What is the best airport to fly into when traveling Vero Beach?

In our experience, the most convenient airport to fly into is Orlando as it is a destination served by most airlines and is only a two hour drive from Vero Beach. The next most convenient airport would be Melbourne, about one hour to the north of us. A number of airlines offer connecting flights into Melbourne, usually through Atlanta. Airport shuttle services are available from both Orlando and Melbourne Airports to Vero Beach. Some candidates fly into either Miami (3 hour drive) or Ft. Lauderdale (2½ hour drive) or West Palm Beach (1½ hour drive) but neither of these destinations have an airport shuttle connection to Vero Beach. If you fly into one of these locations you will need to rent a car and drive here or take a Greyhound bus which stops in Fort Pierce. See the next question for more information on car rental.
