    Head over to Lee County's Manatee Park, about 40 miles east of your location, where you'll find manatees in a non-captive refuge. Optimum viewing times are between November and March due to the cooler gulf temperatures. There are a number of dolphin-watching cruises and kayak tours offered out of Sarasota, notably in and around Brandenton.

    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.

    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.
