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. It also means virtually pristine weather and conditions for your spring road trip. You’ll enjoy time on the beach, whether it’s a leisurely stroll or you’re setting up for a day of basking in the sun and working and your tan or swimming in the shimmering waters of the Gulf of Mexico. Local Floridians know the best places to enjoy a fun-filled spring road trip that includes activities for young and old, on water or for land lovers.
When there’s a beach at your road trip destination, whether your 30A trip is just a few days or a couple of weeks, you will no doubt want to make time to hang out at the many beautiful beaches along 30A. Pack the cooler and your other beach gear and prepare for fun on land or sea. Sunbathe on the beach, take a walk with loved ones, or build towering sandcastles. Take a dip in the Gulf and swim or explore the underwater world. Take a lesson or rent some gear for activities like stand up paddleboarding, snorkeling, or kayaking. You can even gather your group for a horseback ride down the beach.
Fishing is an activity that has no age or skill requirement and can be a full-day or partial day journey. Private and multi-group journeys are available. There are several experiences to choose from, including inshore, nearshore, and deep-sea fishing. Some charter companies take you to the flats, inlets, feeder creeks, bayous, and other areas for fly fishing. They also welcome young anglers and some offer lessons. Cast a line in search of redfish, tarpon, speckled trout, flounder, snapper, and more. Ask your chosen company about night fishing or add an extra thrill when you go shark fishing.
Snorkel and SCUBA Tours
Get wet and experience a whole other world during your spring road trip. Tap one of the many companies along 30A for tours that take you below the shimmering blue and green waters for the Gulf. Get close to bottlenose dolphins, sharks, manatees, rays, sea turtles and a variety of fish species. Ask about daytime or sunset tours, as well as gear rental for when you’ve built your confidence and want to strike out on your own.
As one of the most popular activities in the last several years, escape room facilities are popping up all over the country. They’re a fun way to take a break from the water or to escape a rainy day while still enjoying the fun attractions of the area. Rooms are rated by difficulty and even come with age and group-size suggestions, so you can choose the right adventure for your group. Enjoy themes like death row break outs, Navy SEALs, castle escape, and others that will stretch your logic and sleuthing skills. You have to solve all the clues and break out in 60 minutes to win, so quick thinking and teamwork are a must.
A 30A Trip to Dune Lakes
Add a unique experience to your list of spring road trip fun. Florida is one of just two states in the U.S. and five total places around the world where coastal dunes are a natural geographic feature. The dune lakes that form are typically shallow, irregularly shaped permanent bodies of water that are brackish and dark-colored due a 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.
As the cool winter months fade away and the weather warms with spring, you’ll love taking advantage of the perfect weather to get out and explore. The 30A area is dotted with state parks and hiking trails for hours of outdoor fun. No matter the weather, 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.
