Indian River County is a county in the U.S. state of Florida, and was formed on May 30, 1925. As of 2000, 112,947 people lived there. Its county seat is Vero Beach.
Indian River County manages to strike a balance between rural pleasures and high productivity, creating a dynamic environment unique even to Florida. In fact, one of the largest privately owned companies in the state is headquartered in Vero Beach. Newcomers to Indian River County will be impressed with the number of Florida attractions that are close to home. In addition to the world-renowned “Bass Fishing Capital” of Lake Okeechobee in south-central Florida, the popular destinations of Disney World, Cape Kennedy, and Miami are only a two-hour drive away. Beautiful Palm Beach lies 30 minutes away to the south. For spectacular getaways, the Bahamas and the Caribbean Islands are a few boating hours to the east.
Providing 23 miles of panoramic beachfront access along Florida’s Atlantic Ocean coastline, Indian River County is home to beautiful beaches, immaculate waterfront communities, and endless orange and grapefruit groves. The county’s coastal barrier island communities have retained the small-town charm for which the region is so famous. While some corners of the county are experiencing rapid growth, large expanses of undeveloped land preserve an open atmosphere. This unspoiled environment was one of the factors that led Disney to select Indian River County for its “Old Florida” seaside Vero Beach Resort.
Beautiful Indian River County harmonizes an enviable lifestyle with a dynamic economy, offering charming communities that foster a family oriented environment. This “Sailfish Capital of the World” is home to miles of pristine beaches and meticulously maintained beach parks for public enjoyment. Swimming, scuba diving, boating, fishing, and other water sports are common pastimes. The serene waterscapes of the Sebastian and Indian Rivers combine with deep woodlands and sprawling fields to ensure an endless array of recreational adventures. Nature enthusiasts will find miles of trails for hiking and biking, while sports fans can look forward to the spring training season with the arrival of the Los Angeles Dodgers. Golfers can choose from an incredible selection of premier courses. Water sports are unparalleled in Indian River County, where the Intracoastal Waterway of the Indian River Lagoon provides ocean access. A number of local residents first discovered Indian River County as boaters who arrived via the river and fell under the spell of this panoramic, peaceful region.
Throughout the county are fine museums, elegant theaters, popular restaurants, pulsating nightspots, and eclectic shopping districts. The Mel Fisher Treasure Museum in Sebastian allows visitors to learn about the preservation techniques for recovered treasure from the ocean floor. Those who are interested in the ecological balance of the region will want to explore the Environmental Learning Center on an island skirted by the Indian River Lagoon. Just south of the Wabasso Bridge, the 51-acre site offers indoor and outdoor laboratories and classrooms, exhibit areas, guided nature walks through mangrove forests, and canoe trips.
