Quaint beach towns

by jdrake »

Hi all,

We're planning a trip to Florida in late October and we're looking for a location that meets these criteria:

beautiful beach
cute town with shops/restaurants/historic district 
not too far from an airport (under two hours)
preferably not too crowded (we're not expecting solitude, we just don't want to feel like we're in Miami)
close enough to some good snorkeling that we can take a day trip to snorkel

What towns should we be looking at? We've done a little research into New Smyrna, Siesta Key, etc. are we on the right track? Are there other towns we should be looking at?

Thanks for your help!

Florida is a good place to visit. There are many beaches to visit like Jacksonville Beach, Daytona Beach, Panama City Beach, West Palm Beach, Naples, Fort Lauderdale, Sanibel, etc. as you are coming to visit Florida, you will be bringing your personal belongings. See that you keep your luggage safe. There are many hotels in Florida that will provide you Hotel Room Safes to safe keep your luggage.
