Travel Tips for Indian Rocks Beach

Intracoastal Waterway

by Ewingjr98

The Intracoastal Waterway is a 3,000 mile recreational and shipping channel that runs along the coast from Maine to Texas. The waterway was authorized in 1919 and is maintained by the Army Corps of Engineers.

IRB Christmas Parade

by Ewingjr98

IRB has an annual Christmas Parade on the streets of the beachfront town. The parade takes place on a Sunday about three weeks before Christmas. It consists of probably 100 vehicles, scooters, golf carts, floats, and firetrucks. The parade seems to go up and down every significant street in IRB, and the locals along the route sit out in chairs, and even set out toilets to catch the candy, beads, and other odds and ends tossed by the parade people.

The parade is put on by local business people and representatives, as well as Santa Claus who shows up riding in an old fashioned firetruck.

Indian Rocks Beach Nature Preserve

by Ewingjr98

The Indian Rocks Beach Nature Preserve is a 13-acre park with a small section fronting the Intercoastal Waterway. The park is full of wetlands and is accessed via about a half mile of elevated boardwalks that cross mangrove swamps, open water, and some small upland patches. Parts of the boardwalk were funded by NOAA and the FDEP with money acquired from the $8 million settlement from the 1993 Tampa Bay oil spill.

During my visit, I went jogging on the boardwalk and there were a few freaks in the park. One guy had jumped over the boardwalk and was sitting in the swamp with his pants down around his ankles, either taking a dump or chumming for gators. When he saw me, he stood up, pants still down, and said, "hi!" I laughed and kept on running.

The park also has parking, restrooms, and a small outdoor amphitheater. The park is open until 10pm, despite the lack of lights on the boardwalk.

Beef O'Brady's - Largo and various other locations

by Ewingjr98

Beef O'Brady's has a goofy name, and it is a chain, but it isn't too bad. We tried the one on Largo attached to Publix grocery store, but there are at least ten franchise locations throughout the Tampa area. Because of its location it made for a logical place to stop when we wanted to watch a little football, get lunch, then buy our groceries.

We arrived around 4pm as the early games were ending and the late games just gettign started. I was a bit disappointed that the majority of their TVs are small, with maybe 20 or 25 inch screens, while their two "big screen TVs" were perhaps 35 inches at best. The place needs a significant upgrade it it wants to be a competitive sports bar. They do have NFL Sunday Ticket, but that's just the bare minimum for any respectable sports bar.

On the other hand, their burgers are very good, the staff friendly and engaging, and the customers energetic, if crazy. This makes for a comfortable environment, though not quite fun or exciting. For our lunch, we had a few Yuengling beers at a dirt cheap price of $1.85 each as well as a Pepsi, which was more expensive than beer at $2.10. We also had the O'Brady burger and the black and bleu burger, both $7.70 each with your choice of several varieties of fries.

Beef O'Brady's is a growing eastern US franchise with over 250 locations in 26 states. The franchise began in Brandon, Florida, just outside of Tampa, and well over half of the locations are i Florida.

Bonefish Grill - St Pete & Bel Aire Bluffs

by Ewingjr98

Bonefish Grill is a great, upscale seafood chain owned by the company that runs Outback Steakhouse, Carrabba's Italian Grill, and Roy's. Their food is fresh, never frozen, and very healthy.

We started with drinks, though I was a bit disappointed with their brief list of bottled beers. Then came the staple Italian-style bread with olive oil and herbs. For dinner I decided on the cedar plank-grilled Arctic charr; advertised as clean, buttery Charr, topped with fresh herb-crumb & chorizo, and wood-grilled and drizzled with a citrus beurre blanc sauce for $17.90. The food took much longer than expected, but the restaurant's apologizer came by to ask for our forgiveness. The fish was tender and very mildly flavored, but the Spanish chorizo sausage really added a different taste. We also shared key lime pie, which was not quite like the pie I had in Key West--way too sweet and bitter.

The first Bonefish opened in St Pete in the year 2000, and it has since expanded to over 100 locations in 29 states.
