2. Find your perfect beach

Prior to the development of I-95 in the 70’s, McKee was the largest natural attraction in Florida. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, McKee Botanical Garden is an 18-acre tropical garden supporting a dense and diverse botanical collection as well as several restored architectural treasures. Over 100 varieties of water lilies grow in the Garden each year.

2. Snorkel the S.S.Breconshire Shipwreck

One thing that makes the S.S. Breconshire Wreck special is it’s accessibility – it’s close to shore and close to the shoreline. Snorkelers can swim, kayak or paddle their way out to the wreck. Be sure to spend plenty of time exploring the century-old wreck teeming with underwater life.

7. Go on a Nature Hike

In Vero Beach, there are several preserves and trails that are free to explore. Get a taste of old Florida by exploring the trails on foot, by bicycle or on horseback; and might even spot a deer or two!



8. Treasure Coast Sea Planes

Depart Vero Beach Regional Airport for a low-level flight along Vero Beach’s glorious coastline towards Sebastian Inlet while capturing breathtaking photos. Experience the most bio-diverse lagoon ecosystem in the Northern hemisphere as the tour transitions over the vast Indian River Lagoon en route to the pristine and untouched Blue Cypress Lake for a splashtacular water landing. Once the aircraft comes to rest upon the water, step out onto the floats and behold the true Florida beauty very few get to witness. Immerse yourself with the extraordinary. Abundant wildlife abounds at the birthplace of the St. John’s River. From alligators to osprey, Blue Cypress Lake has it all.
