Florida’s Top 3 Beach Destinations

It’s the middle of winter, and maybe you’ve had your fill of skiing, snowboarding, and temperatures that require up to four layers of clothes.  Solution…pack up the family and head south to Florida! Here’s our top picks for beaches to visit while in the Sunshine State!

3. Siesta Beach- Siesta Key, FL

Voted “The Best Sand Beach” by the Travel Channel, Siesta Beach prides itself on its cleanliness and its 99% pure quartz sand that keeps your feet comfortable and cool.  Being walking distance to numerous local shops, restaurants, and activites helps keep the family entertained and energized. Looking to stay active? Siesta Beach also offers shaded playgrounds, volleyball and tennis courts, and fishing and boat tours throughout the day and evening.  Enjoy that sunset too!

2.  Fort Lauderdale Beach- Greaterer Fort Lauderdale, FL

There’s endless options for beaches on the east coast of Florida, but if you want to maximize your experience, head to Fort Lauderdale!  With 23 miles of shoreline in the greater Fort Lauderdale area, there’s usually not enough time to do and see it all. If you’re looking to unwind and relax, the tranquility and nature of Hillsboro Beach will undoubtedly clear the mind and soul.  On the other side of the coin, if you like to cut loose, the aptly named Hollywood beach will meet all those needs! With beachfront bars, endless nightlife, and the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino can keep you busy for more days than you’ll be able to book! Always remember to split 8’s!  

1. Clearwater Beach- Clearwater, FL

There’s a reason that Trip Advisor’s Traveler’s Choice Awards has named Clearwater Beach the #1 Beach in the United States for the second straight year.  There’s actually probably 20-30 reasons but we’ll narrow it down for you! It really is the little things that Clearwater does well. There’s ample and easy parking, a family friendly oriented atmosphere, blinding white sand, and shops and restaurants everywhere you look that isn’t the Gulf!  Like to fish? Pier 60, located right on the beach, houses a 1,000- foot fishing pier accommodated with it’s own bait and tackle house, souvenir shop, and snack shack with drink and food! It’s clean, it’s friendly, it’s energetic it’s fun…it’s #1!
