I have a love/ Hate with Sebastian FL. I am 21 years old There are a few night spots LIKE 3. Therefore not much to do for nightlife but, I like that it's a quite community for the most part. The people in this community are friendly and helpful. The stores are not crowded. The crime rate is low and local law enforcement are very nice and helpful. I love the some of the local restaurants. Expectably the ones on the water so relaxing. There's always somethin going on at Riverside Park. Usually for the older crowed though.
This is my town small, friendly, and a little boring.

Lots of places to eat food and bars, not a great amount of entertainment. I've lived here nearly all my life, and there's nothing to do. If you do want something to do, you have to go over to Vero Beach and you can head to their downtown area or historical dodgertown or the beach!
It's a very nice place to live, especially for older people or retirees. There's many things to do around town, especially for families. Infrastructure has been deteriorating in recent years, but the city seems to have recently begun revamping the infrastructure, especially the canals.
