Clearwater Marine Aquarium

While the primary mission of Clearwater Marine Aquarium is the rescue and rehabilitation of injured wildlife, it has come to mean a lot more - to not only the local community and the residents of the aquarium, but also to generations of visitors who discover an entire world of life and love beneath the waves.

Of course, the star attraction at Clearwater Marine Aquarium is Winter, a bottle nose dolphin rescued in 2005 after being caught in a crab trap at 3mo old. By the time she was found, the trap lines had entangled her tail and cut off circulation - resulting in the eventual loss of her tail flukes. Despite all odds, Winter managed to not only survive, but thrive.

Of course, a dolphin's tail is perhaps the single most vital tool used for swimming - normally dolphins propel themselves by moving their tail up and down. Winter adapted to the loss of her tail by learning to flex her body side to side (like a shark) - but after quite a lot of struggle and research, she has been fitted with a prosthetic tail. The first of its' kind, Winter's artificial tail enables her to swim normally, and play with the other dolphins at the aquarium.

Winter isn't the only permanent resident - there are sea turtles, pelicans, sharks, rays, and even a trio of river otters named Cooper, Oscar and Walle. All in all, it's a great time for the whole family, and a wonderful inspirational experience.

Florida Botanical Gardens

The Florida Botanical Gardens inspires and educates visitors by showcasing 10,000 kinds of plants, as well as creatures and natural resources in motivational surroundings that promote environmentally friendly techniques.

Originally a mere 10 acres occupied by the Extension Service, Florida Botanical Gardens underwent extensive development from 1991 through 2000 to become the 182 acre showcase it is today. It is bisected by McKay Creek, a beautiful meandering stream that helps bring life to this natural reserve.

It's called "Gardens", plural, for a reason - within the natural reserve exist 10 topical gardens including The Butterfly Garden, The Herb Garden, The Native Plants Garden and more. In addition to these, there are three formal gardens - The Wedding Garden, The Tropical Walk and The Tropical Courtyard. The Florida Botanical Gardens also holds 60 acres of natural habitat, carefully preserved and still undergoing restoration.

Many locations within the gardens are also home to artistic expression - such as water fountains, murals, mosaics and other hand painted items. Paved paths and boardwalks make exploring the different garden areas a natural progression, and three bridges cross McKay's Creek.

Bring the family and spend a day. The Gardens are open almost every day of the year, and it's fun for the whole family. There are even fixed musical instruments throughout that the kids will love.

Seminole Lake Country Club

Located on the banks of Long Bayou and Cross Bayou, Seminole Lake Country Club is a must play semi-private club in Pinellas County. The golf course has Paspalum tees, fairways and greens which resemble more of a northern grass than your typical Florida Bermuda style grasses. Most of the fairways are very wide and generous and the greens are also big and have great contouring. The course has plenty of doglegs, and of course, water and each hole has its own unique character.  We are the closest full-length regulation golf course to St. Pete Beach, Madeira Beach, Reddington Shores, and others.
