This idyllic Florida destination offers fun activities for visitors of all ages during every season of the year. Come here for a memorable family getaway, a few days of relaxation with friends, or a romantic escape. Every year, visitors from all over the country travel to Indian Rocks Beach to experience the blue waves, white sand beaches, and world-class shopping, dining and nightlife venues of Florida's Gulf Coast.
If you're among them, get the most out of your trip by staying in a private luxury vacation rental. Most rentals are less expensive than hotels and can offer all the space you need to store your beach gear and relax in style. Spend the morning enjoying breakfast on the balcony of your ocean condo or the terrace of your beach house.

After the sun sets over the Gulf, come home to your vacation rental and host a barbeque or a campfire on the beach.
Here are a few additional suggestions for your trip:

-Go deep sea fishing: Charter a boat and head into the deep water with an experienced guide. Game fish here include swordfish, marlin, and sharks.
-Take an eco-tour: Take a guided tour of Florida's coast by kayak. Learn more about native plants and animals and have close encounters with dolphins and manatees.
-Go scuba diving or snorkeling: The reefs and wrecks off the Gulf coast are teeming with life, including colorful fish, sharks, and sea stars.
-Play golf or relax in a spa: Tee off on one of the champion caliber courses close to Indian Rocks Beach, or spend the afternoon indulging in world-class pampering.
