    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.

    If your children are very young, I would forego the Disney/Orlando thing and head to the beach. My family fave is Amelia Island Plantation Resort near Jacksonville. Sanibel and Captiva islands are both great spots with huge white-sand beaches with gentle surf ideal for non-swimmers. Other resort areas along the west side of Florida will be nice, too, places like Naples and St. Pete/Clearwater. I'd skip the Keys with young kids as there's more driving involved. Not sure where you're flying from, but loads of cheap flights to Jacksonville, Fort Myers, Tampa, and yes, Orlando.
