Vero Beach is in an area known as the "Treasure Coast." The name "Treasure Coast" is derived from a number of ships of Spanish galleons (especially those of the 1715 Spanish treasure fleet) that wrecked off the coast during the 17th and 18th centuries. Artifacts from these ships have been recovered in the past fifty years, both by amateur and professional treasure-hunters. It is estimated though, that only 30% of the wreckage has been found.

The Treasure Coast is the commonly used term for a region in the U.S. state of Florida stretching from south of Hobe Sound in the south to north of Sebastian in the north, including all of the coastal counties of Indian River, St. Lucie, and Martin.

Vero Beach, FL LocatinA charming seaside community... Washed by the Atlantic Ocean, Vero Beach has been described as "a charming seaside village". The city of 20,000 residents encompasses 11 square miles and is the county seat of Indian River County. The county's population is approximately 100,000 residents.

The low-rise, un-crowded atmosphere is the result of smart building restrictions (no more than 3-stories on the beach) and concern for the environment. The charming seaside community of Vero Beach is geographically divided by the scenic Indian River with the land east of the river referred to as the beachside, and the land west of the river, the mainland. The beachside dining and shopping area offers quaint restaurants, specialty shops and boutiques, the nationally recognized Vero Beach Museum of Art and Riverside Theater, banking, professional services, doctors' offices, churches and gourmet beach markets without traveling over either of the two bridges to the mainland. The Indian River Medical Center is located just over the bridge off Indian River Boulevard.
