Visions of sun-drenched white-sand beaches permeate thoughts of Florida for the millions that flock to the state each year for vacation. For many, the perception of Florida is a concrete jungle with busy theme parks, congested freeways and beaches. However, you can still experience the Florida of yesteryear in Florida’s “Nature Coast” destination – complete with world-class golf courses and award-winning accommodations.
Florida’s Nature Coast, rimmed by wild, undeveloped, and pristine coastline, stretches from just north of Tampa/Clearwater to the Florida Panhandle. In 1867, World famous naturalist John Muir described the Nature Coast as “a string of counties studded with emerald-like gulf waters, deep springs and rivers, stretching along the same Florida coast.” Today, the immediate area just north of Tampa/Clearwater features two unique qualities - it remains one of the last unspoiled natural regions of Florida, plus offers golfers and families many affordable activities and adventures. There are over 30 golf courses along “The Trail”, natural, crystal-clear springs for swimming/snorkeling/diving, water-sport activities, fresh/salt water fishing, pristine beaches and nature park exploration. The pristine, warm spring waters are not only enticing to visitors, but are also home to the largest winter manatee population in North America. This region is the only place in North America where humans can legally swim alongside the manatee.
