There is no where quite like Vero Beach. As you cross the bridge and over the beautiful Indian River, you see the barrier island with its canopied oaks and the bright blue ocean on the horizon. Living in Vero Beach is a resort lifestyle amidst interesting and energetic people who appreciate the arts, the theatre and their livelihoods. It is a fabulous community.
