Treasure Island - October 2005 - what to do/see/eat in 1...

I will be travelling to Treasure Island in October with 3 kids..6 -4 and 4. I haven't been back in 25 years!!! I guess a lot has changed.

I remember John's pass....but what about the beach? would the kids have more fun at clearwater or fort desoto in terms of play stuff, sand, water depth???

Can I take them to bilmar to eat, etc...Is golf-gulf still there?

How do I get there from Tampa international airport?

If you don't mind going inland for a buffet. The one at Seminole Hardrock on Friday night is incredible. Live jazz singer, excellent food, unbelievable variety....fairly reasonable considering the atmosphere and quality. If you go, join their free Players Clun for 5 dollars off each dinner regularly $24 (includes beverages and dessert).

Friendly Fisherman at John's Pass (between Madeira and TI) is nice with kids. Casual. can see the water while you eat and the boardwalk is nice for a walk or shopping.

Forgot to add, when we go to Caddy's , our kids bring their beach toys and skim boards. You can also "borrow" volleyballs from Caddy's. The kids love playing volleyball!

Thanks for all the tips...glad to hear I don't have to go to clearwater to enjoy a seafood buffet.

I read in another forum that the dolphin watch at John's pass was slightly "overrated".....true??? waste of $$$$???

Go to John's Pass, eat at Sully's, it's the restuarant on the lower level. Also try Gators, on the other side of John's Pass, great Cuban sandwiches. Enjoy your trip.
