Hi All! Time to start planning the spring vacation. Hubby & I are looking to rent a condo or house, on the beach, for a week. We have never been to Longboat Key or Anna Maria. We have been to Sanibel Island & Siesta Key. We are looking for somewhere that has restaurants/bars on the beach/water, within walking distance. Not terribly quiet, but not crazy like Key West. Also would like shopping close by. Would either of these two places suit us & how do they compare with Sanibel or Siesta Key? We have been up & down south east & west Florida & are looking for somewhere new to stay. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
