I have been lucky to visit so many places courtesy of old Uncle Sam,and I will always be grateful for those experiences. I am choosing just some of the sweet places we have lived/visited and places that I usually feel safe in suggesting to others as ideal vacation spots.
Of course there are far more areas, towns & cities in each of these states that are fantastic destinations. I am just taking a little walk down our personal memory lane and refreshing my own brain cells.
We were stationed in the Tampa area for 3 years and had great fun venturing out and seeing all that this area of the country has to offer.
And, the northern portion of the Gulf Coast, particularly Pensacola, is lovely as well. We were stationed in Pensacola twice during Bill's career. More beautiful beaches, with their sugar white sand, can not be found anywhere.
Warm Gulf breezes, herons, egrets, pelicans, manatees, dolphins and the occasional alligator greet you. There is so much to offer here along Florida's Gulf Coast...go inland a bit and find Lake Wales, home of the beautiful Bok Tower and Gardens.
Tampa Bay, St. Petersbug and Clearwater Florida....Sarasota, North to Pensacola, South to Key West, the most southern point in the US or East to St. Augustine, lovingly referred to as America's Oldest City.
Florida can be a vacationer's paradise....
