Florida in the Spring

Little Havana in Miami

Enjoy bustling Little Havana, in Miami.

Spring is a wonderful time to travel to Florida. The temperature tends to hover in the low 80s throughout the state, and humidity is low.

It’s a great time to visit the cities of Miami, Tampa, St. Augustine, Tallahasse, Orlando, and Naples. Many Florida Bed and Breakfasts are located in walkable, historic districts.

Explore the neighborhoods of Miami, many of which offer art strolls; galleries in the Bird Road Art District host an art walk from 7-10 p.m. the third Saturday of each month; There is an arts and culture street festival and gallery stroll every Friday evening in Little Havana; and galleries and showrooms in the Miami Design District stays open late the second Saturday of each month.

Treasure Island Florida

Sunset on Treasure Island.

Lounge on the fabulous beaches around St. Petersburg (St. Pete) by day: Treasure Island, Gulfport Beach Park, and the scenic Fred Howard Park. Then take advantage of the many restaurants, wine bars, and clubs in the city. Downtown St. Pete has lots of good places to dine while enjoying views of the waterfront: Ceviche has a romantic atmosphere and outstanding Tapas; Hurricane Seafood Restaurant features amazing sunset views over the Gulf of Mexico and fabulous crabcakes and grouper sandwiches.

Find a Florida Bed and Breakfast in the middle of a bustling, colorful town like Key West or a town steeped in history like St. Augustine. Explore the town on foot as much as you can, seeking interesting neighborhoods often overlooked by tourists. Ask a local (the innkeeper) where to go, and have fun exploring Florida this spring.

The Salvador Dali Museum in St. Petersburg, Florida

Summer in Central West Florida means splashing in cool waters, boating in Tampa Bay, and lounging on the beaches of Sarasota. It means escaping the heat in cool museums: the Salvador Dali Museum in St. Petersburg, the Ringling Museum of Sarasota, and the Tampa Museum of Art.

Summer in Florida means lingering over dinners in such restaurants as: St. Petersburg’s Ceviche Tapas Bar & Restaurant, where pitchers of sangria accompany live flamenco; Restaurant BT in Tampa, home to perhaps the most innovative (and delicious) Vietnamese cuisine in the country; and CafĂ© L’Europe in Sarasota, featuring elegant French, Caribbean, and Spanish fare.

Guests of Central West Florida Bed and Breakfasts take advantage of all these places and activities, and more. They also enjoy their luxurious accommodations. The Stanford Inn, a Bartow Florida Bed and Breakfast, boasts a heavenly wrap-around porch that is the perfect place to enjoy a gourmet 3 course breakfast, read a book, or converse over a glass of wine.

If you hope to find a place to relax during your Central West Florida Vacation, stay in a Florida Bed and Breakfast.
