About Vero Beach
The charming seaside community of Vero Beach, incorporated in 1919, is the county seat of Indian River County. The county was established in 1925, having formerly existed as part of St. Lucie County. Its first settlement dates back to the early 1880s.
Vero Beach represents twelve square miles within the county, and offers 23 miles of sandy beach along the Atlantic Ocean. Approximately 327,000 acres in the county is used for agricultural purposes with the largest percentage in pastures and ranges, followed by citrus acreage, row crops, forest acres and woodlands.
This warm and welcoming town is geographically divided by the scenic Indian River, with the land east of the river referred to as the barrier island (beachside), and the land west of the river, the mainland.
The beachside offers quality restaurants, specialty shops and boutiques, the nationally recognized Center for the Arts and the Riverside Theater. Banks, professional services, medical offices, churches and gourmet beach markets are all available to those residing on the beach side. The Indian River Memorial Hospital is located just over the bridge off of Indian River Boulevard.
Aside from the offering the finest citrus in the world, Vero Beach is the spring training camp for the famous Los Angeles Dodgers.
