Vero 2011, following DCL

We're thinking of doing a 4 night stay at Vero Beach following our cruise on The Dream. Is it a straight forward drive from Port Canaveral and what would our chances be of getting 4nights in AUgust at the 7 month window? Thanks!

I'm a bit late to this thread, but I'd reiterate what has been said about it not being the best place to be without a car. That said, during our two night stay there, we did manage to get taxis to both Captain Hiram's and Riverside Cafe (we had a car, but we wanted to have a drink ).

In the lobby is a big book full of local attractions, including restaurants and menus. The onsite choices aren't really sufficient for stays longer than a night or two.

Vero

Hi Helen,

I'd take the 192 to St Cloud & then on to Melbourne, stop by the beach & have a bit of lunch before taking the A1A South to Vero Beach Resort.

It's a nice drive for a plodder like me , the speed limit keeps changing so be aware ,take it steady & don't forget your on holiday.

Places to visit,
McLarty Treasure Museum, on the A1A @ Sabastian Inlet .
Just turn right on exiting Vero & it's not far away.

Fort Pierce isn't far either if you turn left on exiting Vero , it's scenic & a nice drive.

You must do the campfire singalong @ Vero , it's great for the kids.
Watch out for the " no see ums " tho.

Kev

Has anyone been, what was your opinion? What is there to do / eat?

How did you get there

Thanks
The pool and the slide are great. I drive there from Orlando. I would recommend driving there from Orlando and staying for 2 or 3 nights. It can be a nice end to your Orlando vacation.

Another vote for Captain Hiram's here - we love that place. Also the main resort restaurant - Shutter's is good too, and for me, the CM's at Vero are the best

We have an 8 year old - would he like it? Or is VB more for adults? Sorry if its a dumb question, just I'd love to go but worried my son would hate it - he's a busy outdoorsy sort of child by the way.

Many thanks.

Yes. They have special activities for the kids. He will enjoy the pool and slide, beach and ocean, miniature golf, campfire, and a number of age appropriate activities.

Thank you - we'd love to add it either beginning or end of our next trip - fingers crossed in July! If not we have a plan B & plan C involving Half Terms or Easter!!
