We are travelling in late March to this area for 3 - 4 days before heading up to Saint Pete Beach. We would like to shop, go to Miami beach for a few hours and hang out on beaches at hotel. We will rent a car and would like to stay somewhere resonably nice to enjoy our first trip to Florida. Will be travelling with 8 year old. Really love the ocean and beaches and clean hotel.
Do you have any advice. We can drive where ever not going out partying at night. Also spending a bit of time away from resort, so trying to figure out options.
thanks for any advice
