Please note.. The Conch Republic Independence Celebration takes place in Key West Apr 16-25. This is one of the biggest partying times in Key West and it gets really crazy! Prices for lodging also goes up during this time.

Instead, check out the Marathon area. It is located in the middle Keys, less than an hours drive north of Key West. Lodging is cheaper and town is more family oriented. Check the web for a vast selection of rental homes and condos near Key Colony Beach, Sombrero Beach (fantastic public beach) and Coco Plum Beach. The most beautiful beach in the Keys is at Bahia Honda State Park, just minutes from Marathon and a fantastic inexpensive day trip for kids

While in Marathon, a must see for kids is The Turtle Hospital. There's also a swim with the dolpins nearby. A great place for a free time is an old portion of the Seven Mile bridge that's open for pedestrians, bicycles and pier fishing. The views are gorgeous, and there's lots of marine life to view.

Not sure of your budget, but I wouldn't go as far south as Key West (which is a long drive south of Miami, especially with young kids). I've taken my family two years running to Amelia Island in northeast Florida. More specifically, Amelia Island Plantation Resort, which offers well-appointed condos close to the beach. Beautiful beach, lots of pools, hiking and biking trails, tennis, golf... Hit the local grocery store and cook meals in your condo to save on overpriced restaurant food. Otherwise, this place is perfect!
