The weather here is pretty good throughout the year and the water is warm for swimming in the summer and the sloping beaches makes it easy for the kids to run into the waves. There are tons of lifeguards and opportunities for family friendly fun such as boogie boarding, beach volleyball or catch a glance of the Navy Seals training.

    I love to smoke cigars while on the beach, so I guess I will have to pass Siesta Key up. Too bad. I would like to see what other rules, restrictions they have
