Things to do on Florida’s Gulf Coast with Kids

It is no mystery to many Florida’s Gulf Coast is a beautiful place to visit with wonderful weather.  We were lucky enough to spend 5 weeks in this area after our first child. This afforded us with the opportunity to hit up every town in that area: Clearwater, Tampa Bay, St. Pete’s, Dunedin, Tarpon Springs, New Port Richey, Hudson and Indian Rock to name just a few.
