I haven't lived in Vero Beach for that long, it will be 2 years this summer, but so far I love it here. I'm originally from a small town in New England, and I am so glad that I no longer have to deal with the brutal winters. It is also such a change having the beach just a short walk away, instead of having to drive around 2 hours to get to one beach where there are so many people that you can't even move.

I am over in Indian River Shores, there is little to no crime anywhere. I feel safe walking around, even at night. Police are always minutes away.
Everyone is very friendly and nice, everyone takes care of their prperty and no one lives in a run down house
