we were in the St Petersburg, Clearwater, Tampa, and Treasure Island areas. Treasure Island is a kick back pretty quiet area, mostly old people like me!!!
Water was pretty cold though. Condo even had an elevator in it, for the old people of course. Nice place to visit but prices are pretty up there for basics like food. Gas was just about the same as in Ohio 3.35/gal. Too much traffic for me to ever want to live there, both in cars and people.
