The beaches in the Tampa/Clearwater area are great. We particularly enjoyed the beach at Honeymoon Island State Park.

And another vote for Kennedy Space Center.

or Dixie Crossroads in Titusville


Haven't been there yet, but friends go there. I also think it is a much better suggestion than Bubba Gumps.

Lots of wonderful suggestions, and I'm making a note of them, I think we will be spending Christmas 2019 in Orlando and the Coral area. The Space Center has areas the 5 y/o should enjoy.


Looking forward to new adventures and new friends.

We went to Dixie Crossroads twice in one visit; first and last time.

It was ok food but really nothing special.

LOL, That was my opinion of Bubba Gump's when we visited in Charleston, except it was also over priced.

It's a hard drive if you're driving straight through. Break up the trip and stay overnight on the way down. We drove from Northern Kentucky to WDW a couple of years ago and stopped in Georgia and stayed the night. I highly recommend Eagles Roost Campground in Lake Park.
