There's nothing like a day at the beach! This was my first trip to Siesta Key Beach in Florida and it was great! The sand was cool and the waves were as still as a bathtub. Not so good for catching a wave but perfect for a family. When we visit the beaches in the Carolinas, we're always worried one of our kids is going to get caught in the rip but you could probably walk out 100 yards into the water at Siesta Key and the water would still be calm and shallow.
