We had a great Vacation in Florida. We went to St. Pete Beach, FL, which is on the Gulf of Mexico. Near Tampa / St. Petersburg, FL.
On the way down we took the long route and stopped in Mobile, AL. On our way out we stopped by the USS Alabama Battleship museum. Very cool tour. Lots of great stuff to see. Plus you get to actually go down inside the ship as well as a submarine.
Thanks to Yelp we found some great out of the way places to eat. Found lots of places that we would have never stopped at, but we were glad we found them.
Got to kick up our heels on the sand and chill. We also got lots of walking in as well. My feet were on fire and ready for the pool.
Nothing was really planned along the way. We just took our time. As much as we enjoyed the “Road Trip” aspect, I think next time we might have to fly. That was a long time behind the wheel.
We went up North to Clearwater to check out the beaches up there. It was a lot nicer, but it was also very, very crowded. As one reviewer on Yelp put it, it was an Umbrella Parking Lot. St. Pete’s Beach was much more intimate and quiet.
Diner on the beach was wonderful.
We got to see family as well.
Looking forward to the next one.
