Visit Vero Beach: America’s Fourth Happiest Seaside Town!

fourth happiest seaside townSummer on America’s coasts is something spectacular, whether you’re basking in Atlantic sunlight, catching a wave on a Pacific swell, or relaxing with a couple lines in the water at one of the Great Lakes. A plethora of little towns dot our nation’s coastlines, but all these sweet cities and quaint getaways are not created equal. All of us here at Dependable Mitsubishi are a bit partial to our hometown, but the results are in, and it is now confirmed that Vero Beach is a cut above the rest. Coastal Living has just named Vero Beach the fourth happiest seaside town in the country!

To determine which seaside town is happiest, Coastal Living solicited nominations through social media and then went on to compare those nominations to the towns ranking on the Gallup-Sharecare Well-Being Index, percentage of clear and sunny days, the overall healthiness of the beaches, crime statistics, walkability, standard of living, and editorial input on the “coastal vibe” of each town. After assessing these factors carefully, Vero Beach snagged the fourth happiest seaside town title, beating out Cannon Beach, Oregon; Bellport, New York; Hampton Beach, New Hampshire; Cambria, California; Anna Maria, Florida; and Bluffton, South Carolina.

Congratulations to all the happy citizens, local leaders, and visitors of Vero Beach!

The Fourth of July celebrates American independence, and there are a number of things to do in Vero Beach this year to mark the occasion. From fireworks and special events to backyard barbecues, there’s truly something for everyone, so get outside this Fourth of July and celebrate with your community.

There are multiple Fourth of July events planned for the Treasure Coast, including fireworks displays. For example, on July 2nd, there will be Shuckers’s Fireworks on Hutchinson Island. Shuckers is a local restaurant and bar, and there will be live music from 2pm to 6pm for the celebration. Fireworks will begin at dusk on the beach over the water. There’s a Chow Down Food Trucks River Walk from 5pm to 9:30pm in Fort Pierce, where there is also going to be the Stars Over St. Lucie Fourth of July Celebration in Marina Square from 6pm to 9:30pm.

For those who want to stay close to home, there’s a Vero Beach Annual Fourth of July Celebration at Riverside Park. There will be food, entertainment, and family friendly activities, with fireworks starting around 9pm. People will begin to show up around 4pm, so feel free to bring a picnic blanket and some games to make a day of the Fourth of July celebration.

No matter what you decide to do, we at Dependable Mitsubishi wish everyone a happy Fourth of July!

The Outlander comes with a spacious interior, providing plenty of seating for up to seven passengers and loads of cargo space to ensure you don’t run out of storage. The Outlander also has a powerful engine that doesn’t waste fuel, something any driver can enjoy.

There are tons of day trips you can take around Vero Beach, according to Trip Advisor, and these are just some that we at Dependable Mitsubishi recommend. For those who want something educational, check out the Environmental Learning Center. While here, you can take a program, visit the boardwalks, and tour the mangroves. Whether you’re a nature lover or you simply want to do something fun with the family, the Environmental Learning Center is a great day trip.

Next, check out the Lake Wales area to see some stunning waterways. There’s the Nature Conservancy, a state park, and more. This is great for those who want to go birdwatching or simply get outside for the day.

Palm Beach County is just a short drive away as well, and it has snorkeling opportunities (a must if you’ve never done it before), scuba reefs, and other aquatic adventures. You can check out local shopping and get great food while you’re there.
