We are breaking up a trip to WDW with a getaway to Vero Beach. Just wanted any suggestions. We have a studio room which we are paying cash for.

Enjoy the natural surroundings of VB. It's so different than the Orlando area.

Beach - Goes without saying. It may still be turtle nesting time so get up early to see tracks or sign up for a walk at night.

Vero Beach Dodgers - If you like baseball go see a game if the team is in town. Tickets are $4 each and parking is free. On Mondays they often have $1 hot dogs, beers or sodas. Can't beat that. Take road 613 to the Stadium. A CM gave me that advice and it was much better than driving down Rt. 1.

McKee Gardens - Very pretty, tropical style walk-thru garden. Nice as a midday break.

Hale Orchards - On Rt. 1 near the Resort. Grab some fresh off the tree fruits or take home delicious juice.

Mel Fisher Treasure Museum - see some of the treasures recovered from shipwrecks in the area.

Fort Pierce - South of the Resort. There is a small town center, marina and Manatee Education Center.
