What the “Hitch” is on the back of your truck!?
When you bought your pickup truck you probably paid for a towing package. You had dreams of tailgating, towing your boat, your jet-skis, an RV or a cargo trailer. But it’s probably just sitting there empty. It seems like a waste to have that 2-inch square hole there looking for something to do. Not anymore because we have plenty of uses for a hitch on your next trip to the beach. Get ready because some of them are really “out there”!

It was always our dream to live at the beach in Florida. When we moved to the Gulf Coast in 2017, every moment we spent at the beach seemed unreal. In the beginning we were so excited, "We get to live here!"

Which side of Florida is better for beaches!
Choosing the right beach for your road trip or vacation can be difficult and confusing. No matter which Florida beach you choose, you can be sure it will be beautiful. But will it offer the experience you are looking for? The beaches on both coasts of Florida have no shortage of things to do: water sports, entertainment options, and great food.

Or stay at a Gulf beach, such as Sanibel Island with no waves when you love to boogie board! There is a perfect beach destination in Florida just right for you. That’s where we come in. Our blog posts show you, up close and personal, the beach vibe. The texture of the beach sand, the clarity of the ocean water, the amenities, and the parking. It’s easy to choose your dream beach destination and travel to it. You might even choose two or three.
