Natural resources have been so carefully protected in Vero Beach, Fellsmere, and Sebastian that our extensive park system and special ecological wonders delight both young and old. With “water, water everywhere” and 26 miles of pristine ocean beaches, Indian River County is an eco-tourist’s dream. Kayaking and canoeing through protected preserves offer a uniquely serene experience. Spend a day fishing in the river or ocean. Explore a different park every day of the month. The opportunities are boundless. The Indian River Lagoon is the most environmentally diverse estuary in North America. Exploring by kayak or canoe allows up-close views of the magnificent wildlife. The Sebastian River is another favored destination, with miles of lush jungle waterways.
