Spring Travel Guide to the Gulf Coast of Florida

Springtime offers a busier season for those looking at traveling to Florida during March – May. Many families and students pack their bags and jet off south for Spring Break trips. While many towns can be bustling with travelers, we recommend heading to lesser known towns on the gulf like St. Pete Beach. Plus, our Gulf Strand Resort hosts wonderful condos, fit for every budget this prime season.


As temperatures begin to warm up and flowers start to bloom, you’ll want to make your way south. With the influx of people to the Sunshine State during these months, make sure to head to the beach. This time of the year allows for an all-day beach adventure! Did you know that St. Pete Beach has the largest undeveloped portion of public beach on the Gulf? That means there will be plenty of space to sprawl out and bask in the warm sun. Just make sure you don’t forget sunscreen and aloe!


Winter and spring allow for the strawberry season in Florida to flourish. This is a perfect way to get a taste of summer before the Southern heat kicks in. This delicious season runs from December to May, depending on the weather. Check out local farmer’s markets for the freshest strawberries in Florida and get a taste of the sweet Florida life.


There is no better time of the year than right now to visit Florida, especially if you’re a seafood lover. March brings a lot of people to the St. Pete Beach area for seafood festivals. Get your grub on with clam bisque, smoked fish, and (of course) Florida’s favorite Gulf fish, the Grouper.  


No matter where you choose to spend your days during Spring Break. Gulf Strand Resort, nestled right in town, is close to all that you could want to do along the Coast. Let the burst of budding life in Florida entice you to stay longer than expected. Book your vacation with us today by calling at  1-800-628-0053 or on our online site.
