Escape to Florida's Gulf Coast for a Romantic Getaway
Posted On Tuesday, February 04, 2014
Ah, love is in the air. The month of February presents the perfect occasion for an escape to Florida's Gulf Coast for a romantic getaway. Imagine you and the one you love basking in the sun, the warm Gulf of Mexico waters lapping at your feet, taking in the brilliant coastal sunrises and sunsets, and feeling the white sugary sand beneath your feet as palm trees surround you, gently swaying in the Gulf Coast breeze. Not only is this quite the romantic setting, isn't it a much better reality than the snow, ice and cold temperatures that blanket a good portion of the nation right now? We whole-heartedly say: Yes!
In addition to the stunning tropical surroundings found here, you'll also find plenty of other reasons why you should consider planning your romantic Gulf Coast getaway right now. Read on to find out more.
Spend Valentine's Day on Florida's Gulf Coast
Why not make this year's Valentine's Day celebration extra special and extra romantic? Whisking your loved one away to Florida's Gulf Coast sounds pretty romantic to us. It's easy to plan, really. Make your getaway a priority, find the dates that work best for you and your loved one, choose that perfect place on the beach and book it, Dano. Simple.
Indian Rocks Beach and Indian Shores Offer the Best of Both Worlds
You already know that the beaches are amazing here in Indian Rocks Beach and Indian Shores. Our barrier island shores are more secluded and less crowded than other area beaches, which is a plus for any romantic getaway for two. You also have the benefit of enjoying both the Gulf of Mexico waters on one side and the Intracoastal waters on the other side of our island. We know that you may want options that extend outside of our little paradise, so that's why our location is ideal. We offer you peace and quiet combined with close, convenient access to the Gulf Coast's hottest attractions, places-to-be, events, festivals and more. Tampa, Clearwater, St. Pete and all of our favorite little coastal towns are easily within driving distance from our shores. It's definitely the best of both worlds.
Plenty of Things To Do During Your Gulf Coast Getaway
It really doesn't matter what time of year you vacation with us, there is always a full schedule of things to do during your time here. Enjoy dining, shopping, mingling with the locals, fun on the water, area festivals, some of Florida's most popular attractions and so much more. This month hosts the Florida State Fair, the Clearwater Sea-Blues Festival and more.
Florida's Gulf Coast for a Destination Wedding
We are speaking of romance here. Sometimes, one thing leads to another and all of the sudden you're ready to make plans for the future. If you've made some special memories here, wouldn't it be a logical, beautiful and wonderfully sentimental place to plan a destination wedding? Imagine the photo ops you'd have, the coastal ambiance you'd be immersed in, and the makings of a really special day in a really special place. It's just a thought to consider. There is also a free Valentine's Day wedding ceremony at the Florida Botanical Gardens in Largo if you're looking to tie the knot in the very near future. If you're not interested in a public ceremony, it's a lovely venue to book a private one, too.
We could spend all day listing compelling reasons for an escape to the Gulf Coast. Seriously, we could. However, we'll let you ponder these ideas for now.
If you're planning to be here for a romantic getaway or if you'll be here for any other reason in the month of February, let us know. We love hearing from our readers. We'd also love to hear what you think makes the Gulf Coast a great romantic escape. Our comment section is always open. Cheers to romance, Florida getaways, and an escape from the cold, snowy grasp of Old Man Winter!
