Valentine's Vacation Getaway to Vero Beach, FL


For a Truly Romantic getaway, think Vero Beach, FL because not only is Vero Latin for True, it offers romance for couples on many fronts. For “foodies” it might be a beachside candlelit dinner, for thrill-seekers it could be a tandem sky dive, and a pirate just might want to wander with his wench in search of sunken treasure.

As Vero Beach sits at the intersection of green and glamorous, along Florida’s “Treasure Coast,” a romantic encounter can be found around many corners as well as with toes in the aquamarine sea. Beachgoers can expect 26 miles of well-preserved waterfront — a place where sea turtles call home, couples get engaged, and others find their bliss.

Seeking a spot to “pop the question” or rekindle romance in a decades-long marriage this Valentine's Day?  Here are some of our favorite picks for stoking the flame in Vero Beach:

WHAT’S NEW IN VERO BEACH FOR VISITORS TO CHECK OUT IN 2019

There are always new treasures to uncover along
the Florida Treasure Coast

INDIAN RIVER COUNTY, Fla. (Nov. 13, 2018) – Return to Vero Beach this winter and you’ll be welcomed back by the 26 miles of waterfront unobstructed by high rises and thus noted for its sunrises. You’ll also enjoy the tried and true eateries, recreational areas, events and friendly locals.  But there are numerous new treasures to discover too.  Here’s just a sampling:

Smiley Riley’s Ice Cream Lounge taps into the national fad of creating alcohol-infused ice cream delights such as toasty sm’ores with rum and 13 other adult flavors, along with kiddie-approved flavors too.  It’s a new happy hour indulgence.  Newly opened in September, the mother-daughter owned shoppe is open Tuesday-Friday afternoons 4-11pm and Saturday and Sunday 2-11pm. Smiley Riley’s Ice Cream Lounge at the corner of U.S. 1 and Oslo Road, Vero Beach. (772) 226-0466.

TOP FESTIVALS IN INDIAN RIVER COUNTY

Events for the entire family are celebrated in 2019

INDIAN RIVER COUNTY, Fla. -- What do frog legs, pelicans, and craft brews all have in common? They are all festivals held throughout the year that connect locals and travelers alike to art, food, Mother Nature and yes, even beer. Festivals bring about a sense of community, where thousands of like-minded strangers become friends sharing in the celebration while introducing visitors to the unique personalities of Vero Beach, Fellsmere and Sebastian.

Here a few upcoming festivals to add to your calendar of events:

  • Sebastian Clambake – In 2002, a nonprofit corporation started a November festival that deeply affected the local community and has continued to make waves to this day. Past events raised more than $600,000, which were then distributed to local nonprofit organizations. The organizers believe that exceptional eats, soul-stirring music, historical re-enactments and plenty of family fun make this festival a wonderful way to give back to the community. The clambake takes place from November 2-4, 2018 and around the same time in 2019.
  • If frog legs and gator tails are your thing, then you’re in good company! Every January for the past 25 years, the Fellsmere Frog Leg Festival puts Fellsmere, Florida, on the map. This festival has become a huge draw for visitors who want to experience homespun, Florida-fun, and of course locals who want to join their family and friends enjoying the best the sunshine state offers. Hop to the festival from January 17-20, 2019.
