Hey there. We are planning our July vacation to the keys. I have been once about 6 years ago but only to dive. We stayed in a dive, LOL. We are usually in PCB or Destin, but are going to RELAX to the keys. I have a 2 part question. First, does it matter if you stay on the gulf side vs. the Atlantic side in terms of water conditions and beauty? Also, I completely understand that there aren't many beaches, but taking my Mom, so a small beach is very important for her to be able to get into the water. What is a reasonable place with a beach? My main goal is relaxation, so no nightlife or water sports are necessary. Thanks in advance!
