Clearwater Beach! (Gulf of Mexico Side) & Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives!
Hubby had a FOUR DAY WEEKEND! So we took advantage of the extra days and drove about 2 hours West to Clearwater Beach!
Funny story - we found it to be a bit too busy for our tiny-toddler-flow, so we drove down 20 min South to a site where the Food Network's T.V. show, Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives, featured a local well...DIVE! More about that later, but we ended up hanging out at a beach called, "Indian Rocks Beach."
Total local territory-complete with soft white sand beaches- it felt like a custom-made day, just for our lil' fam. to be together.
