About Vero Beach
Vero Beach was rated the “Best Small Town in Florida and 12th in the Nation” and was named one of “The 100 Best Art Towns in America”. It is known as the “Gateway to the Tropics.” It is located in a climatic transition zone that offers an unusual mix of vegetation. It has ancient oak trees and pine forests- blended with swaying palms and colorful blooms typical of the tropics.
The name “Treasure Coast” is derived from a number of ships of Spanish galleons (especially those of the 1715 Spanish treasure fleet) that wrecked off the coast during the 17th and 18th centuries. Artifacts from these ships have been recovered in the past fifty years, both by amateur and professional treasure-hunters. This provides some very unique diving for those who are interested
It is home to some of the Florida’s most exclusive private golf clubs. They include Red Stick, John’s Island, Indian River Club, Vero Beach Country Club, Quail Valley and others as well as challenging public courses such as Sandridge Golf Club.
Vero Beach is a neighbor to the Sabastian Inlet. There you have access to the Atlantic Ocean as well as the Indian River. You can spend a day at the inlet and you are sure to see the dolphins play!! The inlet is known to host national surfing contests. It is also known to be one of the most popular fishing areas in Florida.
The Treasure Coast is one of the most active sea turtle nesting grounds in the world. During turtle season you will discover several new burial sites. When in hatching season you may get lucky and actually see the baby turtles heading toward the sea. The greatest treasure of all is it home to the most pristine beaches up and down the east coast.
