Florida Travel Guide to a sunset outing with Mom

It won’t cost you anything but time: gather some folding chairs, a little snack (to toast Mom) and head to your closest beach. Mom took you to sandy shores to play in the water and build sandcastles – now it’s your turn to sit side by side and spend time together. No matter how many times you watch the sun slip into the sky, it’s always a magical moment, so if there’s not much to talk about, the sunset will cover those silent moments! Watch out sunset video, and check out some of our favorite sunset beach options below:

Make a day of it!

Hop on the Honeymoon Island State Park ferry, spend the entire day on Caladesi Island and finish with the sunset. You have four miles of  sandy shores to explore, boardwalk trails to walk and birds to watch. You won’t have many crowds so grabbing an ideal sunset spot will be easy.

Celebrate it!

If you’re looking for a carnival feel, join a crowd and celebration the sun and Mom. From Mallory Square in Key West to Pier 60 in Clearwater, sunset celebrations mark the moment. You’ll find a myriad of entertainers and artists but you can count on  jugglers or magicians to add their own magic to the moment.

Endless Vista

Ft. Myers Beach offers an endless vista for sunsets, from the wide stretches of beach, to the multitude of easy access points all along the stretch. And to top it off, the shelling is great, so time your visit to catch low tide while you’re at it and bring her a shell bouquet for mother’s day.
