If you are looking for a nice beach getaway before the weather gets too cold, check out these top 5 places along the coast of Florida.

1. St. Augustine
First up, St. Augustine is a historic town on the Atlantic Ocean, very close to Jacksonville. One of the many attractions there is its food tours. The town and beach are family friendly and great for all ages. The town is unique and similar to Savannah, Georgia and Charleston, South Carolina with its cobblestone streets. St. Augustine is also home to the small private college, Flagler College.

2. Anna Maria Island
Anna Maria Island is located on the Gulf of Mexico and is known for The Manatee Beach Park. The island has a small town with year-round events that are very laid back with the island’s small population of 2,500 people.

3. Captiva Island
Captiva Island is one of Florida’s most beautiful beaches. The island has a small town feel and is very private, like Watercolor Beach. The town and beach are not as busy which makes it more relaxing. The town and beach are better for adults with not as many activities for kids. The island has the perfect combination of clear water and white sand.

4. Key West
Key West is a laid back beach town which is very different from Watercolor Beach. With one of its multiple islands have “beach deer” roaming the island. It is very close to Miami and only 90 miles from Cuba. Key West is a hot spot for college students on spring break. The town and beach are very laid back and just a great place to relax. Key West is located on the Gulf of Mexico and has clear water, just like the rest of the beaches on The Gulf of Mexico.

5. Watercolor Beach
Finally, Watercolor Beach is a great place for people of all ages. It is very private, and you could almost never run out things to do there. There are many pools and beaches, also there are community events along 30A from May to October. Almost any beach you visit on 30A is beautiful, but especially Watercolor.
