My wife (73) and I (71) are looking to a one week mid April vacation in FL on the gulf coast. My wife is recovering from a total knee replacement. But, we hope by mid-to-late April she will be able to do some mild bicycle riding - hybrid - on a rental on trails and the like. No busy roads - maybe 10-15 miles. We will likely rent a condo for a week.
1. Due to the above, we need a reasonable priced non-stop flight from Denver, which seems to limit us pretty much to Tampa and Orlando (except Miami, where we don't want to go). SW airlines has a $139 fare to Tampa and the same back.
2. We have stayed in St Augustine before and Orlando and wanted the Gulf Coast this time.
3. We have been checking out Anna Maria Island as a possibility. Or the Bradenton area?
4. I love to swim, and we want to be right on the gulf.
Any other suggestions around the St Petersburg/Sarasota area?
ANy feedback GREATLY appreciated.
Thanks so much.
