This abandoned resort along Florida's Gulf Coast has quite a story. It was once a huge resort known throughout the world as the place to be on Florida's Gulf Coast. It attracted tennis stars and even presidents (President Bush stayed here on Sept. 10th 2001) After years of being closed down, it's only inhabitants are rodents and has been caught up in a decade of litigation and disagreement. Do not attempt to visit this location as it is not only illegal, but is unsafe.
The town of Longboat Key is preparing to tear down the Colony Beach & Tennis Resort after a state judge ruled against condo owners there who tried to stop it.
