Beaches Near Tallahassee In the Winter Time

Hi- Does anyone know if there are any beaches outside of Tallahassee (max 4-5hrs away) that would still be warm and nice to get into the water around this time. We want to take some out of town family members to the beach next week!

I doubt any beach water is warm enough even as far South as Ft Myers in the Winter Time. Now you might be able to walk in the water knee deep but to immerse yourself totally ... not for me.

Got to agree with AhHa--it is way too cold for swimming unless you're into that insane polar bear thing. Water temps will be in the 50s I'd guess in the Gulf waters. Shoot, go for Wakulla Springs right down the road--it is 68 degrees year round if you must swim.

Even St. George Island's gulf water doesn't get to a comfortable level until maybe May.

Good luck!
