The Destination
Nestled on the gorgeous South Shore of Tampa Bay, the town of Ruskin is awash in natural beauty. From its year-round fantastic boating and fishing options, to the shores of the Little Manatee River adorned with natural mangrove trees, it's no wonder that this Gulf Coast retreat is where locals come to soak up some Florida sun. While the city itself offers a variety of delicious dining options, nearby Sun City's palm-lined streets are packed with cozy spots, many dishing out fresh seafood.

The Digs
Perched on the waterfront at the mouth of Little Manatee River, Pirate's Pointe Resort is treasure chest of carefree relaxation and upscale amenities. Private bungalows in soft Caribbean inspired-colors offer a rustic-yet-modern ambiance with fully equipped kitchens, flat-screen TVs, and scenic private patios. In addition to an outdoor pool and a dock with boat slips, canoes are available for guests to rent. Take one for a spin in the mangroves of Cockroach Bay and cast your line for red fish and trout to grill for dinner.

The Diversions
Start the day reeling-in big beauties on a private fishing charter helmed a fishing guide from ESPN's Outdoor Fishing Adventures Radio Show. (Tip: Start tuning in to their Sunday-morning show on ESPN 1040 AM for pre-trip pointers.) Later, sink your feet into the sand at E.G. Simmons Park, just three miles north of Ruskin. Come November, visit the Manatee Viewing Center in Apollo Beach.
