Central Gulf Coast Rentals Vacation Rental Information

If your family has been pondering about the perfect vacation spot, a delightful blend of relaxation and excitement, then look no further than the vibrant and thrilling time you will have when you visit the Florida Central Gulf Coast. This area of the Florida coastline is known as the Nature Coast or the Big Bend of Florida. It stretches from Wakulla and Jefferson counties to the north down to Pasco County to the south. This is the perfect vacation spot for those who want the climate and white sands of Florida, but who want to avoid the crowds and bustle of Orlando, and the sometimes overwhelming culture of Miami. The Nature Coast truly is aptly named. Instead of amusement parks, you can get your thrills with authentic aquatic adventures. Instead of animatronics and mechanical animals, you will get the real thing-natural beauty and wildlife preserves. You will love the quaint and scenic villages that dot the coast, and the cultural perspective that American Indian settlements provide for the region, rather than the re-creations of these genuine sites that you will find in more touristy spots in the state.

The Nature Coast is home to such a variety of attractions that you will get to plan for. Your vacation rental site will depend on which of the attractions you want to enjoy, and for how long. If you long for the white sand beaches and the warm sparkling waters of the Gulf of Mexico, then take a look at the rentals in Longboat Key or Clearwater Beach, Florida. If freshwater adventures are more what you have in mind, then explore the rental options in Crystal River, FL or Homosassa,FL where you can fish the rivers and outlets to your heart's content, or even swim with the manatees beneath the waves. If you want to take advantage of some of the beautiful state parks and wilderness preserves in the area, then have a look at the rentals that are available in Levy County- home to Cedar Key Scrub State Reserve, Cedar Keys National Wildlife Refuge, Manatee Springs State Park, Goethe State Forest, and Devil's Hammock Wildlife Management Area- or Wakulla County-home to Bald Point State Park, the Bradwell Bay Wilderness, Ochlockonee River State Park, St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge, or the San Marcos de Apalache Historic State Park. With so many pristine parks and preserves, it begins to become obvious how the Florida Central Gulf area earned its "Nature Coast" nickname! If you stay toward the southern end of the Nature Coast, you will also be convenient to Tampa and St. Petersburg, if you would like to make a day trip to explore the attractions of a bigger Floridian city.

When you vacation in the Florida Central Gulf Coast region, you have the option of renting either houses or condos. Your decision should be based in part on the size of the home you need and access to attractions and amenities. Homes in the area will of course provide the most space, with many bedrooms, full kitchens, cable or satellite television, internet access, and more. Your house rental may even feature a private pool or spa, and maybe even a boat slip, if you stay on the coast. A condo rental comes with its own benefits. You may be able to get a more desirable location for a lower rental rate in a condo. You will also have access to the community's facilities, such as community pools, spas, fitness centers, sports areas, barbecues, and more. Some enclaves may even feature private beaches for renters to access. Wherever you decide to stay along the Florida Central Gulf Coast, you will treasure the shared view of the sun setting over the Gulf, and the memories of your happy times will keep you coming back to the region year and again!
