Take This Summer Road Trip To Some Of The Most Jaw-Dropping Piers On Florida’s Gulf Coast

The beauty of living in a peninsula state is that you have access to water in almost every direction you turn. What’s more, is that because of the Gulf and coastal access, there tend to be more ways to enjoy that water – with jaw-dropping piers! Throughout The Sunshine State, there are roughly 35 different piers stretching out into the ocean or the Gulf, providing endless views of the rolling tide and the perfect platform to fish. We’ve compiled a list of the most stunning piers in Florida along the gulf side and turned it into one epic road trip. Whether you want to spend the trip casting a line from every pier and seeing what you can catch, or simply enjoying sunsets and surf, this road trip is sure to be a delight.

The entire trip takes just under 7 hours in driving time, but when you factor in stoppages and even an overnight stay, you might want to turn this into a fun weekend trek. You can find the entire road trip itinerary by clicking here.
