Florida Beyond The Obvious

By | November 5, 2021

Check out the tips to get to know in depth one of the most beautiful and complete American states.

Florida is a destination known for two things: shopping and theme parks. But in fact, it is MUCH more than that! Imagine the beaches of a place so close to the Caribbean (just 150 km from Cuba or the Bahamas) … Or a typical road trip, going through wonderful landscapes and a beer and wine tour … And there’s more: fabulous natural parks and super interesting museums!


If when talking about Florida, you automatically think of Miami or Orlando, you will practically discover a new world, a VERY complete state, with cool attractions from north to south, from east to west. Full of many other cool and interesting cities!

In addition, Florida’s delightful climate is so conducive to tourism and outings. No wonder, Florida is called the “Sunshine State”.

Today I came to write from this lesser-known side of Florida, but totally charming! Are you curious? Come and discover all that Florida has to offer!

St Pete & Clearwater

Paradisiacal beaches, an average of 361 sunny days a year and cultural, recreational and gastronomic attractions as far as the eye can see.

The region is well known for its white sands and calm waters, and has the beach considered one of the most beautiful in the United States (St Pete Beach). The beaches Belleair Shore and Clearwater Beach are also a must.

Both cities are located on the peninsula that separates Tampa Bay and the Gulf of Mexico, approximately 400km from Fort Lauderdale.

I suggest renting a car in Fort Lauderdale and crossing the state from east to west to St. Pete. It’s a great trip!

If the 56km of beaches for all tastes that connect St. Pete to Clearwater were not enough, in the region you can also visit the Dalí Museum, which has the largest collection of Salvador Dalí, the Clearwater Marine Aquarium (where the film “Winter, the Dolphin” was recorded) and John’s Pass Village & Boardwalk , a leisure and entertainment area, from where it is often possible to see dolphins in the sea. Furthermore, know more about the things to do in John’s Pass, Florida.
