I have just returned for Vero lago and it is wonderful. The development has been taken over by a large builder and they are doing a wonderful job. There development has many amenities and is a great value for people looking to relocate. The grounds are very well maintained and the people are very friendly. Vero lago also has some great values in real estate at this time with both a few exisiting homes (being sold under value) and fantastic new homes. Previous pst about Vero lago are not true and should be removed. Worth a visit

I live in Vero Beach. What people post is true.
The town and beaches are great. The housing is in a stall mod now. Yes the insurance is high and yes there isn't much for teenagers to do. Their is a lot of city and county parks for the small ones.
Their is things to do for retied people to do.
But don't expect to get a good job. There is very few and far between. So if you have the money and just hang out for you golden years this is the place quite and peaceful. Orlando and west Palm is about 1.5 hr away.
Good Luck on your move

The crime is bad, and there are so many very strange people into very strange "personal" practices, if you know what I mean. Just look up who owns some of the houses, like in Vero Lago, what a group of strange people!
Could you tell me what your mean? I do not understand. I have a good friend that lives in Vero lago and mostly seem like nice people with many police officers also living there. What do you mean by that comment? It does not appear to match what I see in this community.

Thank you for responding.

<quoted text>born and raised in vero...i agree w/the gal in tenn...vero is all about the money...those free parking lots and free beaches used to exist
amonst palmettos and between gated condos...its covered up...nothing much to do there...activities are for "being seen"...i could still live there if i wanted to..i dont...i hauled floridians left there...i prefer real people
The free beaches and their free parking still do exist. Most of the born n' raised Vero people seem like Confederate-flag wavin' bible thumpin' hicks anyway. Time to move on back up to Dixie and make way for new residents with teeth and family trees that actually branch.

So we are thinking on relocating to Florida. Looking for this to be our last move. Is Vero Beach slow? Or is there things to do to keep us busy like when we go into New York city for the day?

Yes north vero- Sebastian is the best area to live. I love Vero but you might also want to look into city like Stuart, Hobesound or Jensen beach, they're nice too, about 20-40 miles south of Vero.

Why are you focusing on Vero? Been there before? The areas with more activities are more crowed/congested so Vero is OK if you are all retired (high paying jobs are scarce for nonprofessionals) and don't require diverse recreational needs locally, and have a bundle to drop on (overpriced) real estate. A condo that I couldn't give away in 2000 for $65,000 now sells for 125,000. Quarter acre Lots in Sebastian (7 miles North) that were sitting around for years @ 10 grand are now priced at 70,000. Florida is an ideal paradise for 3 or 4 months (winter) and is a hot, bug infested swamp otherwise.
I have lived in Vero Beach 30 years. It is the most friendly, beautiful and least congested town in Florida. Hands down. There are pricey areas, sure, but I live in a quiet, reasonable neighborhood with no Home Association. Lots of sports for kids, beaches, churches. Downtown Friday, Children's Art Fair, Live theatre, it is Paradise,

Moved to Vero in January 2013..........everyone is old, no young people at all.
The snow birds are a pain in the butt but some in Vero like their money. I'd find someplace else.
