IHB is still young, as far as cities go, at 60. The City of Indian Harbour Beach, Florida, was developed as a residential community in support of the growing space industry and activities at nearby Kennedy Space Center, from which humans first traveled to the moon. Fairly small as cities go, it is only two miles square, and about 8,200 citizens call it home. Of diverse backgrounds and all ages, residents enjoy an ideal location on the east coast of central Florida, nestled between the beautiful blue Atlantic Ocean and the calm waters of the Indian River Lagoon.
Visitors can relax or picnic at beachfront parks or stroll through the 27-acre Gleason Park surrounding a lake with its many exercise paths, lighted in the early evening by quaint Victorian lights.
Indian Harbour Beach has a secluded location between the Intracoastal waterway and the Atlantic Ocean. As such, the small community members of this tiny beach town know and look out for one another.
