One other outing for you: go down to Myakka State Park (from Siesta or Longboat). A nice park for adults or kids. Take the boat ride and get to see alligators "up close and personal". Your lad should enjoy it, if he doesn't get nightmares that night!

Britishlass-- Whilst on Siesta maybe drive down to Historic Spanish Point in nearby Osprey (south of Siesta, on the way to Myakka Park). It's a nifty bit of historic Florida, not at all theme park but "real stuff". Not sure how much of it your lad will appreciate, but I suspect that you will. And as an added bonus, you might just have SRQgirl as your tour leader!

Hi SRQgirl...we are renting a friends villa near Kissimmee on a gated golfing complex as my husband plays....so that will be our base and then we will travel around from there, so we will be back and forth a lot but dont mind! We also have family in Tampa so we will try & get to see them also...We'll need a vacation to recover when we get back home.
