Sebastian is a small coastal town located in Brevard and Indian River counties. With a population under 25,000, you can enjoy a slower-paced lifestyle than in larger cities. Sebastian has much to offer. It ranks high on the livability scale in comparison with other similarly sized communities, the cost of living is lower than the national average, it has a low crime rate, and the educational system ranks above average on a state and national level.
Nestled along with the Indian River Lagoon and just a stone’s throw from the Atlantic Ocean, Sebastian is a mecca for those looking for a quiet life where they can enjoy the outdoors year-round. Fishing, boating, tennis, golfing, biking, and running are high among the daily activities.
Downtown Sebastian bustles with activity along the riverfront with an excellent selection of restaurants. Riverview Park serves as a hub for concerts, community events, the arts, and as a place for families to enjoy the outdoors.
People have been drawn to the Treasure Coast over the years, seeking treasure lost when the 1715 Treasure Fleet sank during a hurricane. The treasure still washes up on the shores in the area today. But the real treasure is the quality of life found living in the small community. A once vibrant fishing community, the Sebastian Inlet provides access to the Atlantic Ocean for fishing, surfing, and wildlife.
The first National Wildlife Refuge – Pelican Island – is located just north of the inlet and has provided a haven for the once over-hunted birds since the early 1900s. President Teddy Roosevelt established the refuge to protect pelicans and other birds and led the way in the development of the nation’s wildlife refuge system.
