    I'm looking at possibly a week on the coast, we're thinking about Palm Coast. Seen a 2 bedroom condo at the Legacy Palm Coast resort, has anybody been or got any suggestions of places to stay (ideally 2 bedrooms) and things to do other than obvious of Kennedy and Daytona.
    Thanks

    Palm Coast is a residential area, and as a result would be pretty boring, I'd think. For a coastal stay, east coast? Drop south of Daytona, unless you are going to stay in St. Augustine. I'm a rare one who dislikes the St. Augustine area, but loads and loads of people love it.

    Cocoa Beach is nice if you want to spend time on the beach. Canaveral is right there. Much will depend upon on how far south you want to go.

    Englewood is a lovely area just below Venice Beach- we loved it there and there aren't many Brits so you can really get away :)

    I have been going to Florida for many years and I realise there are many places that I have never been

    Depends on if you want Atlantic Ocean (east coast) or the Gulf (west coast).
    Englewood and Venice are nice, to be sure. However, if I were going to vacation on the Gulf coast, I'd go to Fort Myers Beach, Sanibel, Captiva, Marco Island, Anna Maria Island... those sorts of places. Sarasota is lovely, too. It's one of my favorite cities in Florida.

    On the West Coast we have been to Anna Maria Island and really enjoyed ourselves. We took a day trip up to St. Pete/Clearwater and Tarpon Springs.

    We really just want a few days near a beach, just chilling out. Not bothered which coast.
