    How about Delray, Florida, a low-key place between West Palm Beach and Ft. Lauderdale? Away.com's family-travel expert Steve Jermanok blogged about Delray recently at: http://blogs.away.com/family_guide/2008/06/vintage-florida.html. Amelia Island, northeast of Jacksonville, is also a very kid-friendly.

    I'd recommend Pompano Beach for a quieter scene than nearby Fort Lauderdale or Miami. Nice spot for families.

    Where can you go see manatees ?
    Anonymous user answered:
    Florida's manatees tend to head inland in the cooler months, when they seek out the warmer waters of inland waterways and springs like those at Crystal River National Wildlife Refuge, springs along the Suwannee River, and up and down the St. Johns River. They also like lingering near power plants, which discharge warm water year-round; some FL power plants have manatee observation programs. You can also spot manatees year-round at Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park, which has a handful of recuperating mammals. Note that there is some controversy about the effects of swimming with manatees, so best to observe them from a distance so you don't disturb these gentle creatures. Alistair (Away.com)

    All things being equal, it'll certainly feel warmer than Buffalo in late January! While temps may feel a little brisk on the odd day and in the evenings, you should be just fine laying out in the sun. Besides, my guess is that most hotels will have heated pools for those months when the sun doesn't heat the water up quite enough for swimming.
