Art Gallery
“Critically acclaimed writer, folklorist, and anthropologist Zora Neale Hurston wrote, of Historic Eau Gallie, “Somehow, this one spot on earth feels like home to me. I have always intended to come back here. That is why I am doing so much to make a go of it.” Eau Gallie is just across the bridge from Indian Harbour Beach. You may not be able to tell just by driving past, but this charming art town has enchanted dozens of America's greatest thinkers. Head over on a Saturday morning to check out local artists, visit the two museums, and explore the local flea market.”
