Things to Do in Vero Beach
Relaxing on the beach in Florida is enough of an event for some people, but Vero Beach offers a lot of fun activities that you should take advantage of. Go on a kayak tour with one of the operators on Orchid Island, or rent one and ask a guide to recommend a route for you. Rent bikes and ride around the island, stopping for lunch and a walk in the Veterans Memorial Island Sanctuary. This particular island sanctuary is breathtaking, with benches facing the scenic Indian River Lagoon. Or spend a day indoors at the Vero Beach Museum of Art or exploring the historic downtown area, where you can learn more about Vero Beach’s development as a railroad town in the nineteenth century. Foodies will love the area’s fresh seafood options and restaurants such as Scampi Grill, Riverside Cafe, and Casey’s Place. Don’t miss the gorgeous subtropical plants in the McKee Botanical Garden.
