Sannibel Seaside Inn Room, Florida
Sanibel Island on the west coast of Florida is one of the hidden gems on the Gulf of Mexico. Sanibel Island isn’t crowded with high-rise condos and hotels. The pristine beach has been preserved around the island for visitors and families to enjoy its nature. White sandy beaches and calm Gulf waters are the backdrop of Seaside Inn at Sanibel Island.
Staying at Seaside Inn gives you access to the shell-covered 14 mile stretch of sandy beach. Tropical foliage houses nature at its best with pelicans and herons and in nearby waters you’ll find manatee and dolphins. Show your family the nature of Florida just out the front door of your hotel.
You don’t have to skimp on your lifestyle with in-room internet access, cable TV, and DVD player. Relax in your room on the Gulf with the breeze blowing through your doors and window while your surf the internet! Your family will have plenty of room to enjoy your weekend getaway in a standard room, a suite, or one of Seaside Inn’s beachfront cottages.
This tropical getaway is available year-round, and with rates in the Spring around $200/night, it’s a must-visit for your weekend away from home.

I was lucky enough to grow up in a place where my dad describes as “Paradise.” He’s describing his actual house and its location more specifically, but really, the area casually known as the “Redneck Riviera” is paradise for vacationers in the South. (It’s a real fake name for the Emerald Coast in Northwest Florida. It’s on the Wikipedia page so that means it’s real, right?)
Why, pray tel, is Florida’s Panhandle referred to as the Redneck Riviera? Because most of the tourists to the area come from Alabama, Mississippi, and Georgia, naturally. (Hey, don’t blame me. I didn’t name it.) In order to accommodate the millions (yes, millions) of tourists from the southern states, the stretch of beach that extends from Pensacola through Destin and on to Panama City Beach have thousands (yes, thousands) of hotels available to visitors.
When visiting the beach, my number one preference is to stay ON THE BEACH. I might pay a few extra dollars a night, but location, location, location is what’s most important when taking a BEACH vacation.
Here are the top 5 best-rated beachfront hotels in the panhandle of Florida (ie. Redneck Riviera). Read More »
Cynics may call Valentine’s Day a “Hallmark Holiday” (see: my husband), but many couples take advantage of incredible getaway vacation deals offered by Florida hotels for a romantic getaway weekend. It just so happens that this year, the big V-day falls on a Sunday (that’s February 14, 2010, just in case you forgot), so a romantic weekend away is the perfect way to celebrate your love and commitment.
