Suggestions on location for family Florida beach vacation for Spring Break

Jump to last reply

Hello All...I'm looking for any suggestions on a location for my family's next spring break vacation. A little background...we'll be traveling with my family of 4, dh and I and our son (9) and daughter (6). We enjoy a beautiful beach and pool but also need other things to do as well...being close enough to do a day trip to Sea World, Disney, or Busch Gardens would be nice but not a requirement. We'd also be interested in visiting an aquarium, zoo, museum, etc...basically something fun and intereting to do with the kids to break up one beach day after another. Looking for restaurants, some shopping for momma, maybe a place to rent bikes, ice cream shops, etc...but nothing wild and over run with high school/college spring breakers.
We go to Florida every year and always end up doing a week at Disney. We do love it...we love that we can relax by the pool all day and then have plenty to do in the late afternoon/evening. I guess I'm trying to find another spot in Florida for us that provides for relaxation but also offers activities for the family outside of beach and pool. We'd be interested in staying at a resort or possibly renting a condo. Budget is flexible. My first priority is a having a great trip...I'll be turning 40 this year so treating myself to a special trip with my family will be OK! Thanks for any ideas for planning this vacation!
