Vero Beach, Florida is located along Florida’s Treasure Coast midway between Jacksonville and Miami. With an inviting tropical climate, Vero Beach is the perfect location for golf, water sports and outdoor activities throughout the year.
The City of Vero beach was originally called “Vero” in 1891. It wasn’t until 1925 that the name was officially changed to “Vero Beach”.
The city radiates a cultural wealth. The $2.5 million Center for the Arts is the largest combination art museum and teaching facility in the entire State of Florida. Riverside Theater, a 630 seat facility, is the only professional Equity theater on the Treasure Coast.
Stately live oak trees form a canopy over many of the residential streets while an abundance of colorful oleander, hybiscus, and bougainvillia lend to the tropical atmosphere. For an unusual experience, come see the manatee during the winter months as they seek the warmth of the water at the Vero Beach Municipal Power Plant.
The serene atmosphere enveloping Vero Beach provides a background for a wide range of recreational activity – both active and passive. Vero Beach is the smallest city in the nation to have its own professional baseball team. The Dodgers have been an integral part of the community since 1948 when they arrived here.
The municipal park system includes 4 beach front parks and major recreation centers at both Riverside Park and Leisure Square.
