We have sorted disney out for a week but have been searching for where to go in the second week on the gulf coast ,it has to be very child friendly on a nice beach with very child friendly pools . We would also like to be able to walk to restaurants ,entertainment in the evening ,can anybody help please ? so far we have looked at st petes and clearwater and just dont even know if we are looking in the right place !!
Captiva or Sanibel are very nice - I stayed there with DC post Disney when they were young. Lovely beaches and great restaurants. We rented a house (which had a lovely pool and private jetty), but there are beach condos/hotels with good facilities on both islands.
