TREASURE ISLAND, FL - AUGUST 26: Beach goers take advantage of a sunny morning ahead of Tropical Storm Isaac on Sunday August 26, 2012 at Treasure Island, Florida. Although Isaac is currently a tropical storm, it is expected to grow to hurricane strength by the time it reaches the Tampa Bay area.

Good news for us…Looks like Tampa Bay is the home for the country’s second best beach.  Bad news…this will bring more snow birds here screwing up traffic for us.

    3 Favorite Beaches to Visit in Tampa Bay

    • Clearwater Beach

      Clearwater Beach might be the very first beach you think of when you think of the Gulf Coast. That might be because been Trip Advisor’s No.1 Beach in the U.S.A. back in 2016, 2018, and 2019.

      There are also so many accessible restaurants nearby, which offer a lot of great happy hours.

    • St. Pete Beach

      Just south of Clearwater Beach is St. Pete Beach. St. Pete recently placed #5 on Trip Advisor’s list for best beaches in the world. Postcard Inn on the Beach, one of St. Pete’s most popular beach bars is a great place to grab a drink and even play some volleyball. More of a Bloody Mary person? You might want to check out Rick’s Reef and their Bloody Mary bar.

    • Indian Rocks Beach

      Indian Rocks Beach gives off much more of a local vibe. The traffic isn’t as bad as Clearwater Beach or St. Pete Beach gets, and they even have a Crabby Bill’s location.
