Central West Florida

4.1
The obvious draws of Central West Florida tourism remain its long sandy beaches, diverse wildlife, sparkling springs, and scenic rivers. Visitors also flock to this part of the Sunshine State for the lures of its big cities, such as Tampa, and the antique charms of its small towns, such as Dade. With a flourishing arts scene and bustling downtown area, St. Petersburg draws young crowds, while Clearwater offers active vacationers a vast range of year-round options for water sports. Winter home to manatees, Crystal River is the only place in the country where animal lovers from around the world can interact with these gentle giants in their natural environment. Whether you're looking for ways to cool down in the sizzling summer, awaken your inner naturalist, or have fun in the great outdoors, the emerald coast of Central West Florida is the right place for you. Take a peek at our international travel planner: Central West Florida and its charms laid bare and easily scheduled.
