Exploring John’s Pass Village & Boardwalk

Exploring John’s Pass Village & Boardwalk

Even though I’m a Florida native, there are still so many parts of this state I’ve never explored, especially on the west coast. So last weekend I was so excited about spending a couple days in Madeira Beach, a coastal town east of St. Petersburg.

We were there for a couple days watching my sister’s softball tournament, but we had a full day of exploring on Sunday. When I looked up fun places to visit in the area, John’s Pass Village & Boardwalk came up and it was definitely worth the trip!

I took my fiancé Jared there for the first time and we spent the day walking on the boardwalk, exploring the Margaritaville Beach Resort and hanging out one of their restaurants to watch football.

But ever since I started training at Mat Life Training Center my gym bag has become an essential every morning.
