"Older chidren who enjoy..." Florida Things to Do Tip by Ky_Happy_Dad

Florida Things to Do: 565 reviews and 970 photos


Older chidren who enjoy playing in the surf would probably enjoy the beaches on the east coast. As expected, the waves are larger and the water a bit cooler than the protected gulf coast. However, the water is much warmer than swimming further north or in California. Unless you enjoy loud music and watching teenagers drink to excess, avoid the popular Spring Break beaches such as Daytona Beach. I have seen them in the weeks near Easter as a college student and would avoid them at that time of year as an adult, especially if vacationing with young children.
