Last Minute Spring Break Vacation Idea that Won’t Break the Bank

Clearwater Beach

Clearwater Beach

I have been receiving daily request for spring break ideas that take a small amount of planning, won’t break the bank and offer a fun way for the family to reconnect. I highly recommend visiting St. Petersburg/Clearwater.

White-sand beaches with crystal-clear water, glistering nightlife and a thriving cultural scene – it’s all there.

Nestled between the Gulf of Mexico and Tampa Bay, the St.Petersburg/Clearwater area has something for everyone, whether you’re looking for excitement or relaxation.

Whether you’re a family eager for the beach, a couple planning a wedding or romantic interlude, or a lone traveler in search of solitude, St. Petersburg/Clearwater is a location you should consider for your next vacation. How do I know? Because I too, have called it my vacation home for the past 30 years.

My top beach picks in the area are:

  • Indian Rocks Beach-Accommodations: Indian Rocks Beach offers a range of places to stay including quaint beach cottages sprinkled between lavishly appointed beach condos. You won’t find any large chain hotels along the Gulf side of the beach, but you will find the Holiday Inn Hotel & Suites Harbourside directly on the Intracoastal Waterway.
  • Indian Shores-Beaches: Indian Shores has more than two miles of sandy Gulf Coast beaches to enjoy, whether your preferred activity is swimming, shelling, sunbathing or fishing. The Tiki Gardens public beach access, formerly a well-known tourist attraction, offers restrooms, showers and plenty of parking.
  • Reddington Beach-Beaches: North Redington Beach offers almost a mile of beautiful beaches that slope gently into the Gulf of Mexico. These shores are perfect for low-key relaxation. Attractions: Although a quieter area, North Redington Beach’s central location means that museums, art galleries and boutiques are not far from your home base. Along the beach, visitors will find a number of local shops and restaurants. Two playground areas and two tennis courts are also available for residents and visitors.
  • Treasure Island-Beaches: The main draw for today’s visitors is still the town’s three miles of white, sandy beaches on the Gulf of Mexico. Go swimming, shelling, sunning, snorkeling, parasailing and more, or simply walk the beach and enjoy memorable views, especially as the sun sets.
  • St. Pete Beach-Beaches: St. Pete Beach’s sandy shores include the longest undeveloped stretch of public beach in the county at Pass-a-Grille Beach. The area beaches offer a variety of water sports and beachside adventures, from parasailing and stand-up paddleboarding to windsurfing and kiteboarding.

What Our Clients Say

My grandson Oscar (5), son Johnathan, sister Kim and I went to Disney World for a week.  When I first had the thought to go I thought, where do I begin?  I put a shout out on FaceBook and discovered that Beth was a guru.  All I had to give her was my dates and we started from there.  She gave me options for resorts, told me about the dining plan, park hopper, fast passes and resorts to stay in.  She walked me through every step of the way.  I know that our vacation would not have been half as fun or organized if not for Beth.  I can’t say enough good things about her.  I would ask a silly question, she would reply and not make me feel like it was silly.  There is so much to Disney that I know it would have been a nightmare without her.  She is always, friendly and helpful.  She never tried to sway my opinion one way or another and let me make the decisions.  I would definitely have been lost without her.  I recommend her to everyone who says they want to go to Disney World.  Thank you Beth for the vacation of a lifetime.
