I have lived in FL the past 10 yrs and have never been! LOL. Work, school, kids...just no time. I have been to Daytona, Ft Lauderdale, Miami, Tampa, Orlando, Sebastian, St Augustine, Jacksonville, and of course Orange Park, which is where I live. If you go, let me know if you like it! :-) Right now dealing with subtropical storm, Beryl, and hoping my trees make it through alright. I knew I should've had the one cut down...it got ravaged by carpenter ants. :-(

Oh man, I hope you got through the storm without damage. Sounds like you have gone to lots of places in Florida! Overall, I am taking a group of ten to Florida next April an want a great spot. My son would LOVE to find shark teeth, so we definetly want to spend some time there.  Would really like to be on the beach...any suggestions????  :)

Are there places to stay right on the beach? I have been researching and am having a difficult time telling the distance stores are . Any insight would be great!! Thanks!

 I can't believe it but I get to say yes to this!!  we went just last summer in July.  we started out at sarasota which was beautiful, but so crowded!  so we went down to Venice which is completley different.  the sand is different, the color the texture.  I didn't think the surf was bad at all, we were there for hours playing swimming and looking for shells.  and the best part, it was hardly crowded.  Now as far as a place on the beach if I recall there were a few but can't tell you names.  That is the one place hubby, the kids, and I want to go back to if we ever get the chance.  We Loved It!!!

I have been there, a long time ago, and it was just okay.  Siesta Key, a little to the north, is beautiful and has lots of sand dollars.  For shells, there's nothing better than Sanibel, further south.  Have a great trip!
