big or small a town is, there is always going to be that small-town drama. Everyone will eventually know someone who knows someone who said something about no one. I have been visiting Titusville for over 15 years now and I have seen small changes and big changes like any other city has and it may or may not even affect you or you may not even care if it did. I have seen a mall in its prime then go bye-bye and another shopping center with even trendier store come, and I have seen stores pop up on this corner and that. I know that this is everywhere you go but in Titusville, it just seems strange the way things slowly come and go. I noticed on some Facebook Titusville pages there are people that are part of the groups that will bitch and complain about everything! Then again, I'm sure it's everywhere.
Down the road, a little bit from "downtown" Titusville is the town of Mims and the White Sands Buddhist Center which has beautiful large statues and serene and peaceful grounds to walk around. Definitely visit there if you're near. It is a wonderful place to sit and reflect and meditate. I feel nothing but joy and peace whenever I go.
Titusville is a charming town with a mall, tons of small businesses, a marina, history, and great people sprinkled with snowbirds and new friends. It's okay that there isn't a chic-fil-a or tons of traffic. It's been a great place to be. Now it's time to move on. I love you Titusville.
