Florida Beach Vacations

If you’re looking for a great beach destination to find white sandy beaches that are clean and soft, than most people agree that the beaches of Florida are very hard to beat.  There are so many great beaches in Florida to choose from that you just can’t go wrong.  The beaches on the Gulf of Mexico are unique in that the water is generally called and more, and the sand is soft and powdery.

On the opposite side of the state is the Atlantic Ocean and the beaches here have both hard and soft sand.  Say you have both to choose from and it is all according to your personal taste.  We stayed at a home in Central Florida that was undergoing construction, and we stayed there for a full of six months.

Foam InsulationOne thing that happened to this home while we’re there is that they sprayed foam insulation in the attic and it really helped the home stay cool during that hot summer.  The contractor was very nice and was very helpful and explain to us how the spray foam insulation in Orlando, FL would improve the home, and even improve our trip by saving us money.  I learn that technologies like this can really save you money when you are on vacation and renting a home.  We’re able to use the money that we saved and spend more time traveling to many of the great beaches in Florida.  We took a day trip to West Palm Beach and it was a splendid day that I will always remember.  We never did make it to the beach that day but still have a great time.

The home that we stayed in was extraordinary.  It was what you call a green home as it was very energy efficient.  The owner who rented the home to us said that it does not use any electricity from the power company, but rather generates all of its own electricity.  One thing that covered the entire roof of this home was solar panels, and I learned a lot about how solar panels work to provide electricity to a home.
