For her 25th birthday, Turo member Kathleen D. decided she needed to escape Denver and head somewhere that has palm trees and drinks with little umbrellas in them. So she and her boyfriend Chris hopped on a plane to Orlando, where they picked up Michelle’s Mercedes-Benz M-Class. Insulated from Florida’s famous summer humidity by the Mercedes’s air conditioning, they drove south to the vacation town of Vero Beach, where fiery sunsets and aqua-blue Atlantic waters awaited.

They spent a lot of time at the beach that weekend, taking advantage of the calm breaks between tropical downpours. After a trip to the local supermarket, they returned to the condo to cook up some tasty tacos with a new recipe they had found.

Vero Beach proved to be a charming American beach town, with classic waterfront restaurants that were mostly empty during Florida’s off-season.

A little exploration and a lot of relaxation rounded off the weekend nicely.
