"#2 Best Place to Buy in the Nation."

Balmy weather, low property taxes and a cost of living 3% lower than nearby West Palm Beach make this coastal town an affordable place to live with sandy shores and the best surfing on the East Coast.

"An Unsung Florida Gateway."
Vero Beach is a quiet gateway for the wealthy away from the flashy glitz of Miami and Palm Beach County. Vero's dual communities make for an interesting mix- there are kitschy seafood joints and biker bars alongside designer boutiques and fine dining.

Boating along the protected Indian River is popular among retirees in the area, and two inlets provide access to the Atlantic Ocean.
