It's more like suburbs with a few streets of a walkable downtown like area and a secondary smaller walkable area near the Eau Gallie causeway. It is not like the other places you mentioned. It's an ok place to raise a family and the past few years has brought some restaurant & bar growth but many people who live there will drive to Orlando for entertainment.
This^^^^^^ is my vibe and I was in Melbourne 2X in the last 30 days.

Its just like all east coast FL small towns (Sebastian/Melbourne/New Smyrna Beach all kind of blend together. One plus, Melbourne has a decent size airport.
