America's top vaycay state is best known for its beach resorts and theme parks. But besides the ersatz thrills of Orlando, the nightlife of South Beach, and the well-marketed Victoriana of Key West and Amelia Island, quiet hideaways abound as well.

Heading to Key West? Don't miss the wackiest week in an already wacky town, the annual Fantasy Fest, through Nov. 1!

I've stayed at Tradewinds with my son and his friend when they were about age 14. They loved it (and it's not easy pleasing teens). Lots for them to do.

I decided instead of Amelia Island to go to St. Petersburg for a conference, 11/4-8. It's at the Renaissance Vinoy resort, which is of course beautiful but also a little expensive, and I have a 7-year-old boy and was thinking of staying on the beach instead. I was looking at the Residence Inn on Treasure Island, the Bilmar, Sunset Villas (same area on T.R), as well as St. Pete's Beach Trade winds (2 locations), and several others. I think Clearwater is too far. I'd be grateful for any ideas!

Hey Ann! Try the Seaside Amelia Inn (, you can get rooms around $100 I think, I stayed there last year and it's clean and nice and right in front of the beach tho not as cheap as staying in the trunk of your car (WHAT are you doing in that car girl???) LOL

Any suggestions for good budget digs in the Tampa/St. Pete area? Thinking of an impromptu trip up there tomorrow.

Anybody recommend a nice but not too expensive place to stay on Amelia Island? It doesn't have to be a Victorian-type place, though of course that would be nice. Any ideas?

Check out this new, retro, themed property The Palms Retro -- This is what one of the rooms looks like, and it's on Atlantic Beach, Jacksonville Fl. The great thing is the new owner restored this iconic 50's hotel into a modern-day themed property -- sustainability at its finest.

Hey, if anybody's planning on being in South Florida in early August, there's a cool event, free to the public, on Fort Lauderdale beach the 6th through the 8th: the National Lifeguard Championships. Should be like "Baywatch" on steroids!!
