Some areas in Gifford are pretty bad, other than that there aren't too many bad areas here. At least, no worse than any other place.

I lived in Vero and if you are looking to buy a home stay far away from Gifford. Unless you enjoy getting shot at. Sebastian is part of IRC but its so so and if you want to be threatened with a gun move to the Highlands. Aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and aggravated assault with a fire arm. And the guy is going on trial and free to wander the streets. Yeah he really showed that mother not to beep her horn in front of his house.

As someone who was born & raised in Detroit,I think it is funny when people say that Gifford is bad.It's not bad at all.I don't live in gifford but have been there many times.Basically any part of vero is pretty decent.I am not a big fan of the highlands,as the last poster said.Mainly it is the kids in that area,they are all retarded,and the parents don't give a crap what they do.

BF recently got a job in Vero. Currently living with friends in Palm Bay. Really need our own place, but don't want to jump out of the frying pan into the fire. I know where Gifford is, but have been unable to determine "Highlands." Can someone please define this area? Also, don't mean to be stupid, but what is IRC?(Our friends aren't from here either. They now wish they had done a little more due diligence before buying in Palm Bay!)
