Hi. :) My husband, 3 year old and I are planning a trip down to Fort Lauderdale this June. We usually make the 12 hour drive from Charlotte in one day, the way down and back. This year I am thinking about doing something different since that drive takes a lot out of us - especially the little one. I was wanting to find a place to stay along the coast about half way, or even a little more than half way. We would stay Saturday night, South FL Sunday through Thursday night, then stay again somewhere coming home for a night. I just didn't want to stop on the side of the highway in one of those hotels - hoped to find a beach town where that would also be part of the vacation. Somewhere new to explore for a day or so. I was looking at New Smyrna, St Augustine...any suggestions or ideas?? Thanks!
