Vero Beach transportation part 2

Real Estate Agent with Peters Cook & Company

Flying In?
Vero Beach and Sebastian each have muncipal airports that are open to general aviation traffic. If you are flying in by private plane, please don't depend on high density or skyscrapers to guide your way. More likely you'll just see the sea, the river and lots of tree tops!
The Vero Beach Municipal Airport received the 1995 General Aviation Airport of the Year Award from the Florida Department of Transportation. The winning airport is selected based upon accomplishments in the areas of airport facilities improvements, airfield safety and security, aesthetics, and management. Commercial air service is available from Melbourne, (located 25 miles north of Sebastian), Orlando or West Palm Beach.

One if by land...
Interstate 95 and U.S. 1 both provide north/south travelers access to the eastern side of the county on the mainland. Route A1A runs the entire length of the barrier island, from Brevard County in the north (Sebastian Inlet) to St. Lucie County in the south (north of the Ft. Pierce Inlet).
Two if by Sea...
The Indian River Lagoon, a part of the Intracoastal waterway, is the "access by sea". Cruise on in from either the Sebastian or Ft. Pierce Inlets. To make life easier on both yachtsmen and motorists, a new high span bridge opened in Vero Beach in the summer of 1995 replacing the drawbridge.
Our county is sometimes discovered by international or out-of-state yachtsmen who arrive via the Indian River. It's been known to happen that some who put into port for a night fall under the spell of our area and become part-time or permanent residents.

No matter how you arrive, there, on the opposite shore will be someone to make you feel welcome in Indian River County.
