The Palms Retro Hotel and Hitty at the Beach

I love the beach! I recently visited St Augustine Beach and Atlantic Beach on the North Atlantic side of Florida.  It took almost six hours of driving to get there from Ft Myers---but what a fun trip!  (More about St Augustine later)

I was up early but the fishermen were already there.  Shortly after I arrived, one of them caught the first fish of the day.  It was a catfish.

Such a beautiful Sunrise!

On the second night of my trip, I stayed at the Palms Retro Hotel on Atlantic Beach.  The Palms Retro is a newly renovated 50's era hotel with themed rooms and a beautifully landscaped courtyard.

The hotel is just a short walk from the beach and the Atlantic Beach Town Center where you will find brick streets lined with palm trees and old-fashioned street lights.  The unique boutique shops and restaurants have something for every budget.  Since we had eaten a big lunch, we had barbecue chicken on a stick at a cost of $1.50!

The wide beach, the white sand and the crashing waves make Atlantic Beach one of my favorite Florida Beaches.

The Dudes Room has a comfortable queen size bed

Modern conveniences such as high speed WiFi, large flat screen TV, and remote controlled Hunter fan, are an added bonus to the delightful Dudes Room. 

This is a 50's era hotel, however.  The bathroom is not large and has only a shower and no vanity.  A corner shelf is available for your toiletries and the linens are very nice---extra-large, soft bath towels.  The hotel has no pool---but it's just a short walk to the beach

One of my favorite rooms is The Times Room where a continental breakfast is available from 7 a.m.until check-out time.  I think you will agree that this room is too cool!

The Palms Retro is a reasonably priced and fun place to stay. I would rate it 5 Stars for atmosphere, cleanliness and service.  For more information go to http://www.palmsretro.com/

For beautiful beaches, I recommend the beaches of  Jacksonville and St Augustine.
