Two Travel Lovers' Picks For The Top Beaches in Florida

You have decided to travel to Florida for your vacation. The only issue is which of the many beaches to choose from? There is an array of excellent beaches to visit in Florida that offer everything you could ask for, however after all the beaches we have traveled to, there are a few that we think are the best.
The travel channel has even done an entire show on the best beaches in Florida and so have we. So, without further ado, here are our top beaches in Florida...
**Clearwater Beach Florida: If you love big, white-sandy beaches, lots of sun, and plenty to do then Clearwater is a great choice. You'll enjoy Pier 60 and the gorgeous sunsets, a nice mix of art, history, and nightlife. Plus, if you are a boater, fisherman, swimmer, or outdoor type, then Clearwater offers a lot to do. Located on the Gulf Coast near Tampa and St. Pete's.
** On the Panhandle our choice is Destin Florida: Many will say Panama City Beach, which is a fun spot to go, especially on spring break, but if you want golfing, family fun, and beautiful beaches, Destin is your vacation destination. Located on the Emerald Coast, the white sand is a perfect playground for children and adults. The various condos and homes offer extraordinary accommodations. Not to mention the golf courses are world class. Such a great vacation that many people buy second homes in Destin.
**Key West: You can't mention Florida beaches without saying something about The Keys. Although all the areas in The Keys are amazing, Key West was our favorite to visit. Make sure you head over to Smathers Beach, drive up and down the main highway- A1A, and take part in the activities on Duval Street. Rent a buggy, visit the southernmost point, enjoy the arts and entertainment, and see the sunset at Mallory Square. Key West offers too much to list in one small article.
