Florida Beaches to Visit this Labor Day

Florida Beaches to Visit this Labor Day

Florida Beaches to Visit this Labor Day

Labor Day in Florida is a holiday commemorated by barbecues, fireworks, parades, and picnics as a sign of the end of summer. This is the perfect time to arrange a last-minute summer Florida beach trip to soak sunshine before fall arrives! You may call Florida home, but do you know where to head to? Consider the following fun-filled Florida beach destinations:

 

St. Augustine

The beaches in St. Augustine, Florida provide a diverse range of experiences, from beautiful State Parks to public beaches just a block or two from local eateries. You may enjoy spending the day at the exquisite Anastasia State Park, where vehicles are not permitted on the beach. However, if you find yourself yearning to cruise through the sand in your car, you may travel a little farther south to St. Augustine Beach, where automobiles are permitted in specified locations. Make sure to work up an apatite and take advantage of one of the many terrific local pubs and restaurants along A1A, or “Beachfront Avenue.”

 

St. Petersburg

St. Petersburg Beach, a barrier island in Florida, provides a variety of things to do for adventurers, including kayaking, windsurfing and tour groups.   The sparkling crystal blue waters are fantastic for swimming, fishing, kayaking, stand up paddle boarding and many other water sports, making it an excellent option for people seeking a more active getaway.

 

While there are major recognized restaurants in the area, diners will be pleased to find that the local independently owned restaurants offer an abundance of flavorful options during to your stay at the beach. The city streets are lined with unrivaled breakfast places, excellent steakhouses, and, of course, award-winning seafood options.

 

Destin

Between Fort Walton Beach and Santa Rosa Beach sits Destin, a Florida beach resort. Destin, which is continuously named among the greatest beaches in the country, is a popular vacation destination among Florida locals and more. Destin is notable for its beautiful sand beaches and warm Gulf seas. If you decide on making Destin your Labor Day holiday spot, some popular must-sees are Gulf Island National Seashore, Big Kahuna’s Water Park, and Henderson Beach State Park.

 

Panama City Beach

Panama City Beach, known as “Florida’s Forgotten Coast,” is a popular destination located in the Panhandle which is less crowded than other Florida beaches further south. There you can take in 27 miles of gorgeous white quartz sand Gulf beaches, which are fantastic for your Labor Day weekend escape. Kick off the festivities by putting on some cowboy boots and belt out Dixie songs at the Pepsi Gulf Coast Jam. Seeking something more tranquil?  Catch a sunset boat tour of the region, board a water shuttle to nearby Shell Island, or visit St. Andrews State Park to admire wildlife in their natural environment.

 

Amelia Island

When it comes to planning your day at the beach, Amelia Island has a great deal to offer including over 13 miles of beaches! Although many visitors opt to remain at the beach nearest to where they are lodging, it is encouraged to explore the many beach options Amelia Island has to experience.

 

Beaches are accessible from over 40 public access sites as well as a number of seaside parks. Many of the island’s most notable beaches are all accessible from established parks with facilities including restrooms and showers.

 

Florida Keys

The Florida Keys are known for their plethora of outdoor activities, and enthusiasts will enjoy the world-class fishing, diving, and snorkeling. The whole family may enjoy John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park, the first underwater park in the United States and home to the country’s only living coral reef, where you will be able to witness a diversity of undersea marine life in crystal clear waters.

 

Pensacola

Pensacola, the Gulf Coast’s hub, is known for its emerald-green waters and sugar-white sands. After taking in the views from one of the greatest beaches in the country, you must consume some of the tastiest seafood the state has to offer or simply just relax at an oceanfront hotel. Spend this Labor Day weekend listening to smooth sounds at the Community Maritime Park’s Gulf Coast Summer Fest: Jazz Edition or gaze into the night sky on the beach with telescopes provided by the Escambia Amateur Astronomers Association for a great night out under the stars.

 

Sarasota

Sarasota is known for its sun, sand, and pristine ocean views, but not all Sarasota beaches are created equal. Sarasota’s wide coastline is dotted with six islands, each with its own unique charm, recreational opportunities and scenic beauty. This vacation spot is perfect for nature-loving families! Children may participate in sand dollar hunting on Siesta Beach, take a kayak tour of South Lido Nature Park, or marvel at the distinctive Florida wildlife at Myakka River State Park.

 

 

Regardless whether you decide to venture to a Florida beach or simply relax at home, we hope you have a splendid Labor Day holiday weekend this year!

5 Tips When Downsizing Your Home

5 Tips When Downsizing Your Home

5 Tips When Downsizing Your Home

Houses

Most older individuals will contemplate downsizing or relocating to a home in a retirement community as they get older. Around 51% of retirees aged 50 and above downsize their houses once they retire and 77% of seniors intend on remaining in their current place of residence. It could be wise to downsize if you notice you have a lot of unnecessary extra space or too much clutter, you’re lacking the social connections you want, or the cost to maintain your current home isn’t practical.

If you are thinking about moving into a 55+ community or smaller house, here are five tips for downsizing your home:

Begin as early as possible and pace yourself

Starting your home downsizing project as soon as possible will give you time to get organized while avoiding any last minute stresses when getting rid of clutter when you finally relocate.

Place emphasis on what you’re getting rather than what you’re losing. Change is never easy, and there will be difficult days ahead. Take into account how your life will improve as a result of these adjustments. By starting your home downsizing project early, you will also have the time to spend enjoying your days and loved ones rather than cleaning, working, or searching for stuff.

 

Start small and concentrate on one room at a time

Trying to focus on what needs to get done in your entire home may feel like a large overwhelming project. Make a plan to dedicate time to one room at a time. We suggest taking care of practical must-haves in the beginning such as bathrooms and kitchen. Save going through sentimental items such as heirlooms for later as these items are the most difficult to part with. By starting out with the essentials and saving the sentimental times for later, you may find it easier to decide on what to keep once you have gotten into a rhythm with the allocation of your must-have basics.

 

Sell, donate or give away

For each area, create and label containers for things you wish to maintain, donate (or give to loved ones), and discard. It’s tempting to make a “maybe” pile, but avoid this as much as you can! At the very least, limit it to only a few items. Taking away the “maybe” option motivates you to stay on track and avoid dedicating too much time fixating on one item.

 

Should you have possessions you are holding on to because you imagine you might need them later, take into account if their potential use is worth the space they are occupying. For many situations, particularly with furniture, media, and cookery, these objects may be simply replaced in the longer run, perhaps with an even better version.

 

Prior to giving up anything with emotional value, check with your relatives to be certain what you’re letting go of isn’t someone’s cherished item. It however is not advisable to retain something presuming it’s significant to another family member without first asking.  Recognize that your kids and loved ones may just appreciate a few belongings, no matter how precious they may be to you.

 

Go digital

Photographs, documents, videos and your kids’ artwork can take up a lot of room. While you don’t have to get rid of everything, you can capture these items into a small device you’re able to plug in and view at whenever you like. If you have a large amount of items to digitize, you can even pay a business to do it for you.

Get some help if needed

One of the most difficult aspects about downsizing is not having much knowledge on what to anticipate. Should you have any concerns or questions, talk to others who have gone through this process before. Getting a start on this project may get overwhelming, however, hearing about their experience may further motivate you to follow their footsteps.

 

When it comes to going through the downsizing process, it may be a good idea to ask friends or family members for help, especially with problem areas and tough jobs. They can assist you with staying organized, letting go of items as well as help with any heavy lifting needing to be done.

Housing is an essential subject as we age, whether we choose to stay in our current house or move. If you have any questions about buying a Central Florida retirement home, we are here to help you embark on your life’s next chapter by finding your next dream home.
