Share unforgettable vacation days along Florida’s middle east coast… at modest cost (1960)
A hundred miles of uncrowded island beaches invite you in the Indian River region of Florida. Bring the family. Soak up sun on the sloping sands. Swim and sail in gentle surf. Go picnicking, shelling.
A great salt-water lagoon backs up this island strand from Titusville to Stuart. It makes a tranquil setting for boating, skiing, other water sports.
And the fishing is sensational. From shore or boat you can tie into mackerel, snook, drum, ladyfish, giant trout. Drop a line from bridges or jetties for unpredictably varied catches. Cast in the surf for whiting, sea bass, pompano, blues. Or try your luck at deep-sea trolling just offshore.
Enjoy sightseeing through this region’s rich farmlands. Taste flavor-famous Indian River oranges. Near Vero Beach visit a tropic garden where orchids grow wild on trees.
Most of the cities you come to offer golf, tennis, shuffleboard. Attractive lodgings are easy to find on the main-land or along the ocean beaches. And rates are comforting to the family budget.
There is much more to tell you about Indian River country than there is room for here. To get full details about this and every one of Florida’s nine vacation regions, send for your copy of the new guide book offered below. It gives the facts you need to plan a Florida tour.
See the natural wonders of old Central Florida (1961)
You are peering into the cypress-canyoned swamps of High-lands Hammock State Park where only the ‘gators seem aware of man.
All else is pristine nature, inexorably unchanging. Ageless hardwoods drench the paths in shadow. Rare resurrection fern sprouts on their creviced bark. Colorful birds flit through the towering branches.
Visitors to this sylvan spectacle tell us its trembling silence stirs the soul.
Such thrills are plentiful in Central Florida. In Lake Wales, you see Spook Hill, where cars coast up grade, a bird sanctuary and Singing Tower.
Near Ocala are huge springs sublimely clear to their 50-foot depths. Hundreds of sparkling lakes nestle in the green hills of this Florida heartland. Their shores are dotted with delightful places to stay.
Visit these lakes for exciting big-bass fishing, for water skiing, for wonderful bathing and boating.
Florida: Every day brims with vacation pleasures (1961)
Family fun in particular fills every vacation da in the Indian River Region of Florida. Choose your own strip of beach along sunny island strands that front this middle-east coast from Titusville to Stuart.
The uncrowded sands are a pleasure haven for families with their young “salts” in tow.
Go bathing and snorkeling in the transparent surf. Or take a barefooted stance in the sea wash and cast for panfish. They make a savory treat cooked on the beach over driftwood embers.
Spend happy hours boating or fishing on calm Indian River lagoon. Its 100-mile course leads to endless adventures. Small powerboats rent for a pittance. Or trail your own boat down. Launching ramps are plentiful.
Many things to see and do keep vacation days brimming with interesting activities. Places to stay are geared to family needs.
You live in friendly resorts, free of dress-up problems, at a downright sensible cost. For full details send for the free, 1961 Guide to Florida Vacations.
