Oh my yes! Vero Beach is a small town in the very best sense of the phrase. However, we have many amenities that are usually associated with larger cities.
We are only a hour and a half from Disney and the location where Disney brings their visitors for an oceanfront beach experience at the Vero Beach Disney Resort. You don't have to be a Disney guest to enjoy our beaches, however! We have several oceanfront parks, places to eat, and lots of free parking to make your trip to beach effortless and FUN.
For now we have Dodger Spring Training. Reports have it that we will probably lose the Dodgers to some place closer to their current California home, however, we are actively pursuing another professional baseball team when and if that happens.
We also have children's theatre, dance, and art classes. Vero Beach loves children!
As I drove back to my home from the office today, I was careful to drive slowly on our neighborhood streets because of the children on bikes and roller blades on their way around the block.
