If you are looking for somewhere to take the kids for a few days, Vero Beach is a good option. It is not far if you’re in Orlando – you can easily get there in under 2 hours and it has a lot to offer. Here is a taste of what you can expect.
Accommodation to suit every family
There is plenty of luxury real estate in the Vero Beach area for you to stay at or even buy. Many of the owners even rent out their properties to holidaymakers. So, it is not hard to find somewhere special to stay and it is surprisingly affordable to do so for a short trip. Especially if you are happy to travel with a couple of other families. The potential is there to all stay in one property and split the cost. Many of the luxury properties in the area have a pool and other facilities.
Alternatively, you can stay just outside the area and travel in. Normally you will not have to pay as much in rent.
Entertainment for all age groups
It doesn’t matter what your family’s tastes are, you will find something to keep everyone entertained. All age groups are well catered for. Here are just a few of the things you could do while staying in the area.
Enjoy Disney’s Vero Beach Resort
Booking yourself a few nights at the resort is well worth considering. There is so much for everyone to enjoy there, especially kids’ activities including scavenger hunts and adventure sports. As well as indoor games and activities that are not weather dependent. While your kids are enjoying all of this you could get some downtime or a spa treatment.
Get close to nature
Despite being a popular spot for tourists there are plenty of natural spaces and experiences to enjoy. Including the beautiful McKee Botanical Garden, which is a very relaxing place to visit. There are some lovely walks and trails too. Find out about a few of them here.
Just an hour away is The Indian River Lagoon where you can enjoy activities like kayaking or canoeing.

Enjoy the area’s interesting history and culture
Spending a few hours learning about an area’s history and culture is always worth doing. If your kids like art, the Art Museum is a must. It has all kinds of artwork spread across 5 floors including paintings, sculptures, and glasswork. The educational and outreach wing always has something different to offer. Most kids also enjoy the Piper Factory tour. In the evening, the Riverside Theatre is a good place to head to.
As you can see, the area really does have a lot to offer. With a bit of planning, you are sure to be able to enjoy a nice holiday in the Vero Beach area.
