Enjoy a Nice Stay-Cation

Did you know more than half of U.S. workers who are offered paid vacation days will not use them all?   And when you do finally get time off, who wants to waist it with time stuck at an airport or hours in the car?  That is why this 4th of July or at some point this summer, residents of Indian River County should consider a stay-cation instead. No complicated directions or itineraries, just jump right into fun and relaxation.

Vero Beach Hotel and Spa  for just $20 per person on July 1st and 2nd one can enjoy a bountiful BBQ buffet at Heaton’s Reef that will include: Burgers, hot dogs, Braised Bratwurst, Farm Greens & Caesar Salad, Potato Salad, Baked Beans, Corn on the Cob, Brownies, Apple Pie and Candy Apples alongside Signature Cocktails, USA and Micro Beers, Sangria, Spiked Lemonade and Snow Cones.  With seating alongside the ocean, this is an unbeatable price point for celebrating with other patriotic guests.

Captain Hiram’s amazing stay-cation deal is just for Florida Resident.

It is an awesome deal and to use it simply enter the rate code FLRE if booking online. Look up their music schedule ahead of time and book a room to match your favorite band’s gig.

The Prestige Hotel is a splendid surprise for folks who want to relax oceanfront without breaking the bank.  Nestled in Vero’s south beach neighborhood, folks will find tremendous value with rooms starting at just $89 a night in this extended stay, 30 room hotel.  Make your own drink in your kitchen suite then head down to the beach to enjoy complimentary chaise lounges, umbrellas and tables imported from Spain that will feel as though you have escaped to the Mediterranean. Then, come back and take a dip in the heated pool and cook out on one of their gas grills.
