If you’re looking to spend a little time in a gulf-side town where things like traffic and boredom are nonexistent, then look into Redington Shores.

You can choose your Florida vacation spot by closing your eyes and putting your finger on a random place on a map of the state. You can also just go to the same overcrowded hotels and attractions everyone goes when they visit the Sunshine State. Or, you can go somewhere that has everything you want in a destination - and none of what you don’t.

Lined by gorgeous beaches, Redington Beach is a small community on the Gulf of Mexico just west of Tampa Bay. It’s full of excellent restaurants, a little nightlife, and a spate of beach rentals ideal for just about any type of traveler.

Although it’s an ideal place to soak in some rays and perhaps take a dip in the gulf’s mellow surf, there’s also plenty to do in and around Redington shores. This includes:

  • Redington Pier, a historic fishing pier that juts out more than 100 feet into the water, where you and the family can fish for hours.
  • Suncoast Seabird Sanctuary, a hospital for pelicans, owls, cormorants, herons, and many other injured avians, all of which you can view from at the beachfront, open-air facility.
  • Clearwater Beach, which is probably one of the busiest beaches in the Tampa Bay area and is full of loads of restaurants and shops.
  • Fort DeSoto, a historic site that’s also home to pristine, award-winning beaches.

There are countless other things to do here as well as in neighboring area, including Busch Gardens, Lowry Park Zoo, the Dali Museum, Big Cat Rescue, and the Ringling Museum of Fine Arts. These attractions – and those lovely beaches – make Redington Beach a choice destination along Florida’s gulf coast. The right beach rental awaits you here; begin your search today.
