Florida’s East Coast: 5 Must Try Restaurants With a View by JD Andrews

One afternoon I wanted to take my daughter out to lunch. I was looking for somewhere fun on the water. After some searching, I couldn't find a good list of waterfront dining, so I decided to start one myself.

I was very excited to work with @VISITFLORIDA  on this and to search for some great waterfront dining on Florida's East Coast.

I first made my way up North to start in Melbourne Florida and ended my search in Palm Beach County. I hope you're hungry and ready for some nice waterfront views.
