Road Trip to the Best Beaches in Florida
Florida is known for it’s theme parks, swaying palm trees and sparkling oceans. If you’re in Orlando, Fla, you’re in luck. The best thing about Orlando is that you are right in the middle of two major bodies of water – The Gulf of Mexico and the Atlantic Ocean. If you’re looking for a beach to go to you, you’re just about 1hr – 1hr ½ away from the best beaches in the country.
Let’s say you want to check out the Gulf of Mexico. The West Coast of Florida is gorgeous with powdery white sands and clear blue water. Clearwater Beach is the best beach to go to on the West Coast that is closest to Orlando. Clearwater is a great place to take your family or spend the day with friends.
Heading over to the east coast, Cocoa Beach is Florida’s surf capital and famous for it’s Ron Jon Surf Shop (also home to professional surfer, Kelly Slater). Cocoa Beach is about 45min-1hr away from Orlando and is a great beach for the younger crowd. So pack you’re car and take a short road trip to the beach!
