Setting — Where the Indian River narrows north of the Barber Bridge in Vero Beach, this clean municipal marina lies snug in the backwater between Fritz and Orchid Islands on the eastern side of the ICW. The dockmaster’s office and ships' store sit conveniently over the docks. Other facilities are on the grounds of a city park surrounded by a quiet residential neighborhood. This charming layover hosts as many as 3,000 cruising yachts each winter.

Marina Notes — The marina began as a city dock for offloading goods and citrus between the mainland and the barrier island. Through the years the city has maintained and expanded the facility, most recently by extending the fuel dock to 120 ft., updating and refurbishing the boaters' lounge and laundry, improving the dinghy dock, replacing pump-out facilities, and adding a canoe storage area and launch ramp. This spot is so popular with cruisers that only five days can be guaranteed on a mooring in winter. Deposit required for facilities key. (H) Jeanne/Frances did minor damage, now totally restored.

Notable — The marina connects by a walkway under the bridge to extensive Riverside Park and Cultural Complex. Nearest is the Riverside Cafe and grassy picnic areas with BBQ facilities, a tennis complex, and fitness trail. Farther along is live, professional Riverside Theater ($6+) and the Center for the Arts which includes Vero Beach Museum of Art (Free, Mon-Sat 10-4:30, Sun 1-4:30) and a large teaching facility. The local shuttle bus stops at the dock and makes trips to the beach, business district and the local mall. Exhibition games during the L.A. Dodgers' spring training draw baseball fans from across the nation. World famous McKee Botanical Garden is 4.5 miles south.
