Here’s a list of our personal favorite destinations in and around Florida:
1. Key West (KEYW)
Take the family or bring a few friends to the most southern part of the country for the day. Enjoy the ocean breeze, peel and eat shrimp, and soak up the sun! We recommend renting scooters for the day, you’ll be able to see more of the island from a local’s perspective.
2. St. Petersburg (KSPG)
A Paragon favorite! From takeoff to landing you’ll arrive in less than 45 minutes. The restaurant on the field is a great spot to watch the sunset and to watch planes come and go. The best part about landing is that KSPG’s runway looks as if you’re landing on an aircraft carrier! Spend the evening walking through the city along Vinoy waterfront park or pop into some of the local restaurants for a bite to eat. St. Pete has a great atmosphere and makes for a fun quick getaway.
3. Venice Beach (KVNC)
Looking for the perfect beach view lunch spot? Better yet, looking for a place to fly to dinner for your next “treat yourself” night? Venice is the right location for you. ! This flight also spans a short 30-40 minutes, making it another enjoyable day trip. With its beachfront restaurants like Sharky’s On the Pier or Fins at Sharky’s, you’re sure to have the best view of the beach!
