Indian River

Vero Beach sits in Indian River County, so named for the lagoon that runs through it. The area is world famous for its citrus which makes up a large share of the industry. Disney's Vero Beach Resort embraces the history of the surrounding area, and locally-inspired details can be found in almost every corner of the property. Even the tables in the lobby are created to look like citrus packing crates, printed with the Indian River name. As many of the local citrus growers donated material for Disney to use, the Orchid label is most likely the Orchid Island Growers Inc. company, which is located in Wabasso.
