Hope some of you guys can help. We're from London and travelling to Florida in early Nov. We've done the Miami, Keys and east coast thing before and have decided on the west coast this time. Thing is, we're not sure where.
We'd like to be near the beach, stay somewhere central and somewhere fairly high standard - 4/5 star. We also thought the more southern places like Marco and Naples might be warmer than if we went further north.
Naples seems to have more in the way or restaurants, shops etc (and it has Abercrombie!) but we're not sure about staying 9 blocks from the beach on a main road. Having said that, Marco Island seems to have some great beach resorts, but seems much quiter on places to eat, drink etc. We don't want to rely on the hotel for that. Where would you recommend?
Also, can any of you help us out on beaches? Love the white sand and boardwalks of Miami, are either of these towns anything like this?
Thanks for all your help
