We originally were going to go to Disney/Universal but are daunted by the crowds. We have opted to go to Clearwater/St Petersburg but KNOW NOTHING about this area except that the Phillies do their spring training there. We are 2 families totaling 3 adults and 4 children. We would like beachfront with a pool, close to restaurants and if possible a playground. We would like to spend a day at Busch Gardens, maybe the zoo or catch some baseball games. If anybody knows of a great hotel or rental home/condo Please let us know. Thanks in advance for any input!
