Sunset Bay Marina and Anchorage
Add it to the list! Sunset Bay Marina and Anchorage is another tropical paradise we will be craving when it starts snowing.

There is also Championship Golf tournaments held in close proximity and great Cultural Events throughout the year.
Marriott Tampa Water Street Marina
We know we said it’s nice to avoid the busy tourist attractions in Florida, but Tampa may be the exception! Marriott Tampa Water Street marina has 39 full-service slips located in the heart of downtown Tampa. With the Marriott right off the docks, guests are just steps away from a beautiful rooftop pool, state-of-the-art fitness center, and much more! The marina is adjacent to the Tampa Convention Center, which hosts a variety of really fun events all year round. The Tampa Riverwalk, Florida Aquarium, Amalie Arena and the Sparkman Wharf, and much more are within walking distance. We’re particularly excited about seeing the Florida Aquarium, which gets guests up close and personal with sea turtles and Florida coral species. Just what the doctor ordered! You’ll never run out of things to do and explore in Tampa.
Dandy Haven Marina
We can’t leave Virginia out of our favorite Southern destinations, and Hampton is a must see and must add to the 2020 itinerary. Of course, we have to mention this marina is family owned and loved. The team are amazing and dedicated to making your stay as enjoyable as possible. There is a full-service boat repair onsite with Master technicians ready to give your vessel the RnR it deserves. The 12 acres of land are truly a site, especially in the Spring and Summer when everything is green and lush. The marina is part of the Virginia Clean Marina Program
and works to prevent pollution that comes off boatyards and recreation vessels. While you’re headed South, make sure to stop at one of Chesapeake Bay Magazine’s Best Marinas of the Bay in 2018!

Boynton Beach, Florida is just north of Fort Lauderdale, so whether you’re stopping on your way South to the bigger city, or in to stay a while, Marina Village has something for everyone. Located right off the coast, it is the perfect destination for fishing charters and drift fishing. You can rent boats from the marina to take out and fish, or jet-skis for the family to head out on the water to enjoy.

Boynton Beach is the life of the party, and once you’re tied up, you’ll be just steps away from local parks, beaches, shops, restaurants, and so much more! We know it sounds busy, but don’t worry-Marina Village will be a memorable vacation for a recharge and some much deserved RnR.
