My wife and I & my daughter have been to Florida for vacation during the last 4 summers. We typically do 2 days in the Orlando area and do 2 theme parks while there. We then typically drive the 1.5-hour drive to Treasure Island (between St. Pete / Clearwater) and stay about 4 days there.
If we go back to Florida this year, we're thinking of doing some different theme parks in the Orlando area that we haven't been to before for 2 days, but would like to go to a different beach area of Florida this time around just to see / do something new.
Any suggestions at all? We've never been further South in Florida than St. Pete Beach, so somewhere below there sounds interesting, and likely on the Gulf Side since I believe the water is typically warmer on that side?
Will have to be somewhere that has some things to do for an almost-6-year-old little girl... can't be just a pretty beach w/nothing else to see/do.
Thanks for any suggestions!
