Favorite Things to Do in Vero Beach - For Families

For Families

Hunt for treasure, beach glass, sea beans and sea shells along our 26 miles of pristine beaches. Whoever has the most beautiful "find" wins a prize!

Visit the city marina to uncover the most unusual boat name and furthest home port (how do the boats from New Mexico get there?!) then catch a killer sunset over the Indian River Lagoon.

Indulge in a mother and daughter pedicure at Polished or try a new hair-do at HauteDry on Cardinal Drive.

Grab a frozen orange juice or ice cream at Countryside Citrus on Ocean Drive and then head to the beachside playground at Humiston Park.

Hit Riverside Park: tour or take a class at The Museum of Art, catch a play at Anne Morton's children's theater, or play a game of tennis.

Rent a kayak from Adventure Kayaks and take a moonlight paddle along the Indian River with a pit stop on a spoil island for a picnic dinner.

Practice your swing at Big Shots on US-1, that offers fun golf games for kids. It's like bowling, for golf!

Head to Casey's Place for the best french fries in town, then buy a kite from Corey's Pharmacy and fly it on the beach, or Jaycee or Humiston oceanfront parks.

Go on a hiking, biking, kayaking, or paddleboarding adventure at Round Island Park which has access to the ocean and river. Be on the lookout for manatees!

Check out surfers hanging ten on a windy day at Sebastian Inlet State Park then play in the gorgeous mosaic floor water fountains at the end of Royal Palm Pointe.

Try the Red Onion's famous crispy grouper reuben and homemade potato chips, finished off with a scoop of ice cream from Kilwin's next door on Ocean Drive.

Lose yourself at the Vero Beach Book Center, full of books, games, toys and fun!

Tour the Blue Cypress Conservation area by airboat, complete with a nature tour guide!
