Area Attractions

Opening Doors

Sometimes uncertain times require a fresh approach, even to fresh produce. Brittany Swartz, manager of the Farmers Market Oceanside, created the Farmers Market drop off program to ensure that local artisans could get their products to customers, without anyone having to leave the safety of home.

Cycling and Recycling

Cycling is an excellent way both to explore and get exercise. In the Vero Beach community, it also provides the opportunity to give back.

A Stable Environment

Winston Churchill famously said, “There is something about the outside of a horse that is good for the inside of a man.” Those who have experienced that special bond with an equine companion, like the team at BG Equestrian, would certainly agree.

Outlining the Inlet

It's hard to imagine a time when the Sebastian Inlet didn't connect the Indian River Lagoon to the Atlantic Ocean. Today's peaceful waters belie the inlet's storied past.

Flying Wright

Vero Beach justifiably boasts of one of the most active general aviation communities in the nation.

Brevard Zoo

This 50-acre community zoo features animals from Florida and around the world.

City Of Sebastian Skate Park

The 7,700-square-foot street course skating area is open to the public for skateboards, in-line skates and quad skates.

Fort Drum Crystal Mine

A location to search for fossils and minerals, including ancient calcified marine clam shells with large amber crystals.

Kennedy Space Center

NASA’s launch headquarters features exhibits and hands-on experiences, including guided tours of the launch area and facility and IMAX movies.

It Takes a Village

Jay McLaughlin knows something about celebrity. The last time he was featured in a Vero Beach Magazine article in March 2010, we called him a “fashion king.” At the time, the New York-based fashion designer and high-end retail mogul was the “new” news in town thanks to his purchase and renovation of a Vero Beach home and the opening of J. McLaughlin, a women’s clothing store on Ocean Drive.

Indian River Citrus Museum

The museum showcases the area’s grove culture and displays the artifacts, photographs and memorabilia of the pioneers who established the most popular citrus fruit in the world, Indian River grapefruit.
