There’s nothing quite like watching sea turtles lay their eggs or baby hatchlings make their way to the ocean! It's awe inspiring and for many a bucket list item. March to October is nesting season and so far we have lots of nests up and down the beach!

Turtle Walks are a great way to experience those precious moments first-hand with two local IRC groups offering official guided tours...Coastal Connections and the Friends of Sebastian Inlet State Park.

The Florida Fish & Wildlife Conservation Commission has been busy marking nests and are also a good resource for viewing and tracking.

Viewing times are either early in the morning or in the late evening when it's much cooler so gear up and go witness nature at it's best.

HURRICANE SEASON is from June 1st to November 30th. Here are a couple of sites to help you GET READY and BE PREPARED!

Here are the TAX FREE HOLIDAY dates and guidelines for purchasing supplies.

Also, since the 2022 season tracking hurricanes has changed. Make sure you're aware and doing it right.


There's so many things to do in our little piece of paradise and something for everyone whether it's cultural, food related, charitable, educational, or environmental, Our Neighborhood has it all.
