We’ve put together the ultimate Florida road trip to inspire you for your next holiday.

Clearwater is also home to the famous Dolphin Winter, which the little ones will know from A Dolphin’s Tale and while in the St Pete / Clearwater area, be sure to visit her in the Clearwater Marine Aquarium. After a day full of water sports, fishing, boating and exploring, relax on the white sand beaches and watch the stunning sunsets that the area is so famous for. We think 3 days is just right to get your fill of sand, sun and fun!
