The differences are subtle. You'll only really notice it on cold winter nights when it gets much colder even slightly inland. That's why Indialantic has numerous healthy coconut palms and Melbourne, Palm Bay, West Melbourne, etc. don't. For heat, there is absolutely no climate difference.
Have to strongly agree here with this comment above. As per temperature differences & different humidity levels between the beach area and W. Melbourne, well, it is really a moot subject. There really is no change, though it does vary a slight bit The real big difference between the beach area & the flood plain area is the bugs (mosquitoes to be direct), but as per weather & humidity, it is just plain moot.

If you have a concern about humidity BEFORE you even move to FL, you have a very high chance of it driving you out of the state. Humidity can be an issue for 7-9 months some years. A major reason people leave.

Absolute truth posted here. I am a 5th generation Floridian and I still dislike the humidity here in central FL alone. South FL is worse than here, but all in all, it is like steam cooker hear at least 3 - 4 months of the year and warm the rest of the year. Winter here is pretty much moot. You are lucky to get at least a month of solid cold weather (30 degrees average). A super cool down for us...LOL!

I have lived in Palm Bay and Merritt Island. It seems to rain more and be windier, than Palm Bay. As far as the humidity and heat, well, its everywhere.

I don't much like high humidity (I lived in the desert in the South West for some years) but I can tolerate high temperatures quite happily.

We have air conditioning (I expect most people do ) but we also have a de-humidifier and during the day (when it's warm and humid) I use that first (relying on AC only when it gets too hot [for my wife.])

I haven't done a full summer here yet (nor do I intend to do so) but I did live in Mississippi for 18 months. 90 degrees and 90% humidity is mean!

'Sea breeze effect' (If you live near the coast) will help, but in summer, it's going to be hot and sticky wherever you are.

As Jdoty said: "The changes are really only apparent when comparing Orlando to Melbourne."

If there was a large temperature gradient over a few miles (and there is not) there would be hellacious winds! It doesn't happen.

The sea breeze effect air is not going to be significantly more humid than that 10 miles inland ... you'd need to go a bit further inland to see a real difference (and the humidity inland would probably be higher ... the ocean temperature is usually lower than the land temperature.

The climate in Florida is sub-tropical maritime. Slightly (but not a great deal) cooler near the coast and slightly (but not a great deal) warmer on the West coast than on the Atlantic coast.
