Florida Family Beach Vacation

Growing up in Florida, I've enjoyed family beach vacations my entire life!

Here's a picture of me hitting the sun and surf at a very early age!

Check out the links on the left side of this page. There are all kinds of beaches listed and even information on the best beaches and beach camping!

Planning your trip

There are several things to consider when planning a trip:

  1. Budget - what can you afford? I find that what I can afford fluctuates with my level of motivation. Plan far enough in advance and your options increase. You have a lot more time to save money and look for the best deals!
  2. Travel - how far do you want to travel? There are great beaches everywhere in the Sunshine State! If you're driving and don't plan on going all the way to Central Florida to hit the theme parks - why not hit the beaches around Jacksonville or the Panhandle? The water and air temperature are a little warmer the further south you go. But if it's the summer - who cares? The younger your children are the squirmier they get on long drives.
  3. Activities - do you want a relaxing secluded vacation experience or something with a little action? The older kids get, the better it is to be close to restaurants, shops and entertainment. Believe me when I tell you that seeing a movie on a 90 degree humid day can be a great vacation experience. Especially when you're sunburned and water logged!
  4. Accommodations - some people like to camp, some people like to be pampered. And, we all like a little of both worlds sometimes! You can find "upscale" and "price conscious" accommodations in most areas of Florida. We truly know how to cater to tourists!
The most important thing though, is spending time with the ones you love!

This is a picture of me with my daughter when she was little. She didn't care what beach we went to or what kind of hotel we stayed at - she just wanted to spend time with us!

So don't worry about finding the "perfect" place for your Florida Family Beach Vacation! Just make sure that you understand that your children spell the word love T-I-M-E...

One final picture. This is from a holiday weekend on the east coast near Cocoa Beach. You can tell that we're not near any "high dollar" accommodations, but we're having a great time! Our cars are near (so we didn't have to carry our stuff very far), the sun is shining and we're spending time together with family!
