MADEIRA BEACH –– If you have friends visiting from the north and you’ve taken them all around Highlands County, consider a trip to John’s Pass Village and Boardwalk, located along the beaches near St. Petersburg. You’ll treat them to shop after shop and a lunch stop at seafood lovers’ restaurants overlooking the Gulf of Mexico.

Your friends will be awed with a ride over the Sunshine Skyway Bridge, and a view of the “Pink Palace, “ the Don CeSar hotel on Gulf Boulevard, built at the height of the Gatsby Era in 1928.
