Hales closed?

I just looked at the website for Hale's Grove and it looks like the retail stores in Wabasso and Vero are closed for remodeling... can anyone confirm? Thanks

Just wanted to share that I had a great 1st visit at Vero Beach last week!

Everything from the beach, pool, restaurants, villas, cast members, were all AMAZING!
My family and I had the time of our lives...and it is the only vacation location that my mother has asked to do a repeat trip for.

Thanks for sharing all the info and recommendations in this thread--It was all very useful.

And if anyone here would like to read more about our Vero Beach trip, here is the link: Let's Try Something New...Florida's Treasure Coast?: A Vero Beach TR!

This thread has been a great source of information. Thanks everyone for their willingness to share!

As I mentioned, we have an early flight out on Saturday, October 6. However, I just realized that there is a MNSSHP on Friday, October 5! We may have to change plans - leave Vero Beach at lunchtime, stay at WDW on Friday night, and attend the party. We'll have to wait and see. My wife made me promise no WDW on this trip. We just got back a week ago from nine nights and are not supposed to go back until 2014. We are planning on HHI next summer instead. But we had such a blast at last year's MNSSHP (our first), I may be able to convince her. Wish me luck!

Regardless, can't wait for our trip to VB in October!
Not a big deal, but I noticed I was not on the roster so I thought I would update as we have a slight change of plans - we will be there for our first trip to VB from 9/29 through 10/4. We are heading up to WDW for two night to catch a MNSSHP.

Can't wait - less than two weeks!

Yes, in the gift shop. We did last year so am guessing it's still possible.

After several delays we finally checked in at 11 pm last night. Had an empty beach this morning and the pool all to ourselves. The weather is gorgeous, one week won't be enough!

Tables In Wonderland at Vero Beach

We are taking our first trip to Disney's Vero Beach in a few weeks and noticed that they accept the TIW discount at their restaurants. I have to renew mine. Does anyone know if I can renew it at Vero? We will be going to Disney after a week at Vero and I know I don't have time to renew by mail.

Hi everybody, first of all I would like to thank everyone for all of their great posts! We will be arriving Sunday for our first ever trip to Vero Beach. I have a question for the group. We live in Southern California and my 22 year old son is an avid surfer. He surfs often in San Diego and has also surfed in Hawaii. He would really like the opportunity to be able to surf a little while we are the, but I have some questions. First of all where can he rent a surf board, and second, would it really be worth it? Do people often surf in that area or are the waves too small to make it enjoyable? Any advice would be appreciated.

thanks!

Havign never surfed in CA, I have to say - I have seen plenty of surfers in the area when we have visited, but in my mind, what I picture as surfing in CA and see in movies - I don't think he'd be happy surfing there. I could be wrong, but... Many moons ago I learned to surf in the Atlantic - just further north - and it was great for someone learning because the waes were small. If you're lucky enough to catch a storm offshore, they get bigger, but really, I can't imagine he'd find the waves there satisfying. Nearby you'll find - http://surf-n-style.com/Board-Rental...each-Shop.html and this site might be helpful - http://www.verobeach.com/surfing.html
