What time of the year you coming down? How long do you have? You can get round trip flights on Alligiant Air into St. Petersburg from around $250.
I've been posting pics and descriptions of my trips to the area beaches for the folks back home on Facebook.
Thanks BRC, the info would be much appreciated. We are flexible on timing. I was thinking late April until the end of May or so. Probably for about 4-5 nights. Is the area good too or is it strictly a beach destination? I'm fine with the latter, but the more options, the better.
Can't I just fly into Tampa and take a cab in? Maps say it's only about 28 miles.
