@MissMudge:  I am getting married in Anna maria, which is about 1 1/2 hours away from Orlando, I think. You can find a lot of house and condo rentals. There aren’t as many hotels though, because it has a lot of laws about zoning, which makes it so laid back and beautiful!

@MissMudge:  It’s a very laid back place, not really a lot of nightlife. There are a lot of great food places, if you are looking to actually do a lot of stuff, you wouldn’t want to be here, its more for someone who wants to just relax and escape from a bunch of people. There are little shops and it’s close to stuff to do, but the actual island is just really quaint.

Maybe try St Augustine? It’s within 2 hours or so, beautiful beaches, fun little historic town, it’s not super nightlife-y but it’s cute and fun to visit.

My hometown is about 3 hours away on Amelia Island, and it’s adorable and really nice to visit. The resorts are great, but there’s also houses/condos to rent if you prefer. Good beaches, small island, great seafood.

I used to live near Cocoa Beach and to be honest, I would skip that whole area.  It’s not the nicest and it’s pretty boring.  And Daytona Beach is very touristy and Spring Breakish.  Definitely not a place I would want to honeymoon.

I think the West Coast is better.

ETA – I have heard St Augustine is nice but never been there.  Boca Raton is also nice but it’s about a 3 hour drive from Orlando.

if I were you, I’d drive to Miami, stay there, and drive back to fly back.
