After the amazing man-made wonders of Orlando, Florida's second biggest tourist draw is completely natural - for many visitors the sensational beaches are Florida's real star attraction. Home to many of the USA's top ranked beaches, millions of holiday makers flock to the east coast of Florida every year. Whether heading straight for the beach or looking for a relaxing end to your holiday after time in Orlando, there are hundreds of miles of sensational sandy shoreline and welcoming beach resorts along Florida's Gulf Coast. The full length of Florida's Gulf Coast runs just over 700 miles from the northernmost beach resort of Pensacola right the way down to the Florida Everglades in the Southwest corner of Florida. At TailormadeFlorida we concentrate on the 250 miles of coastline between the New Port Richey and Spring Hill area all the way down to Marco Island.
Away from the beach there is no shortage of attractions. See alligators, manatees and other wildlife up-close in hundreds of nature reserves along Florida's Gulf Coast or, if you prefer more sporty outdoor entertainment, you can choose from around 400 fantastic golf courses or pick from a massive selection of water based activities. Other popular attractions include Weeki Wachee Springs water park in Spring Hill, Busch Gardens theme park in Tampa, Ringling Museum of Art in Sarasota and the Edison Ford Estate in Fort Myers. A wide range of accommodation options, from small motels through to huge beachfront villas, and an endless variety of dining choices mean Florida's Gulf Coast offers something for everyone.
