John's Pass, on the Gulf Coast of the Tampa Bay area, is a fascinating village full of shops, restaurants, ice cream shops, parasailing and charter sport fishing.  It is a bustling area on the intracoastal waterway just a few miles south of Clearwater Beach with lots of family oriented activities.  Find a parking spot, then walk around.  Watch hand rolled cigars being made, then, if you smoke 'em, try one for a wonderful cigar smoking expeience.

As you walk along the boardwalk, get a hand packed ice cream cone or frozen custard, then watch the boats on the inlet coming and going, some jet skies, some charter sport fishing boats, some pleasure cruisers and some sailboats.  There are watercraft for everyone on the water at John's Pass.  And as you watch the boat traffic, be sure to keep your eyes peeled for dolphin sightings.  There are always dolphin swimming around the inlet and it is fun to watch as tourists see their first dolphin.

Try Gators restaurant for a good meal, a cold beverage, and during football season, be surrounded by Florida Gator fans every Saturday afternoon.  As you munch on a grouper sandwich in the evening, you just might see people on the dock dipping blue crabs from the water for a very fresh lunch the next day.  It is truly a Florida experience!
