"The atmosphere in this town has been so warm and welcoming. We just like it"
John Pearsall, President/CEO of Elite Airways, addressing the Vero Beach City Council
Indian River County has a friendly, unpretentious atmosphere. Centrally located 70 miles south of the Kennedy Space Center and an hour’s drive north of West Palm Beach, our 543 square miles contain 26 miles of unspoiled beaches, groves of renowned Indian River grapefruit, immaculate oceanfront estates and riverfront communities - free from urban sprawl and congestion. We are located within a 3-hour drive of 17.9 million potential customers - 90% of Florida’s population.
The county also offers:
access to other Florida markets as well as national and international markets via interstate highways and multimodal transportation
advanced industries from aviation/aerospace to aquaculture
world-renowned agricultural products and recreational opportunities
research, emerging tech, life sciences and specialty healthcare industries
All of the above in one of the most desirable climates in the country, for recreation and for business. Our unique setting includes an emphasis on low scale buildings, plenty of free access to public beaches, and a host of community amenities. Relatively low labor costs and inexpensive building sites, plus the absence of state income tax, continue to attract industry.
