There are plenty of pristine, white-sand beaches in the area. Some with extensive facilities, some a little wilder. Perfect not just for sunbathing and swimming, but also kayaking, biking, hiking and admiring romantic sunsets. The Florida Aquarium enjoys a national reputation. It has thematic areas introducing the sea-dwelling and freshwater wildlife of the region, including sharks and alligators. An extremely family-friendly attraction, it has a water adventure area for children as well as a bar and grill for the adults.
