Where Did We Go Wednesday? Siesta Key Beach

Siesta Key Beach is dubbed the number one beach in the United States by TripAdvisor. And From these pictures you can see why.

This is all just a couple of weeks after hurricanes swept through the western side of Florida. Our trip was booked over a month before the Hurricanes happened and so we weren't sure what we were even going to get to see and what kind of condition the beaches were in. Yes, there was lots of evidence of debris around in other parts of Florida but Crews had done a wonderful job of cleaning up the beaches right away.

Someday I would love to bring my family back to this beach. We weren't there during tourist season which is the time that all the retirees come. So it was not crowded at all but I do understand that it gets quite crowded especially on weekends and is difficult to find parking which may be another reason to rent a cottage nearby.

We rented a cute little beach cottage bad was literally only a block away from the beach so it was an easy walk but if you are willing to walk that much rather than be directly on the beach you can get a rental at a much more reasonable rate.

We ate in the Siesta Key Village and had a great time. In the bottom corner of the picture above you may be able to see that the Budweiser horses were parading through town for no other reason other than a business paid for them to come it sounded like. It was quite a spectacle to see and a surprise.

It was a wonderful girls weekend and perhaps we will be going here again next year or maybe somewhere else. Due to a mechanical snafu our flight did not leave as scheduled and we had to stay another night in Florida and we're giving vouchers for a future trip which may just be used for our next girls weekend.
