NOTE: Explore Indian River features a video section called Take a Drive. In that section, appropriately enough, you can watch videos that allow the viewer to take a virtual drive down a specific road in Indian River County. While that may or may not sound exciting to the average person, there is an added feature linking each video together: at chosen intersections of each video, there are links where the viewer can “turn”, usually left or right, down a different road by clicking on the embedded annotation links provided. All of the videos can be viewed on Explore Indian River’s YouTube page if you prefer. Some portable devices may not be able to click on embedded links within the videos.
