Best Beach Destinations in Florida

St. Augustine Beach

Growing up in Florida all of my life, I have been to quite a few beaches along each coast. It amazes me how one stretch of ocean can be so different depending on where you decided to vacation. Each little beach town brings something different to the table and it really depends on what your goal is to accomplish during your stay. There are some towns who are better known for families while others you may be interested in for a romantic getaway and let’s not forget…. girls trip…. which can be completely opposite from the others. My personal favorite is the west coast of Florida along the panhandle. There’s just something about a pretty sunset that always makes me feel right at home.

I’m going to break this down by categories and you may see the same beach town in more than one category. There will be options for family, romantic and party getaways! Should we dive in…. (pun intended ;))
