Long Walk on the Beach

It is easy to take the beach for granted living in the Sunshine State. This weekend, spend some time with someone dear and go explore a stretch a beach that you have never visited. We recommend Kathryn Abbey Hanna Park, Anastasia State Park or Fort Clinch for long quite walks and great beach combing.
