Beach Lovers Destinations: Madeira Beach, FL

Madeira Beach is a small waterfront community on the Gulf of Mexico located between Clearwater and St. Pete Beach. The calm and warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico make this a wonderful vacation spot, and there are nearby attractions to keep you busy when you aren’t catching rays and playing in the ocean. Locally known as Mad Beach, it is only two miles long and conveniently located close to Tampa Airport and a short drive to Orlando. This low-key getaway attracts beach lovers to its clean, white-sandy shores and calm emerald-turquoise waters, and is a must-visit if you love fresh seafood.

What to Expect During An East African Safari

We’ve all seen the Lion King, but how many of us have lived it? Seeing the rarest of animals roaming about in their natural surroundings, pretty impressive – right? East Africa is home to two of Africa’s most popular safari destinations – Kenya and Tanzania, plus a gorilla sanctuary in Uganda. If you get the chance to visit the Masai Mara in Kenya or Serengeti in Tanzania, both parks offer great viewings at any time of year because of the plethora of wildlife. That said, it is recommended to go during the dry seasons for the easiest animal sightings, as they will migrate to the watering holes.
