Trying to plan a trip to Florida for early November. Had my mind set on going to Sanibel Island just to "chill" out, but my husband/son said "too boring". Thought about the upper Keys, but prefer calmer Gulf of Mexico to wavy Atlantic Ocean. My new idea is to fly into Tampa and spend one day at Busch Gardens then drive to the Gulf coast. Looking for a beach town that has more to offer than beaches (i.e., miniature golf, go-karts, etc.) and am willing to drive up to 2 hours. Where do you suggest? I've been to St. Petersburg & Clearwater, but MANY years ago when I was younger and single, so my priorites were different then.
