What Bert Has To Say About Sebastian-Vero Beach Metro Area

Sebastian and Vero Beach are among the few remaining Florida East Coast places maintaining a small-town flavor not overly tilted towards tourists or retirees. They are attractive, quiet, and somewhat upscale communities with typical barrier islands, small downtown areas, a few subdivisions and resorts nearby, and wild marshlands to the west. Retirees, snowbirds, citrus agriculture, and fishing support the area economy. There is a small amount of manufacturing, but future job growth projections are only modest. The area comes with some of the traditional leisure amenities of a Florida coastal city, but compared to other places up and down the coast, there isn’t much to do.
