alligators + tourist attractions  (1 Answer)

I have a phobia about alligators and yet I want somewhere warm for an end of Nov/Dec break. Are there any alligators on the beach at this time of the year - does anyone have personal knowledge of the situation

Apart from Disney what other attractions are there - we would like to do some touring but looking at the crime rate in Charleston/New Orleans we are scared as we came close to being run off the road in Washington DC near the Jeffereson library Plan to stay about 2-3 weeks so could do 1000/1500 miles comfortably with hotels interspersed

Can I add my thanks to VT which has been invaluable to me and enabled me to stay safe and see lots of places I wouldn't have seen. Only hope there is a last minute reprieve

"Hidden must see places" around the area  (7 Answers)

In a few weeks I will be flying into Tampa and staying at my grandparents house which is about 20 minutes north of Clearwater. I'm looking for some must see, like spectacular things/places to see around the area. Like amazing views and nature things, and hidden beaches that are beautiful that many not many people know about. I'm not into going to Busch Gardens or the Aquarium, I'd rather like go on a nature hike to a great view of the gulf. Anyone know of some great places/views to go to around this area. Sorry if this is confusing or bad wording- just trying to get my point across :)

Saltwater fishing  (2 Answers)

Just got to Tampa. Not much for the tourist traps. Came to enjoy R&R and being outside. I have not done very much saltwater fish but hear Tampa Bay is renowned for sport fishing. I was reading this little Kindle book "Florida Saltwater Fishing Beginner Guide" and now wanted to try some fishing this weekend. Tampa is known for Tarpon. Wondering if they are here year round or if they are seasonal visitors. I know what areas and tides I want and would love to try for a Tarpon. WOOOOHooooo !
