Afternoon drive to clearwater beach in Tampa!

We drove from Orlando to Clearwater beach for the afternoon adventures and dinner, the drive was pretty amazing we are so much in love with the palm trees, so we busted music out loud and started singing ”Maroon 5: what lovers do” making memories. We finally made it to Tampa and all I wanted was to park asap and feel the sunshine on my face and walk on the beach, I have seen pictures of the sand so it was my time to experience all that beauty.

The most beautiful and clean beach ever, we loved it, it was 55 degrees but coming from wisconsin, we were not going to complain about the weather, we waited for the sunset while picking some seashells and build a sandcastle. There is also a busy playground nearby that Armani was happy to hang out with other kids.

This was definitely the highlight of the trip, seeing our daughter embracing the beautiful weather and feeling the sand in her feet, she was waiting on the sunset and slowly getting tired but she braved the cold and had fun.It was getting windy and cold!

The beach started getting busy with lots of people within 10 min professional photographers, tourist, and local people came to view the sun going down!

A gentle reminder of why we travel and how fortunate we are to see so much of the world.

Every day’s an adventure when I step out of my door.

What to do and see in Daytona Beach with a toddler!!!!

Beautiful day and  75 degrees in Daytona beach, first time here with my family. With a three-year-old there are so many things you can do in Orlando except going to the theme parks. Take a day trip to Daytona beach and explore. we parked for $5 for full day and took out a stroller to explore. There are so many  different waterside playgrounds, bring a towel and dress up for adventure bring changing clothes. Stroll along the Riverfront Shops and Walk along the Boardwalk. If you have a good budget purchase family tickets for $20 to get you on 6 kiddie rides so much fun. After a long walk we decided to grab lunch at joe’s crab shack, we really had to take advantage of the good weather dine outside by the ocean and have crabs legs.

Daytona was a nice trip next time we are planning to stay in Hilton by the ocean, should be nice to wake up and see sunrise and sunset. We also hope to make it to Daytona 500 one day, we are a Nascar family so there is definitely another trip to Daytona.

I know this might look like something you can do within three hours and be done but believe me with a toddler its a lot and a nap time. We spend all day in Daytona Beach, we really drove a lot exploring all the sights that were affected by Irma hurricane .So when you go there have fun anf roll with it.
