One Perfect Day

Imagine one whole day to yourself at the luxurious Vero Beach Hotel & Spa – what would you do? The oceanfront pool is a perfect spot for relaxing in the sun, enjoying a favorite cocktail (brought by a cabana valet, of course). A stroll on the beach is a must!. In the evening, an extraordinary dinner awaits at Cobalt, the resort’s chef-inspired restaurant and lounge. Then sleep like royalty in one of the 113 spacious and elegantly appointed guestrooms.

Veterans of War…and Life

In 1986, when the Challenger explosion shocked the world, I was a junior in high school stuck home with the flu. I was annoyed that my one chance to watch cheesy daytime television was interrupted by what I naively thought was a hiccup – a mistake to be corrected with parachutes and a mulligan.
