Breakfast at Clear Sky Draught Haus (9am)
Pack your bags with some water bottles / beverages of choice, as you’ll might work up a little sweat today and will need to cool down.
Tuck into some yummy breakfast over at Clear Sky Draught Haus (or just Haus for short). They have a huge selection for the whole family. Go for their scrumptious square meal – which is anything but square (two eggs, two pancakes/French toast, one sausage, one bacon, haus potatoes/grits and toast) – choose between a long list of bennies and Mexican breakfast fare, or opt for some crepe-action.
After a full belly, head over to Kafe Racer, where you will rent bikes for the day and ride the Pinellas Trail.
Pick up bikes at Kafe Racer (10:15 am)
After renting your bikes, you will head north on the Pinellas Trail to the picturesque Hammock Park, which is located just off the trail. There are several types of well-maintained biking and walking trails to explore in Hammock Park. They are all well-mapped, clearly making out restrooms and picnic tables, along with playgrounds for kids and space for doggos to run.
At the entrance you will first be met by a historic church which is worth to explore. On the trails you can expect to see Tortoise nests, egrets, rabbits and squirrels, but the main attraction in Hammock Park is the pretty Butterfly Garden.
After exploring Hammock Park, you will be hungry for some waterside eats. Get back on the trail and continue north to Ozona Blue Restaurant.
Lunch at Ozona Blue (1pm)
Ozona Blue is an awesome lunch spot with a big selection ranging from sandwiches, to pastas, flat breads, soups, fresh seafood and cuts from the grill. Plus, there’s some great veggie options, too. For dessert, treat yourself to some heavenly lava cake (just don’t overdo it, you still need to get back on your bike afterwards..!)
After lunch, hop back on your bike and head north again another 1.7 miles to de Bine Brewery. This will take your total trip to a total of 6 miles one way, if the kiddos are already tired, you may want to turn back after this stop.
Pit-stop at de Bine Brewery (2:30 PM)
The laid back de Bine offers an industrial style microbrewery and tasting room in the heart of Palm Harbor – and just off the Pinellas Trail – with lots to do for big kids as well as small. They conveniently enough have an arcade and Nintendo 64 setup, which will keep the little ones busy whilst you are busy perusing the great selection of craft beers, cider and wine on offer.
Stop at Pop Stansell Park (4:30 PM)
After the brewery, be sure to stop by Pop Stansell Park before heading back to the trail. (Pop Stansell Park is due West towards the water when exiting the brewery.) The park was founded to honor the local trucker-legend and Palm Harbor patriarch Pop Stansell, who put the city on the map.
Afterwards, head back to Kafe Racer to return your bike.
Dinner at Lucky Lobster (6pm)
Once you’ve returned your bike, stroll over to Lucky Lobster. Here you can expect the best of New England style dining – think freshly baked clams, succulent oysters, meaty crab cakes and their famous lobster roll. But there’s also a great selection of non-seafood as well, such as wings, meat and pizza. Top it all off with some fluffy, homemade coconut cream pie.
