Time to Hit the Road: Heading out on Our Florida Road Trip!

The last few weeks have been a little hectic. I was in Charlotte back in March, then hopped over to St. Simons Island, Georgia, for a few days earlier this week. Now, we're heading out on a fun-filled road trip down to Florida's Gulf Coast!

Yes, it's been busy--and will continue to be that way well into the summer--but I wouldn't have it any other way. (Spoken like a travel blogger, right?!)

Bye, everyone! See you after I back into the mailbox!

Over the next week, Landon, Britton, and I will explore several spots in and around St. Pete Beach as a part of the Florida Superior Small Lodging Association (FSSLA) blogger road trip. In addition to being a great way to highlight locally owned and operated hotels and inns (a cause close to my heart!), this trip will also be the first trip that all three of us have taken--without any other family members--since we went to Savannah, Georgia, when Britton was six months old.

It will also be the longest road trip that Britton's taken to date, but we've got our fabulous road trip bag packed, her DVD player and her favorite movies, and a bunch of books for her to read. Plus, we're hoping she'll sleep most of the way down there!

We're stopping off in Orlando for a few days on our own before kicking off the FSSLA portion of the trip in Pass-a-Grille. We'll then head up to Indian Rocks Beach for a bit and finish off the trip with a stay in St. Pete Beach. If you've been to any of these areas, make sure to tell me what we should do and eat!

I've only been to the area once: Landon and I went to Clearwater, St. Petersburg, and Tampa last year for a whirlwind three-day trip. One this upcoming road trip, I'll have more time to explore the restaurants and beaches, so share your ideas for me in the comments.

I'll also be sharing as much as I can while we're on the road, so keep checking back on the blog, my Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter.
