It’s finally Memorial Day weekend! It’s time for you to take a break from the hectic work week and have a relaxing three-day vacation. There’s no better way to relax in Florida than at one of our top beaches. Orlando has plenty of beaches to hit up this weekend, but which are the best? The team at our Orlando Toyota dealership has put in their votes for the best beaches to go to this Memorial Day weekend. Check out which ones made the cut below!
Beach #1: Siesta Beach
This is the perfect beach for a relaxing getaway! It’ll take you around three hours to travel there from Orlando, but will be well worth it. The powder white sand and peaceful shores make this beach one of our favorites to visit. If you’re getting a little too much sun, take a stroll in the little village filled with small mom and pop shops. The atmosphere is what makes this our top pick for your Memorial Day weekend!
Beach #2: Clearwater Beach
Clearwater beach is located on the Gulf of Mexico about two hours away from Orlando. Enjoy your weekend dozing away under the umbrella or building the biggest sand castle with your family on the shoreline of this beautiful beach. The kids will also love to visit the Clearwater Marine Aquarium and learn what lives beneath the water they enjoy playing in!
Beach #3: Sanibel Island
If you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of Orlando, Sanibel Island is the perfect place to spend your Memorial Day weekend. Sanibel is just off the west coast of Florida and is renowned for its beautiful shell-lined shores. This Florida beach is known for its tranquility and warm waters so if you want to relax, plan a trip to Sanibel Island.
Beach #4: St. Augustine Beach
St. Augustine is on the east coast of Florida and only a short drive from Orlando. This little city is filled with history and attractions other than the stunning beach, so there’s plenty to do once the sun goes down. Visit the infamous St. Augustine Fort built from coquina found right on the beach and if you’re feeling a little spooky there are multiple ghost tours around town that are sure to give you a fright! If you want your Memorial Day weekend to be relaxing and educational, St. Augustine is the perfect place to travel.
Beach #5: Key West
Since you’ll have an extra day this weekend to relax, Key West is a great beach to travel to! You’ll find a ton of things to do on this world-famous Florida key. Take a snorkeling excursion to check out the sea life up close and personal or visit famous author Ernest Hemingway’s house after you finish reading one of his novels on the shore.
Get out of Orlando for some fun in the sun this Memorial Day weekend! But before you hit the road, make sure your car is road trip-ready at our Orlando Toyota Service Center. As always drive safe and have a great time celebrating Memorial Day!
