Popcorn is great with a movie or possibly for stringing around an old-fashioned Christmas tree, but it’s a little less universally loved when it’s applied to the ceiling as a texture. “Popcorn
Why I Love The Beach Towns
Dated: September 27 2017
Wait??? There are 11 Beach Towns??? Who knew??
When someone asks me which beach is better, I can never give a answer!!! They all have their uniqueness and charm that makes it hard for me to give just one answer. Here are the reasons why I have a hard time picking one!
That Beach... it may be the prettiest of the all the beaches!
Pier 60- Every night they have entertainment, vendors and food on the Pier. Then, every Friday and Saturday night they show movies at the Park by the Pier. One is usually a family movie and the other is more adult. So fun to do!!!
So many restaurants on the beach! Nothing is better than enjoying your meal while looking at the beach. It is good for the soul!!
The homes along Gulf Blvd are GORGEOUS!!!! (This includes Philadelphia Phillies, Ryan Howard's home) I love to drive up and down this section just to look at the homes!
Zoning for the Belleairs do not allow for commercial buildings!
IRB as it is know to the locals has a small beach town feel. It is a great mixture of locals and tourist.
IRB Festivals. Every Fall you have the Taste of IRB and in the Spring "Beach Fest and many more in between! Mix of locals and tourists, they are a fabulous family friendly event!
The Restaurants.... So many of my favorite restaurants are located in IRB. Aqua Prime, Crabby Bill's, Villa Gallace (just to name a few!), you can not go wrong!
With over 90% of the properties being condos in Indian Shores and only 1 lot for public parking, the beaches along this stretch of the coast are not overly crowded.
Smuggler's Cove Miniature Golf... fun times for the whole family!
Salt Rock Grill- fantastic meal, great atmosphere. Great for cocktails or dinner!
Redington Shores, North Redington Beach, and Redington Beach- Each one is its own individual town. Out of the 3, Redington Beach is the most residential, mostly comprised of Single Familiy Homes. Redington Shores and North Redington is a combination of Single Family Homes and Condos.
Sweet Sage Cafe- Open from 7am-2pm, the food here is AMAZING. Breakfast all day and a lunch menu too and fresh squeezed Tangerine Juice all day!
Redington Beach Town Park - Not only is this a great park to take children too, but they also have some great events here; Santa and Holiday Tree Lighting, Easter Egg Hunts, Community Parties just to name a few!
The small fishing town getting ready to get a re-fresh! There is a new downtown revitalization getting ready to happen, shops, restaurants and hotels along the marina.
ROC Park- Baseball fields, concerts, fishing tournaments and movies in the park. There is always something going on!
The Sweet "Brew"-nette- Organic coffee, pastries and sandwiches. Their Muffins are to die for!!! I have to stop for one everytime I drive past~
John's Pass - whether you are local or just visiting, it is a fun way to spend the day! Browse at the shops, eat at local restaurants or go on a dolphin cruise! They have it all here.
Sunset Beach- a little slice of paradise. The soft sandy beaches, reminiscent of Key West and Caddy's on the Beach.
Treasure Island has great restaurants and bars that are an easy walk and a great time!
The beach.... a wide expanse of sand on par with Clearwater Beach (in my opinion) and home to the "Sanding Ovations" Sand competition every November.
Gulf Blvd is comprised of mainly Condos, but the inlets have spectacular waterfront homes.
Pass-a-grille- the southernmost tip of St Pete Beach. Home of the Hurricane Restaurant that has a fabulous sunset view.
Spinners one of only 22 rotating restaurants in the US. Great views, great service, great food. It is a must!
Jimmy B's- Beachfront Bar with live bands and singers most days and nights.
Neighborhoods tucked alongside the Intracoastal that give you small town community feel.
As you can tell, each town has their own charm and reasons to pick them! I can not choose and I am lucky enough that I live in the mix and all are my playground!
