Welcome to Your Dream Vacation

Nestled between the Gulf of Mexico and Lemon Bay, the WannaB offers the best of the open ocean, the Intracoastal waterway, and the quiet calm of the flats. This is where nature comes alive. Don't forget your fishing pole, and feel free to dock your boat - if you decide to bring with you - if you don't, no worries... there is an abundance of boat rentals and fishing charter captains that will be happy to be a part of your dream vacation. Then again, if lounging on the beach is your preference, get ready to experience one of the most beautiful stretches of beach in the world. The kids will love the treasures that they will find along the shore. This is a place where fossilized sharks' teeth and mastodon bones can be found next to sand dollars and the occasional conch.
