help with family friendly vacation

My husband and I are thinking of taking our 1 year old to florida the week after easter. we don't want to do orlando because we figured we'll be taking her there in a couple of years when she'll be able to appreciate it more and i found great airfare flying into fort lauderdale, but thinking of heading to west palm beach or somewhere nearby. we plan on renting a car and would like to go to the beach/pool, go to family friendly restaurants, walk around a town/city. we love zoos, aquariums, that kind of stuff. also any recs on places to stay. would love to be on the beach or within walking distance, stay in a suite so once the baby goes to bed we don't have to and would ideally like to pay around $200 a night

For the time of year and your price point I would take a look at Delray Beach. It is south of West Palm Beach and just north of Boca Raton. You would have a variety of lodging options that would be around your price range, close to the beach, and a suite type set up. A few to take a look at would be - Dover House or Berkshire by the Sea.

Delray Beach has a charming beachside town feel. Delray offers a variety of lodging options close to the beach and close to Atlantic Avenue. Atlantic Ave has many restaurants and shops. There is a lovely park, with playground, at Atlantic & the intracoastal.

For a zoo there is the Palm Beach Zoo in West Palm Beach which is just a short ride north of Delray.

Based upon your post it sounds like Delray Beach would be a great option!

Delray Beach is an excellent suggestion. Regarding zoo's, in addition to the Palm Beach Zoo which is an great zoo w/ a lot of shade, I also recommend checking out Lion Country Safari.

I agree Delray is a good option and the zoo and Lion Country great spots. I personally would prefer Singer Island though. The Marriott Ocean Pointe has great suites where the bedroom is completely seperate from the living area and a nice balcony overlooks a great pool and beach. Another good option right there is the Palm Beach Shores Resort. Lots to do nearby, in addition to the zoo there is the Loggerhead Marine Center Park with fun exhibits and turtles from large green sea turtles to tiny hatchlings! Also a nice playground and just across the st from lovely Juno Beach. There are beach chairs and umbrellas on the beach in front of the Marriott.
