When Summer Ends

As summer comes to a close and the majority of the country prepares for cold weather, Florida is opening its doors. Snowbirds return, travelers secure winter respite accommodations, and locals dust off their ‘winter gear.’ For those looking to catch a glimpse into what makes Florida such a popular destination, here are a few of our favorite things to do when summer ends. 


We are in the fishing capital of the world, so if you slightly enjoy fishing or have always wanted to try your hand at it, this is the place. With 11,000 charter captains in Tampa Bay alone, there are abundant choices along with more water than one could explore in a lifetime. Here at Fisherman’s Cove, we have our very own charter captain on-site to provide a day’s trip or just some refined guidance at our free weekend fishing clinics. 


If you’d rather observe nature than interact with it, the numerous state, county, and National parks that surround us will leave you with more choices than time. Our private dock backs the well-known Terra Ceia Aquatic Preserve, and the Terra Ceia State Preserve is just around the corner. From there, you have several other preserves and parks within fifteen minutes drive. Here is a list of favorite nearby nature attractions. 

Fort DeSoto

Skyway Fishing Pier State Park

Robinsons Preserve


Florida is home to 1,350 miles of coastline and some of the world’s most renowned beaches. Need we say more? White sands, picturesque sunsets, and warm shallow water are just the beginning of what our beaches have to offer. Here are a few of our most popular locations. 

St. Pete Beach

Anna Maria Island

Siesta Key


Aside from the vast outdoor beauty, Florida has numerous attractions to keep your hearts and minds full. We’d say that vacation is meant to be lived spontaneously, but if you know you’re going to be here for any period of time, it may be worth purchasing a pass ahead of time. Generally speaking, one pass will gain you access to other locations or benefits within the area. Indoor locations offer respite from the intense sun, and outdoor locations taut the unusual flora and fauna our sub-tropical paradise brings. Here are a few of our favorites. 

The Ringling Museum

Selby Botanical Gardens

Jungle Gardens

Fisherman’s Cove RV Resort is located at the south end of the Skyway Bridge with access to the major highways just minutes away. Zoom north, south, or inland for any adventure knowing you have a peaceful place of respite on the water for the moments in between. 

We look forward to seeing you and yours and hearing about the fun you have in store when summer ends!
