Places to stay - State Campgrounds

State campgrounds are by far one of our favorite places to stay and our go to spots. Not only are they usually well maintained with nice facilities but you help support local wildlife and wild areas by paying your park entrance and or camping fee!  We always check State park websites first! Here's a list of all our favorites that we have personally stayed at!

The Dyrt

We randomly encountered this website and it's great! Find reviews of campgrounds nearby and the map version works great to compare to your location and how far you need to go. Try it here!

Airbnb

You've probably heard of Airbnb, but if you haven't you must try it! Take your vacation to the next level by living like a local in a local's house with all the amenities of home. Much better and more private than a hotel, plus you usually have a kitchen to make your own meals which is a huge savings! Another bonus? You can rent homes with bedrooms so that if you have kids or friends accommodating you, you can each have the privacy of your own room while saving renting a home rather than a few rooms at a hotel. Be sure to always read reviews but this is by far better than a hotel! Try it here!

Vrbo

VRBO stands for Vacation Rental by Owner. This is also another site like airbnb where you can rent great vacation homes directly from the owner most times. Again, be sure to always read reviews and also take all reviews with a grain of salt. Not everyone will always be happy so always go with your gut! try it here!

Bimini, Bahamas

Can't beat the beauty of the Bahamas! Bimini is usually the first stop for most boats traveling to the Bahamas. 

Best things in Bimini:

 Bimini Blue water Marina is a great place to check in to the country and get your bearings set for the rest of the  Bahamas. They even allow dogs!

Be sure to check out the dolphin house, scour the beach for sea glass, and visit Big mike at his stand for some Bahamas style Conch salad. Its Yummy! Plenty of great snorkeling in the area, the town of Bimini is welcoming with it's small town atmosphere.

The Berry Islands

The Berry Islands Bahamas is another great stop in your Bahamas loop. Stop into Great Harbor Cay for some supplies and then onto Soldiers Cay, Hoffman's Cay, and the beautiful secluded Berry islands. Don't forget to check out Hoffmans Blue Hole! It's amazing!

The Exuma Islands Bahamas

The Exumas are pure beauty. From the beautiful turquoise water to the absence of most people and cities as you know it, the Exuma Islands boast beauty beyond what you can imagine.

Stop into Alaan's cay to visit the large Iguanas, Staniel cay to visit the famous swimming pigs and sunken planes, as well as Normans cay for snorkeling the sunken Planes. 

Georgetown is a cruisers delight with many amenities geared towards cruisers as well as a cruisers net every morning on Channel 72! Be sure to park and hike around the monument, Honeymoon beach for private beach time as well as stop in at chat and chill for some grub and rum.

Island Boy has great food right next to the market!

A great secluded place to anchor if you'd like to get away from the masses. Not many cruisers venture farther than Georgetown Harbor but for those that are into adventure, be sure not to miss this Island!

Matthewtown, Great Inagua, Bahamas

Another secluded out island of the Bahamas, this quiet little town doesn't have much but it is quiet and peaceful.
