Beach and Brewery Series!

Published on 03/22/21: It’s time to announce two new LovingStPete series: #LovingStPeteBeachTowns and #LovingStPeteBreweries!

Beach Towns

Mixed in with our regular posts about nearby activities, we’ll explore the 10+ beach towns within 15-45 minutes of downtown! We’ll make our way up the 25+ miles of sandy beaches from Pass-a-Grille to Clearwater Beach, dedicated to ‘toes in the sand’ living. Suggesting beachfront activities, restaurants, bars and more. Getting the conversation started. 🙂 For those in ie Dunedin, Tarpon Springs, and Palm Harbor you’ll be in our #LSPWaterfront series which we’ll kick off a bit later.


Why now for a brewery series? They’re on our mind. We just returned from Asheville and found that nature and unique breweries captivated our group’s attention nearly as much as the Biltmore. 🤷🏼‍♂️ While the Tampa Bay area is very well known for craft breweries, Asheville is ranked in the top 3 nationally. They’re everywhere, with practically every nearby mountain town having at least a couple….so they became our ‘starting point’ as tourists.

[From the back seat] “Put Oklawaha Brewery into the GPS, let’s explore Hendersonville”. Don’t get the wrong idea, many of these fine establishments serve food and non-alcoholic beverages as well. Our life isn’t Animal House, but we needed a landmark to get started in each city. I should add, with four adults and 3 kids, the vote was a bit rigged in the adults favor. 😉 Here are a few pics from our week away, giving you an idea of the crew who will lead you through these series. We’ll leave Colt at home when appropriate. Thanks for following along with our Beach and Brewery Series!

You’ll receive up to $10K at closing when you use my LovingStPete Team to buy or sell a property! I’m a St Petersburg Realtor, with over 25K people following my LovingStPete Guide on social media! My past includes developing a vacation rental advertising business that I ran for more than a decade, then sold to HomeAway/VRBO. I’d love to help you buy or sell a property, simply contact me.

Written by : St Petersburg Realtor, Mike Braswell

Mike Braswell is a Tampa Bay Realtor, serving St Petersburg, Clearwater, all nearby beaches and more. Mike started LovingStPete in October of 2020 after a difficult year took its toll on local businesses. After being cooped up for portions of 2020 (lockdown) Mike and his son decided to get out and explore, helping spread the good word about the local area he loves so much. Often even doing gift card giveaways to support local. LovingStPete is now followed by over 48 thousand people on social media! The majority of posts are informative on fun parks, activities, day trips, great restaurants, and in general provide a comprehensive tour of the area!

Soon after receiving his bachelors in Management Information Systems, Mike developed and then operated a vacation rental advertising business for 10+ years as CEO/Owner. The business was eventually acquired by VRBO. Mike has earned the trust of many large clients over the years. Such as NFL, Wynn Resorts, Blue Cross Blue Shield, VISA, Genuine Parts Company (NAPA Auto Parts), AT&T, and other Fortune 500 companies.

When not spending time with his beautiful wife and energetic son, Mike enjoys boating and is also an avid tennis player. An interesting fact about Mike is that he grew up on an avocado farm with over 15 varieties, some of which you can find in our local Publix/Winn Dixie as his dad still farms the same farm at 87 years old!
