Self-Catering Holiday Rentals in Florida Gulf of Mexico for Your Home Stay

Florida's Gulf of Mexico coast is a stylish and fun choice for holidays and it appeals to everyone from families, couples or singles to groups of friends who are looking for something special. And, it truly is a special area. Choosing a self-catering holiday rental is perfect for days spent enjoying the spectacular beaches and the Clearwater peninsula alone has 35 miles of sandy beaches and clear blue seas. Clearwater is home to some of the best attractions for all ages such as the Clearwater Marine Aquarium where visitors can enjoy exciting hands on experience as they learn all about the amazing underwater world of the Gulf of Mexico. Don't miss the Moccasin Lake Nature Park either, it's another great day out for the kids and you'll see many different animals and plants. For those with an interest in history and the past, a day at the Manatee Village Historical Park in Bradenton is a terrific way to learn about the pioneers who first settled this wonderful area. See Old Cabbage Head, a restored train engine from 1913 and the Wiggins Store, the village supermarket of its day which was built in 1903 and the Manatee Burying Ground where many of the first pioneers are laid to rest. Children of all ages will of course want to visit Busch Gardens in Tampa, one of the foremost theme parks in Florida, as well as the many other amusement parks in the area. Tampa is also home to the Florida Aquarium and the Ybor City which is now a National Historic Landmark and well worth spending a day exploring. Sarasota is where you'll find one of Florida's most upmarket shopping areas at St. Armands Key, though Longboat Key is also pretty exclusive. Choosing a vacation rental here is the smart way to enjoy this beautiful part of the US and there are any number of great restaurants, bars and cafes that are perfect for self-catering holidays and Tampa holds a Chocolate Festival each year, great for those with a sweet tooth. See the St. Petersburg pier or visit the Salvador Dali Village. The Everglades National Park is essential, take a boat trip and spot gators or see how many of the hundreds of species of birds you can count. There are so many interesting and appealing places on Florida's Gulf of Mexico coast that you'll want to return again and again.
