Clearwater: A Beautiful Florida Beach…If You Can Find Parking!

One of Florida’s most iconic beaches, Clearwater, offers one of the best settings on Florida’s Gulf Coast. This beautiful wide, white sandy beach offers a more upbeat vibe than many other Pinellas County beaches. My favorite aspect of this beach is definitely the shear amount of space available. After spending time at many other narrow […]

St. Pete Municipal Beach: Finally a Wide Beach on Florida’s Gulf Coast!

Although technically located in Treasure Island, the city of St. Petersburg owns and maintains this beach, which happens to be one of the widest on the Gulf coast. Here you will find plenty of room to enjoy the day without any noisy neighbors! If someone is too loud or obnoxious, you can just move to […]

A Hot June Afternoon at St. Pete’s Pass-A-Grille Beach

Pass-A-Grille Beach, located on the southern end of St. Pete Beach, is a popular spot amongst locals due to the pristine nature (you will notice an absence of hotels and restaurants lining the beach, unlike nearby St. Pete Beach). Although a bit less crowded than St. Pete Beach, it is still hard to find parking […]

An Afternoon of Sunny Skies & Trails at Conner Preserve in Land O’Lakes, Florida

This morning we planned for a small hike at Conner Preserve in Land O’Lakes, Florida. We made the mistake of leaving a bit too late. By the time we got to the preserve (around 10:30am), it was much too hot for a stroll in the blazing Florida sun. However, we had already made the drive […]

Clear Water, Light Waves & Relaxation at Indian Rocks Beach

A Stormy Ride along Florida’s Pinellas Trail

This weekend, Mike and I embarked on the 11 mile journey from Dunedin to Tarpon Springs, Florida via the popular Pinellas Trail biking/walking path. The entire journey is 40+ miles (starting in St. Petersburg and ending in Tarpon Springs), however, we felt like taking a leisurely Saturday ride. Nothing too intense, especially since we are […]

Starkey, a gorgeous 8000 acre park, is home to an abundance of wildlife and beautiful natural lands (pinewood forests, marshes, lakes, […]

Tarpon Springs, located on the Gulf Coast of Florida, is home to several beautiful beaches. Today, we decided to take a look at Sunset Beach. Unfortunately, due to an oncoming storm we were unable to take any sunset photos. However, we did enjoy the stormy views and deserted atmosphere. What a nice change of pace […]
