Vero Beach, FL, near Treasure Coast Lexus in Fort Pierce, FL
Treasure Coast Lexus in Fort Pierce, FL, attracts customers from a number of surrounding cities and communities seeking new and used cars, including Vero Beach, most notable for being the longtime spring training home (until recently) of the Brooklyn/Los Angeles Dodgers.
Vero Beach is county seat of Indian River County, as well as the county's second-most populous city with 15,220 residents, according to the 2010 U.S. Census. The city has a total area of 12.93 square miles, with 1.85 square miles of that being water. The city's primary industries are citrus fruit packing and tourism, while its primary employer is general aviation manufacturer Piper Aircraft, which selected Vero Beach as the site for its research and development center in 1957 and later moved its administrative and manufacturing operations to the city.

Vero Beach's biggest claim to fame, however, was as home to "Dodgertown," the spring training complex for the Brooklyn (and later, Los Angeles) Dodgers. The Dodgers first established Vero Beach as their spring training home in 1948, locating at an old naval air station barracks. The facility allowed the team, the first to embrace integration, to circumvent the Jim Crow laws prevalent at the time when it came to housing and feeding its players. Over the years, "Dodgertown" became a popular stop for baseball fans conducting March spring training tours through Florida, but that era ended in 2008 when the Dodgers became the last West Coast-based team to relocate its spring facilities to Arizona. The state-of-the-art facility is still used for sports tournaments, concerts and special events.
