Beach

We are planning on staying in Tampa for a few days and then heading to the beach. Which one is the big question.? It will be over Spring Break, so I would like a quieter beach, meaning not a big party area. Hope to not have to drive more than an hour from the airport. I would like to stay on the beach. Any suggestion of beaches and hotels would be appreciated.

thanks

1. Re: Beach

I think Clearwater Beach will probably have more of the Spring Break crowd than St. Pete Beach - St. Pete tends to be a bit quieter. Not sure what type of hotel you are looking for. The Don Cesar is probably the nicest hotel on St. Pete beach, but can be expensive. There are also several smaller beaches between St. Pete and Clearwater - Redington, Madeira, Indian Rocks, etc. where you can look. I have stayed at the Doubletee at Redington Beach before. It was nothing fancy, but quiet, clean and priced well. I would recommend a rental car if staying there, though. You may get better info on St. Pete Beach Forums as well.
