OK so here goes I'm looking at moving back to Florida for work I was born in west palm beach and lived in fl tell I was 5 then moved out. So here is my question I would be going to Fellsmere area for work but would like to be in able to see the coast but it says Sebastian is like 30 mins to drive 10 miles is this right? I could live without waterfront property but would love to be able to have a view of it and what would housing like this cost I am a homeowner right now but i only paid 150,000 for it. What is the cost of living down there how bad is the tourism in that area.

Homes in the Sebastian area can be quite reasonable in price=
Sebastian FL Waterfront Homes For Sale - 28 Homes | Zillow
Homes right on the water would be in a very different price range

In your price range, I would consider first renting at one of the three waterfront condo developments on Route 1 in Sebastian; River Run, Reflections or Pelican Pointe. They are steps to the Indian River Lagoon and offer great views and marina access.
From Route 1, take the 512 West to Fellsmere, about 15 miles / 20 min. or so, there is no traffic on the 512.

If you're talking ocean, forget it. If you'd be happy with Indian River, then bgrasser is right on. Sebastian isn't a tourist destination, so the population shift in the winter isn't bad at all. I find the traffic very easy to live with. The COL is certainly not the cheapest in FL, but is more than acceptable if you're coming from the usual population centers. You might just find that living in Fellsmere would be good also. Vero Lake Estates is a little west of Sebastian and would be about the midway point between Fellsmere and the Sebastian waterfront. You'll find almost any type of property you could imagine in the development.

Thanks for all the replies so far I'm not sure what types of water views you can get there I'm used to rolling ground so you can always get a view where I'm at I would love ocean view even if that's the 3 or 4th level of a apartment but I know that comes at a big price jump so I'm fine with any type of good view I just don't like not being able to see very far or feeling boxed in but I will have to ride down there soon to look around and see where it goes from there is there a better part of town to look in or is it all about the same I'm 24 and single but not a fan of clubs I prefer to spend my time outdoors in nature

Fellsmere is nice if you like Rural Country life.

Your questions will receive more attention if you post on the Sebastian, Indian River County section.
