Since the early 1920's, the charming seaside town of Vero Beach and its adjoining sister community, Indian River Shores, have been recognized as two of Florida's most prestigious and affluent winter communities.

Vero Beach was named the 'best little town in Florida and 12th in the nation,' by the Rating Guide to Life in America's Small Cities. Indian River Shores is consistently among the highest rated communities in Worth Magazine's top 100 affluent communities in the U.S.

The Vero Beach area is home to fine restaurants, specialty shops, art galleries and parks; and throughout the season, a lively cultural calendar includes professional performances at two theaters with the Center for the Arts offering a full schedule of events, exhibitions, workshops and classes.
