Florida in February or March

My wife & I are planning a quick 4 day trip to Florida in Feb. or March. Golf for me; beach for her. We want to be certain of warm temps (at least mid 70's). Any suggestions?

The further south you go the better the weather, I would suggest the Naples or Marco Island area. The Marriott Resort on Marco has a wonderful beach and a great golf course.

Went to Florida mid March to Orlando and Clearwater Beach and had weather in 70s. Remember its spring break at that time of year and it can be busy.

I live in Naples. Our weather then would be wonderful and we have wonderful golf courses. That is also peak season so the prices will be a bit high but you will have to come pretty far south to be guaranteed of nice weather and a tan. The beaches here are just beautiful. If you think you might be interested in Naples I would be happy to give you any info you might need (if I can). Let me know via email.

John-Spring Break starts the middle of March and runs roughly to Easter in April. The college kids tend to congregate in Panama City, Clearwater, Daytona, Key West, families with school age kids are also on break and they tend to head to Sanibel/Ft. Myers in that time frame.

I would suggest going in Feb., or the first week of March. The Naples area is your best bet for weather. I have been in Clearwater that time of year and it can get cool. Ft. Lauderdale is also another great place, but IMO, does not have nearly as many great golf courses as the Naples area.

For warm weather, you definetly need to be south. I would either go to Naples, Marco Island or Sanibel Island. The Marriott on Marco has one of the nicest beaches in the area.
