Are you ready to spend some time exploring the great outdoors in Vero Beach? If so, you have a lot of places to choose from. There are too many outdoor attractions in Vero Beach to list. Before you head out to explore, you should consider visiting the Oslo Riverfront Conservation Area.
What is the Oslo Riverfront Conservation Area?
The Oslo Riverfront Conservation Area is a place full of unique and rare plants and animals. From an ecological standpoint, it’s a tropical hammock. In it, you’ll find several incredible species of birds. Put your eyes to the sky or to the water and you’ll find one or more birds. For help identifying them, bring a local bird identification book.
The area is also full of mangroves, a habitat where trees have roots that grow upwards. When you walk through the conservation area, you will see wild coffee plants and ferns growing larger than usual. You’ll also see bromeliads hanging down from the trees and fungus growing along logs. Although the trails seem remote, they are well-kept. You can feel like a true explorer without putting your safety at risk. Whether you stay for an hour or an afternoon, you’ll enjoy your time outside.
Getting to the conservation area is easy. It’s not far from the South Vero Beach Shopping Center. There’s not much parking at the area itself, but you can park at the shopping center if needed. After you're done exploring, stay with us at the Vero Beach Inn and Suites. Book your room today.
