   Vero Beach on Florida's Treasure Coast. VBFL                               

    Vero Beach Florida is situated in the midst of great natural beauty. The Gulf Stream carrying warm Caribbean currents contributes to the desirable climate and comfortable sandy beaches.  The Indian River Lagoon and Aquatic Preserve provide may beautiful vistas and habitats for wildlife as well as humans. Pelican Island, Sebastian River, Archie Carr  National Wildlife Refuge, and many state and local parks (IRC parks) (COVB parks) offer exceptional opportunities to enjoy the vast natural resources of the area. 

    The Lagoon is part of the  National Estuary Program. To the north the Lagoon opens to the Atlantic at Sebastian Inlet (Sebastian Inlet Cam) (Sebastian Inlet Pictures).  The Lagoon Itself is a wonderful diverse habitat populated with beautiful "Spoil Islands". To the South the Lagoon opens to the Atlantic at Fort Pierce Inlet      (Indian River Lagoon pictures)

    The area is often referred to as the Treasure Coast because treasure ships carrying precious materials would be lost off shore.  After obtaining (by what ever means necessary) precious metals and gems from the the natives in South America the booty would need to be hauled back to Portugal, Spain and England. Heavily laden treasure ships would travel north in the Gulf Stream before making the crossing to Europe in the North Atlantic.  Hurricanes or other major storms would sometimes blow the ships toward shore and wreck them against the reefs.   Although some of the wrecks have been located and salvaged there are still reports of "finds" in the area. 

    Vero Beach has beautiful sandy beaches whose personality changes with the seasons.  The calm summer months often result in clear blue green waters all the way to shore. Stormy months often result in larger waves pounding the shoreline and changing the sand formations on the beach as the tide rises and falls.   The Wind, Waves, Sun, Clouds and Wildlife paint a beautiful ever changing  environment.

    There are two well built concrete bridges that cross over the inter coastal waterway.   The inter coastal waterway allows north and south boat traffic to travel in the sheltered waters of the Indian River Lagoon. The Bridges are high enough to allow sailboats with tall masts to pass underneath without obstructing vehicular traffic. At the east end of the Merril P. Barber Bridge, the City operates a marina popular among traveling boaters.  Also at the East end of the Barber bridge you will find The Riverside Theatre, Vero Beach Art Museum and  Riverside Park . Just to the north  not far off A1A  the Vero Beach Boardwalk.  Crossing the 17th St, E Causeway Bridge will take you to Vero's Beautiful South Beach.
