Known for its 25 miles of pristine oceanfront, Vero Beach is the epitome of “Old Florida”. Restrictive zoning allows the island to avoid cluttering the magnificent view of the Atlantic Ocean with high-rise hotels or large commercial centers. Its tranquil, residential atmosphere is treasured by locals, and makes it a very desirable spot to live.
On the barrier island’s western shores, the Indian River forms Vero Beach’s portion of the Intra-coastal Waterway. With its brackish waters, there’s always a show by the egrets, dolphins, manatees and killer sunsets. It’s also ideal for those who enjoy sailboats, motorboats and kayaks.
A boardwalk near the historic Jungle Trail, popular with joggers, cyclists and birdwatchers, on the northern portion of Vero’s barrier island provides public access to the refuge, where visitors can climb an 18-foot observation tower. The surrounding waters of the Indian River Lagoon, considered the most biologically diverse estuary in the United States, are also a draw for birders and paddlers.
The barrier island’s cultural offerings include exhibits at the Vero Beach Museum of Art, Broadway-caliber performances at Riverside Theater, art shows under live oak canopies throughout the year in Riverside Park and the beautiful McKee Botanical Gardens.
On Saturdays, enjoy the oceanside farmers market, filled with local produce, baked goods and more. Dining choices are abundant, offering something for everyone’s tastes.
