Why You’ll Love West Coast Florida

West Coast Florida BenefitsDid you know that about a thousand people move to Florida every day? Many of them are moving to the beautiful communities of Florida’s West Coast, including St. Petersburg and Madeira Beach.

Here’s why you’ll love visiting or moving to West Coast Florida:

Relaxed pace of life

Things are relaxed on Florida’s West Coast. Our year-round sunshine, white quartz beaches and beautiful natural landscapes are sure to soothe your spirits and put you in a good mood.

Delicious seafood

Florida seafood is known for being fresh and delicious, and there’s no better place to enjoy it than in one of the West Coast’s many outdoor restaurants.

Tons of culture

Cultures buffs will love Florida’s West Coast. Art lovers will enjoy St. Petersburg’s Salvador Dali Museum, for example, and Sarasota is known for its opera, theatre and symphony orchestra.

Unique ecosystems

See if you can spot some of the more than 400 bird species that make their home in the J. N. “Ding” Darling National Wildlife Refuge, which is the largest undeveloped mangrove ecosystem in the U.S. You can also take a family trip to Everglades National Park, the only subtropical preserve in North America.

Outdoor fun

Whether you enjoy nature walks, world-class golfing, fishing or just lounging on the beach, there’s no shortage of opportunities for fun in the sun along Florida’s West Coast. One of our favorite things to do is to rent a jet ski from Woody’s Watersports in Madeira Beach. You’ll enjoy fantastic views and might even meet a dolphin or two. Try it the next time you’re in West Coast Florida!
