The best towns are the ones that have something for everyone.
My family and I live in the middle of North Central Florida. If you know anything about this area, you know it is hot, and flat, filled with farms and wildlife. It is a great place to raise a family, but when we want to have some fun we need to take a trip to the coast. Florida has a lot of great vacation destinations for weekend getaways, but our favorite is without question Tampa Bay. We don’t like theme parks, we like beaches and sports and live music, and Tampa, FL covers all those bases. The only problem we ever run into is during the hottest months of the year, when the Tampa heat can roast you if you aren’t prepared for it. I recommend a hotel with a high quality air conditioner, and a healthy amount of sunblock. Don’t apply it in the morning before you go out, take it with you as you explore Tampa, and you’ll thank me later. Aside from the beach trips, we think Tampa is even more fun in the colder months, of course in Florida the “cold months” only dip down into the 70s and 80s. When going to Tampa you literally never have to worry about the heating, just the cooling. Since the town is tourist friendly, you will find a lot of outdoor venues like the sports stadiums that have ample sections of cooling inside of them. Tampa isn’t just for the tourists, it’s where Floridians go to have fun.
