Indian River County, Florida

Indian River County

Indian River County is blessed with an excellent selection of small town communities offering differing lifestyles and the very best of what makes Florida great.

Indian River County River covers an area of 511 square miles located approximately 190 miles south of Jacksonville and 135 miles north of Miami on Florida's east coast. In 1997, Indian River County and Vero Beach, the county seat, had populations of 104,605 and 17,787 respectively.

Indian River County offers a wide variety of choices, from the sophisticated coastal barrier island communities on the east to the rural, agricultural city of Fellsmere on the west. Residents in between love the small town atmosphere, and they relish all of options this beautiful community offers.  It's easy to see why Disney chose the area for its "Old Florida" style seaside Vero Beach Resort, with spacious inn and villa accommodations surrounded by the legendary quality, service, and imagination that you've come to expect from Disney.

What the communities all have in common is their casual, laid-back nature. They also have a sense of pride about their communities. Citizens' architectural committees, for example, are more than names on a letterhead in their commitment to keep their neighborhoods beautiful. Streets are kept clean. Medians are free of weeds. grass is trimmed at the curbs. The live oak trees that grace so much of the county's landscape are protected by an active citizenry. The tall, leafy trees, forming canopies over the streets, symbolize both a sense of caring and substance.

Indian River County offers a pleasant, easy-going lifestyle, in sharp contrast to the hectic pace of Florida's more urban areas. Communities are attractive. It is truly a good place to raise a family. Schools are notable; in fact, excellent.  Health care is state of the art with more leading edge facilities on the way. The level of culture is exceedingly diverse. The Indian River Mall and neighboring retail centers Horizon Outlet Center and Vero Beach Oceanside Shops make shopping exceptional...and it's getting better all the time. Restaurants give local people some fine dining choices. By reputation, they also attract out-of-town patrons.

Beautiful beaches and beach parks appeal to both residents and tourists. For nature lovers, a bike ride on the Jungle Trail is most satisfying. Sports fans can look forward to Spring Training when the Los Angeles Dodgers come back to Holman Stadium. Golfers have the prospect of year-round, world-class golf.  A hospitable boating community and diverse waterways give fishermen reason to think they have found Paradise.
