Vero Beach is perfectly situated on Florida’s Treasure Coast between Palm Beach and the Kennedy Space Center in the world famous citrus producing region of Indian River County. By car, Palm Beach is about an hour away and Orlando is about an hour and a half away. Known as the “Gateway to the Tropics,” Vero Beach is located in a climatic transition zone that offers an unusual mix of vegetation found in the coastal Carolinas – ancient oak trees and pine forests – blended with swaying palms and colorful blooms typical of the tropics.

There are 15 golf courses, 40 tennis courts, 20 racquetball courts, 3 theaters, 2 cinemas, 60 restaurants, 60 churches, 4 museums, a botanical garden, a baseball and football stadium, boutique shopping, as well as malls and outlet malls.
