Florida’s Gulf Coast – My Instagrams

Seeking inspiration for your trip to Florida’s Gulf Coast? Here are the Instagram photos I posted during my 8-day road trip along the Gulf of Mexico, from Clearwater to St. Pete, Anna Maria Island to Siesta Key, and Sarasota to Captiva Island.

(Yes, it is that beautiful.)

I’d head back to Florida’s Gulf Coast in a heartbeat. Surely, you can see why?

Coming up: in the next weeks I’ll be posting about my Florida itinerary, a few city guides, my review of a fabulous hotel, and the best beaches of the United States. Soon!

In the meantime, if you enjoyed this post, don’t hesitate to follow me on Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest and Twitter for more photos and stories from my travels!

      Thank you so much Shelly! These beaches are really incredible. Especially when there’s snow at home!!

  • Oh, I LOVE Clearwater Beach! The sand is really something else. I’ve never been to St. Pete, but it’s close enough that there really isn’t much of an excuse to miss it! Thanks for the pretty photos. 🙂
