There are so many things to do on the gulf coast. We love the water sports, food spots and cultural/sporting events. We return at least annually and have a different experience every time.

We drove an hour South to Sarasota to visit the Ringling Museum. Highly recommend it. Fascinating exhibit on logistics and Americana. Tickets are like $20 but if you have a student idea they can be scored for $5.


The beaches around Tampa are beautiful and a wonderful vacation spot for families however the city isn’t really that interesting in my opinion. I hoped the historic cigar manufacturing neighborhood of Ybor City woub be interesting but it was disappointingly dead.
