Siesta Key vs Captiva vs Naples

Hi there!

Mi wife and I are planning a trip to Florida between November 22nd and Dicember 13th, with our daughters (they will be 1 and almost 3 years old for then). We will be in WDW about ten days, and we want to spend some days on the beach, too (we will arrive from Argentina on Nov, 22, stay until 25 on the beach, then WDW until 12/7. and beach again until 12/13, when wil return home)

So, we need some advice, since we´re really puzzled about which beach city select! We will like a place to rest, play on the beach with our girls, have some poolside-and-beer kind of relax, but also will like a place we will go for a walk and maybe some kids atraction. Also, we wonder which city will be the best choice to be during thanksgiving!

All your advice and local insights will be extremely usefull!

Thanks in advance!

Oh, no problem! Actually, our first idea was to fly to ORL, but the plane connection with a baby and a toddler didn´t look too atractive jajaj

We really apreciate all your tips! It´s almost sure that we will rent a condo in the Palm Bay Club, as u suggested. I´ve read a lot of reviews and I think it´s a great choice.

Thanks again for so useful advice!!!! It was really helpful to make a decision and choose Siesta Key!

Some folks have mentioned Sanibel/Captiva, Dec.7 and 8th would be special time. Luminary festival is like halloween all over again.

Hi There!

CapBeachVilla, thanks for the advice! The festival looks pretty interesting, we keep it in mind, since we´ll visit Captiva or Sanibel, and will be cool to arrange the trip in those dates

Have a nice day!
