HomeEscape Vacation Rentals Announces the Top Gulf Coast Vacation Destinations

HomeEscape, the fastest growing vacation rental website, lists the top vacation destinations in the Gulf Coast.

Florida Gulf Coast Vacation Rentals

Florida’s Gulf Coast stretches along the entirety of the western part of Florida, from the panhandle in the north to the Florida Keys in the south.

The Gulf Coast is one of the most beautiful coastline stretches in the world. Known as Florida’s quieter coast, the Gulf Coast is perfect for families and travelers looking for a more relaxed vacation. The Panhandle is also home to the beautiful, clear green water, and extremely fine, soft sand. HomeEscape offers a unique selection of Florida vacation rentals along the Gulf Coast.

We are seeing an uptick in travelers seeking out the Gulf Coast. People love the warm, relaxed environment of Florida's Gulf.

"We are seeing an uptick in travelers seeking out the Gulf Coast,” remarked Avi Vaknin, CEO of HomeEscape. “People love the warm, relaxed environment of Florida’s Gulf."

Aside from the spectacular sugar-white sand beaches, emerald-green waters, and abundance of multi-generational attractions, there is something for everyone on the Gulf Coast of Florida.

The Gulf Coast has distinct regions, like Naples and Fort Myers, Tampa Bay, Sarasota, Panama City Beach, Destin, and more. However, the activities and amenities of the Gulf Coast are all very similar – whether it’s a relaxing day at one of the many beaches, shopping in all the great local businesses or dining on fresh Gulf seafood at great local restaurants – most travelers fall in love with the Gulf Coast and return year after year.

Fort Myers

Fort Myers has a storied history; two American inventor legends called Fort Myers home: Thomas Edison and Henry Ford. Edison was the first to migrate down to Fort Myers and build a beautiful winter estate there, and soon Ford built a house next door to vacation with Edison. Moreover, Fort Myers is a family-friendly destination known for its vacation rentals that cater to budgets, with the addition of nearby beaches. Find affordable Fort Myers vacation rentals on HomeEscape, including beach houses, oceanfront condos, and family vacation homes. 

Sanibel and Captiva Islands

Both Sanibel and Captiva Island are great destinations for sun worshippers. For those looking to experience Florida’s unique wildlife – take a detour through the J.N. “Ding” Darling National Wildlife Refuge. This massive wildlife preserve is packed with some of the most unique flora and fauna in the United States. Everything from a bald eagle to a toothed alligator could cross your path (literally) at this national treasure. If you want a more water-focused way of seeing this seaside preserve, try a canoe or kayak tour through the refuge with Tarpon Bay Explorers.

Naples is the best place for an upscale Florida getaway. Families should start with the Children’s Museum of Naples, one of the top in the Southeast United States. For art lovers, check out the Philharmonic Center for the Arts. There is also golf, fishing, and shopping in abundance. Naples, Florida is a well-balanced vacation destination with activities for everyone and an abundance of Naples vacation rentals.

The Florida Panhandle

The Western coast of Florida is a popular beach destination in itself – and is less crowded than the beaches of Southern Florida. No matter where you travel to, Florida’s Gulf Coast has something for everyone. Start with booking a Panama City Beach condo rental or a Destin vacation home rental.
