Beach
“A sandy beach that is home to cute beach cabanas and fun beachside activities, Sand Key Park is also a great place to find conch shells. Search for turkey wing shells, lightning whelk shells and keyhole limpet shells along the quiet shores, or spot endangered birds and turtles nesting. The park has a peaceful atmosphere, offering picnic areas and shelter for shade, where you’ll find a salt marsh with benches to observe herons.”

They often have quality live music which is a nice treat and you can sit inside or out. I highly recommend The Living Room for a nice evening out!”
