Happy Friday everyone! I hope your summer is off to a great start this week. We have been having lots of fun this week with the kids out of school, but I’m finding it a little harder to get everything done on my “to do” list with everyone home- ha ha- wink wink;)
I have been a long time subscriber to Coastal Living magazine and recently received their 20th anniversary issue featuring the “Best Places to Live”…I was surprised and delighted to see that 4 of their top 10 places were right here in our backyard in the great state of Florida!
First up was Sarasota, which I love! It’s only about a 25 minute drive from our house and there is so much to see and do there! The beaches are beautiful, there is tons of fabulous shopping and dining destinations- I will be there this weekend, in fact…can’t wait!!
Also featured was St Petersburg which is also only about 25 minutes away and a place we often visit by boat, since it’s just across Tampa Bay from us! Again, wonderful beaches, shopping and dining- so much to do, we love it there!
The last place featured was Alys Beach, which we are planning on visiting this summer…it will be about a 6 hour drive from Tampa Bay, and is located on the Panhandle of Florida in the popular “30-A” area. I can’t wait to go and will be sure to post plenty of pics and information.
I love living here in Florida and sharing it’s wonderful locations with my readers! Wishing everyone a great weekend!!
