Florida’s year-round sun and warmth is what makes it the ideal getaway no matter what time of year you’re looking to get away. Time on the beach, taking a plunge in the Gulf of Mexico, and several other romantic activities await. Local Floridians know the best places for a romance-filled break you’ll love as much as you love each other.
Whether you’re here for just a few days or you’ve planned a week or more of romance, you definitely want to spend plenty of time at the beach. Pack the cooler and your beach gear and prepare for fun! On land or sea, there’s a romantic activity for you. Sunbathe on the beach together or take a romantic sunset walk. Take a swim close to shore or explore the underwater world with a mask and snorkel or SCUBA gear. Take a lesson or rent some gear for activities like stand up paddleboarding or kayaking. You can even plan a romantic horseback ride down the beach.
The Coastal Biplane, better known as the Spirit of 30A, was built in 2010, but reflects the timeless look and feel of a classic 1930s biplane aircraft design. The Ferrari-red colored open cockpit of the Waco YMF-5 biplane seats the pilot and two side-by-side passengers – perfect for a romantic ride for you and your love. Look down for glimpses of land and sea, and the animals that inhabit it. You can opt for a short 20-minute cruise or choose one of their packages for more time in the sky. No matter which package you choose, you’re in for a thrill you’ll never forget.
There are plenty of ways to spend time in and on the water in the towns along 30A. For some private, romantic time on the water with your sweetheart, or a private cruise with friends or other couples, soak up the sun on a daytime or sunset sail in a catamaran. You might even spot pelicans or other sea birds flying overhead, or bottlenose dolphins or manatees out for a swim. Ask about champagne or dining options aboard the vessel.
Florida is one of just two states in the U.S. and five total locales around the world where coastal dunes are a natural geographic feature. Dune lakes are typically shallow, irregularly shaped permanent bodies of water. They are typically brackish and dark-colored due a unique mix of both salt and freshwater sources. Rent a kayak, canoe, or paddleboard for some fun on the water, purchase a combo freshwater/saltwater fishing license, or just relax and enjoy the day on the shoreline.
Explore the area together. The 30A area is dotted with state parks and hiking trails for hours of outdoor fun. Pack your sun gear, water, and trail snacks and head out to experience the land-based natural beauty of 30A. While you’re out in the wild, keep a lookout for local wildlife, including black bear, coyotes, deer, and osprey, to name a few. Take a break from the hike and stop in one of the picnic areas of the state parks and enjoy a romantic picnic for two.
There are several experiences to choose from, including inshore, nearshore, and deep sea fishing with just the two of you or a larger group. Some charter companies even take you to the flats, inlets, feeder creeks, bayous, and more for fly fishing. They also welcome all anglers, and some offer private and group lessons. Cast a line in search of lunch or dinner in the form of redfish, tarpon, speckled trout, flounder, snapper, and more.
Escape room facilities are popping up everywhere. Rooms are rated by difficulty and even come with age suggestions, so you can choose the right adventure for you and your sweetest. It’s the perfect activity for your couples’ trip as you work together to solve the clues and break out within 60 minutes to win.
