Sanibel v Stump Pass

Last spring we discovered the beach at Stump Pass State Park on Manasota Key. As part of our 14 in 14, we took a Spring Break trip exploring new places along Florida’s Southwest coast, and we fell in love with one of those places, Stump Pass State Park.

In fact, we decided to return in the summer for a short beach trip. A time that’s traditionally spent on our favorite beach, Sanibel, and much to our surprise we found many things about Stump Pass that we liked better than Sanibel. This lead us to evaluate the two beaches.

Maybe the best lesson to learn is not to get in a rut. Enjoy a favorite place, but not to the exclusion of trying something new.

We’ll just need to spend more time on the beach so we can go to Sanibel and Stump Pass.
