The Small Town In Florida You’ve Never Heard Of But Will Fall In Love With
Vero Beach is a city located on Florida’s east coast, about 130 miles north of Miami. Although it only has 15,000 residents, there are so many things to see and do that you’ll never get bored. Most people outside the area don’t know anything about this town, but there are quite a few reasons to visit this underrated Florida beach town:
Vero Beach might just be the perfect town. With around 15,000 residents, it isn't too big or too small.
There's plenty to do, whether you're the outdoorsy type or you prefer artsy entertainment. One of Florida's most beautiful historic gardens, McKee Botanical Garden, is right here in Vero Beach.
If you want something a little more thrilling, there are several airboat companies (like Florida Cracker Airboat Rides & Guide Service, which is pictured here) that will take you on an unforgettable tour of Vero Beach's unique wildlife and scenery.
Of course, there are also plenty of gorgeous Treasure Coast beaches and parks in the area that folks of all ages can enjoy. Pictured is South Beach Park.
