I would add the fact that you can get 3 bedroom vacation rental In central Fl for the price of a good hotel.
Just don't fall for the timeshare tours. That is unless you are a professional moocher, my daughter will schedule 3 tours for $100 cash each one day to have spending $$ when they visit. She has her kids trained to start raising hell after the required 90 minutes and the resort can't get them out fast enough.

Google Central Florida vacation home rental http://www.google.com/search?q=centr...ient=firefox-a

Sanibel

Thinking about coming to Sanibel Island in November. Looking for resort recommendations. Bringing the wife and kids (ages 1 and 3).

Good Luck

The last time I stayed on the island we rented the downstairs of a house from some folks that were out of town.

If you don't want anything expensive or upscale you can always try Jenning's Fish Camp, they've got cabins but they're not on the beach

There's all prices to be paid there on Sanibel

We were there for a wedding this past March and the traffic was terrible too

Just not the same place as my youth but then where is?

If want to rough it a bit get a State Park Cabin on Cayo Costa

My girls hate it so yea,

It's really great

I suppose you're looking to take the little ones shelling and that would be great on Sanibel

With them being so young you really need a place right on the beach

Where are you going to fly into?

It's on captiva, but for kids you can't beat south seas plantation.

I have to go to Orlando for a week for work so I am riding down on my SV.. Looking for some good evening rides and/or dinner locations. I will probably be at a crappy hotel by Universal like last time. I like to play photo tag too but don't know the area well. Is there one near Orlando? Anyhoo any suggestions?? Or wanna meet up for a little ride?

There you go Williefast, Click on "view larger map" below the map.
Anyway, that's a nice ride from Universal that doesn't take all day.

Thanks Z,

I had found that, but they are not taking reservations right now due to work on campground.
Too far for us to go and not be sure that we can get in.

I have also camped at blue spring SP, but they are booked up.



I had hoped someone could suggest a lesser known county park.

Forgot to add Kelly Park to the mix Ogre. That's a pretty neat park.
