A Quick Trip to Naples

As I mentioned in a few of my posts, one of my goals is to go check out as many beaches as I can here in Florida. So my girlfriend and I decided to head down to Naples and see what the beach was like there.

Not sure where Naples is? Naples is about as far down south as you can get on the Gulf Coast of Florida. It’s a good two and a half hour drive from where I live up in St. Petersburg.

The Beach at Fort De Soto Park

One of my goals for 2010 is to check out as many beaches as I can here in Florida. The main reason being that each beach seems to be unique in its own way. With that in mind, I decided to go and check out the beach at Fort De Soto Park yesterday.

Fort De Soto Park was named America’s Top Beach by TripAdvisor in 2009. It appears that they loved the “spectacular combination of soft white sand, calm, clear water and a laid-back atmosphere.”

I can completely agree with all the above, as I found it to be my favorite Florida beach so far. It really amazed me as to how white the sand was and how clear the water appeared. Unfortunately, it was still a tad too cold to actually get in the water.

Sunset on Treasure Island


Of all the reasons I moved to Florida, the ocean was the most important one. Ever since I lived in Hawaii I have been addicted to what it has to offer. Not only is the ocean an awesome place to swim and hang out, but it also creates the coolest sunsets I have ever seen. The photo above was taken last night on Treasure Island.

Watching the sun drop down below the water is an incredible experience and something everyone needs to experience in their lifetime. It’s pretty crazy how fast it starts to drop once it gets near the horizon.

How to Move Across the Country

Well it’s no secret that I’m a big fan of moving around the country. Since graduating college, I’ve moved around the country a few times as you can see in the map above.

I’ve learned quite a few things about moving over the last few years and wanted to share my advice with anyone planning (or thinking about) a big move. Keep in mind that I did not using a moving company at all so these are all tips based on moving yourself (it’s more fun this way).
