Our 543 square miles contain beautiful white sandy beaches, groves of renowned Indian River citrus, immaculate oceanfront estates and riverfront communities plus an array of recreational and eco-friendly adventures for you and your family. Our balmy winters combine with the summer’s fresh ocean breezes to keep our average temperature a comfortable 74 degrees, perfect for swimming, golf or tennis year round.
