Has anyone done any fishing while at VB? DH and DSs loved the excursions at HHI. Just wondering if VB offered them as well.

Thanks!

Things for a 18 month old to do at Vero

Hey,

I'm new to these boards and tried to search the previous threads but couldn't fine much on this. planning to maybe go to vero beach resort in april with my wife and 18 month old. Will there be much for him to do there?
I saw the current activities list and doesn't seem like much for under 3.
is there a play area? playground? Also can kiddies that aren't potty trained use any of the pool/water areas?

Thanks for any help.

- What is your favorite place to eat, and do I need to make reservations? If so, then when?
- Since we will only be there for two days, what are your 'do not miss this' activities?
- How easy is it to get around town? I know we'll definitely want to stop at a grocery store to pick up a few things.
- Am I going to need to pack beach towels or are there plenty of towels in the room? We are going to have so much luggage already for the cruise, that I hate to take up more space if I don't have to. If needed, I can probably grab some old towels from home that we can throw out at the end of the trip.
Hi there! First, unless you plan to eat right at the resort you need a car to get anyplace... Nothing decent is within walking distance from VBR. If you like fish/seafood try Squid Lips in Sebastian, which is just north. The place is on a pier and looks like a dive but the food is absolutely incredible. We eat there every time we go to VB. no reservations needed. The resort is not in town, so again, a rental car makes life much easier. You do not need to pack any beach towels, the resort provides towels for the beach and of course there are towels at the pool. Our last trip there was for a week this past June for our anniversary, and while there we renewed our wedding vows on the beach. Most definitely an amazing trip! Have a wonderful trip!

Sand castles?

Need a break from the theme park vacations, so I'm headed down to VB for the first time 4/20-27 with wife, kids and SOs, and grand son. Wondering how the beach is looking after the storms and if it's suitable for (and has room for) sand castles?

My wife and I were just there over Christmas.

Beach was fine, with plenty of space to relax and play. Sand wasn't as soft as on the gulf, but still nothing to complain about.

Being that it was winter, the beach wasn't really very crowded. But I guess closer to the summer it can get busier.

The surf was pretty close to the "cliff" (about 40 feet or so most of the time). But the beach was also pretty wide. From both extents of the resort plus a little bit of the open space between the neighboring resorts.

My friends were there last weekend and made a sand sea turtle on the beach. So depending on the time of day/tides there is the possibility for sand sculptures.

Of course, if you're visiting during sea turtle nesting season, please be sure to topple your sand castle before leaving the beach so as not to disturb a nesting female's journey up the sand later that night.

Ate in Mulligan's in VB last night! Great food! We ate outside and a gas campfire and the sound of the waves made great atmosphere too!

Hot tub is closed this week because it's being made HA.

Weather has been great for the pool, at first I was disappointed that I was here when the work was being done, but, well, I am glad the HA issue is being addressed.

Staff is great. Called to find out where to take trash...was told that they would pick it up, I said, "no,lease tell me." The reply was that they would come, they were glad to do it. I now know it is in the garage, but still, it WAS nice to have it picked up!

We bought 1/8th bushel of Honeybelles at Hale groves yesterday...absolutely delicious, juicy fruit! Plant City strawberries, bananas, and honeybelles make a wonderful fruit salad!

We have gone 3 times all pre cruise and plan to go again in Oct. it is wonderful precruise stay Nd very easy to get to PC or even Miami where our cruise will sell out of. It is relaxing we just tend to hangout at the pool and play mini golf. They do have a great seafood buffett and character breakfast the buffett is on Thursday night and Sat for the characters.

Rob,
Thanks for starting the thread for 2013. Going to miss the pictures above in 2013... going to Aulani as a trade off.
