This Underrated Florida Destination Is Great For A Beach Vacation
Just a 35-minute drive from Tampa Bay International Airport, Indian Shores is the perfect destination to relax while offering many activities that provide fun for the whole family.
Although Indian Shores is a year-round destination, October to May is the best time to visit, as temperatures are more comfortable, and there are fewer crowds at the beach.
Explore the coastline and the body of water behind Indian Shores with a boat tour, or rent a boat, kayak, or paddleboard. From April to October, you can see manatees swimming.
Most accommodations are on or near the beach, so you will wake up with soothing coastal sounds. Rent a bike or scooter to explore the picturesque barrier island.
There are 27 public beaches, including Clearwater Beach, which has Pier 60 — a 1,080-foot wharf and park that offers watersports, dolphin spotting, sunset viewing, and fishing.
