Traveling all the way from New York for a beach vacation, during the winter time is always a great ideas. Leave 5 feet of snow and get on a flight to 5 feet of sand, next stop Sarasota/Bradenton. There is another reason why they flew from New York to Tampa. They used to live here and they wanted to take a trip down memory lane before their wedding in New York. Guess what, we all toke a trip down memory lane because my wife and I once lived in Sarasota. After a session like this, head to The John and Ringling Museum Of Art for an evening date.
