    • Bridge jumping spots?

      Florida Keys Aug 1, 2016 at 9:50 AM

      Hello,

      I am planning a visit to the Keys soon and was wondering if there are any good/safe spots to do some bridge jumping from? I was told by a friend about the Sugarloaf Key 'Jumping Bridge' location which looks like a great spot, is anyone aware of similar locations, perhaps parts of the old 7-mile bridge?

    • Which Dive Site is better

      Florida Aug 7, 2016 at 6:42 PM

      Looking for some advice.... For snuba and snorkling, which is better? Duck Key or Sombrero Reef

      I was looking at doing a charter..

      (1) http://www.diveduckkey.com/

      Dive Duck Key has their own sites they go to and apparently dont have another dive shop within 10 miles of their shop. Seems the wild life is kinda slack and you mostly see sand and rock.. not much coral and fish etc. I at least gather this info by watching youtube videos of dives at this site. Am I wrong? Is it worth it?

      (2) http://www.tildensscubacenter.com/

      I was looking at this charter as well which goes to Sombrero Reef. Sombrero Reef seems more lively but is also more packed.

      Which one do yall recommend. Thank you

      Also we were looking at snorkeling with http://keysdiver.com/index.htm ... the 3 stop trip. Does anyone have any experience with this trip? Thank you

      Miami beach with 3 and 1 year old

      Miami Beach Aug 14, 2016 at 8:59 AM

      Hi, is miami beach family friendly? We have a 3 year old and 1 year old. So that means restaurants with stroller, highchair etc for breakfast lunch and dinner. I'm not from America and from my research it doesn't seem to be overly family friendly. Also any advice on things to do. We will be travelling in march so I don't think it's beach season for the kids to be swimming

      I am planning a trip to Busch Gardens. Which part of the city is the best to stay? i.e North Tampa, South Tampa, etc. I not trying to spend a fortune but I don't want to worry about crime either. I have seen several reviews that say the area and hotels around the park are not very safe. I was looking at the Laquinta right by the park, but I have also looked at the Clarion and other hotels near by. Any advice is greatly appreciated.

      In a few weeks I will be flying into Tampa and staying at my grandparents house which is about 20 minutes north of Clearwater. I'm looking for some must see, like spectacular things/places to see around the area. Like amazing views and nature things, and hidden beaches that are beautiful that many not many people know about. I'm not into going to Busch Gardens or the Aquarium, I'd rather like go on a nature hike to a great view of the gulf. Anyone know of some great places/views to go to around this area. Sorry if this is confusing or bad wording- just trying to get my point across :)

      Just got to Tampa. Not much for the tourist traps. Came to enjoy R&R and being outside. I have not done very much saltwater fish but hear Tampa Bay is renowned for sport fishing. I was reading this little Kindle book "Florida Saltwater Fishing Beginner Guide" and now wanted to try some fishing this weekend. Tampa is known for Tarpon. Wondering if they are here year round or if they are seasonal visitors. I know what areas and tides I want and would love to try for a Tarpon. WOOOOHooooo !

    • Best things to do with guests from NC??

      by kelsey8486 Online Now Sep 10, 2010 at 8:36 AM

      Hello-

      My boyfriend and I have friends coming down from North Carolina and we want to take them out Friday night. We just can't figure out the best place to go, and we don't want to get too out of control because we already have plans for Saturday that include tons of dancing and other excitement!

      Details:
      1) One person is under 21 (She's 20)
      2) We want to have fun...obviously lol
      3) A few drinks (for the 21 & up)
      4) Music (but still be able to hear each other speak without screaming)
      5) And not packed into a club where we can barely move.

      First thoughts:
      - Ybor- but we don't really want to go to a club, too loud and crowded.
      - New World Brewery in Ybor- Amazing place with a great atmosphere, but under 21 friend can't get in...
      - Channelside- I know all of the clubs, and Splitsville is 21 & up, but is everything??? Could we just sit in the courtyard area, are there still places to get drinks?

      Any idea's would be helpful, or if you have any more information on Channelside please let me know! Thanks in advance!!
