Say Yes to Fitness

Let’s be honest, it’s a commitment you make to yourself every January. Many people set goals to live a healthier lifestyle. Whether that means tackling a diet plan or implementing a fitness regime, many (maybe even yourself) choose to focus on themselves and really commit to their health and fitness.

When it comes to fitness, many quit due to a lack of variety in their fitness routine – they get bored, for lack of a better term. That’s not an excuse for members at Palm Island.

Before Heading South

Many of the residents at Palm Island Plantation settle into the community here for the winter months, soaking in every second of the year-round near-perfect weather that Vero Beach, Florida has to offer. But before you jet off to the Florida coast, be sure to wrap up things at home. Here are some tips for winterizing your summer home.

  1. Clear the Gutters – Whether you’re in a region that deals with heavy snowfall or not, it’s important to clear your gutters of all leaves and debris always, but especially before the temperature drops. Your gutters already take a hit just with the fluctuation in temperature. When you add in the presence of leaves, twigs, and anything else that may collect there, it’s just added pressure. Clear it out.
  2. Follow-up on the Furnace Filter – Whether you’ll be keeping the house at 60 degrees or a toasty 72, inspect your furnace filter and replace if necessary. Better yet, ensure that your complete heating system, ductwork and all, is functioning correctly.
  3. Trim the Trees – Before you cut your Christmas tree, be sure to show your landscaping some love. Remove any precariously hanging branches and prune back bushes and shrubs as they settle in to hibernate for the winter.
  4. Insulation – Drafty windows are not only annoying but can wreak havoc on a heating bill. Be sure all windows and doors are shut and locked tightly. Added insulation along these frames can also be beneficial as well. Be sure all exposed piping is wrapped and sealed to avoid rupturing.
  5. Clean-up Crew – there’s nothing quite like coming home to a spotless house. Especially if your home will be completely vacant over the winter months, be sure it is spotless before heading South. Perhaps schedule another cleaning a week prior to your return to freshen things up and have everything looking perfect for your arrival.

Fly in to Fabulous

One of things we love most about life at Palm Island Plantation is its optimal location to the great city of Vero Beach that offers fine dining, exciting activities, and more! Nestled along the beachfront of the Indian River, Palm Island Plantation offers not only some of the best beachfront views in the region, but some of the most prime real estate in relation to the dynamic downtown district and the Vero Beach Regional Airport, the area’s main transportation hub.

The Vero Beach Regional Airport is embedded deep within the history of the city itself, dating back to its first period of service in 1935. An ideal stop between Miami and Jacksonville, the airport was, and continues to be, a local hub for air traffic. Extending the terminal in the 1960s allowed the airport to accommodate more requests as various airlines utilized the Vero runway.

Today, you’ll find three fully operational runways that accommodate over 180,000 annual flights. The airport offers an elite facility that includes 24-hour security, free parking, and a series of on-site restaurants, cafes, and a brewery for your convenience.

The airport is committed to providing safe and efficient aviation facilities to a wide variety of passengers while operating in harmony with the area’s high-quality lifestyles. It does offer commercial airline services through Elite Airways, though many of our residents at Palm Island are equipped with their own aviation capacities and utilize the Vero Beach Regional Airport. Welcomed at the airport are both commercial and non-commercial aircrafts and the facility offers a variety of services including aircraft storage, flight planning, catering, car rental, charter services, and avionics repair and maintenance.

We’re so lucky to call Vero Beach home to Palm Island Plantation. We couldn’t imagine our community residing anywhere else. See for yourself what makes Palm Island the ultimate option for tropical living. Call to book a tour appointment today at 772.234.6500.
