Families with teenagers and children will not be disappointed in Palm Harbor, Florida. There’s plenty to see and do in this little town just down the road from Tampa and St. Petersburg on the Gulf of Mexico coast. While it’s predominantly a residential community, there is plenty to do and see nearby. Adults and children should both take the time to go on a Captain Memo’s Pirate Cruise. Check the schedule, as there are cruises intended for kids and adults, featuring anything from dancing to games to dolphin watching, all aboard an authentic looking Spanish galleon with crew decked out in full pirate regalia. Children will especially love the touch tanks at the Clearwater Marine Aquarium. And you can feel good knowing you are supporting the rehabilitation of injured marine wildlife. Relax and get away from it all on the sandy beaches of Honeymoon Island State Recreation Area.1 And Mom and Dad can have an evening out at Snapper’s Comedy Club. Take the whole gang to the Woodland Square 20 and catch one of Hollywood’s latest releases. Or take a chartered Gulf fishing trip with the boys with Gone Fishing Charters. Even beginners can join in the fun on the bayou with Simply Kayaking. And kids will thrill to see the antics of the chimps and other animals at the Suncoast Primate Sanctuary. Add it all up, and sprinkle in some of the Gulf Coast’s nicest beaches, and you have a recipe for many helpings of family fun, so come on down to Palm Harbor.

Memory disorders are traumatic for those who suffer from them, but they are also traumatic for those who take on the role of caregiver.
