Advice on holiday in march 2013


We're considering a 2 week holiday from march23rd with our 2 kids age 3 and 5. We would be flying into Miami and spending the first 5-7 days around the area and driving down to the keys. Our plan would then be a week on a beach on the gulf coast.

I've been looking at accommodations but I'm surprised at how expensive everything is especially condo's for our week at the beach. Is the end of march still peak season? Do you think it's possible to get clean, child friendly accommodation for approx$150-200 a night? Would love any suggestions on where to stay especially in Miami and on the gulf coast. We are low key folk who are looking for beautiful beaches, lots of nature for the kids and pretty quiet!( on the gulf coast!)

Not sure if it's the wrong time of year to go. Also want to make sure it's not spring break!

March is still peak season for most places. Usually the prices will come down in April/May.

St. Pete Beach, up to Clearwater Beach, is in general, an affordable area when compared to some other FL beaches. On Clearwater Beach, you could check out the Travelodge, or Magnuson hotel. These are in great locations, walk to everything. No-frills places but may be in your price range.

Thanks for your prompt reply. We're probably keen to be a bit further south as we don't want too long a drive with the kids. Plus I've been to St Petersburg before and hop g to go somewhere different. Will keep your suggestions in mind though:) thanks.
