As a first experience I'd highly recommend Cypress Cove in Kissimmee. Family friendly, lots to do , accommodations and eatery. And pretty much friendly by all. Though the Cove will spoil you with the experience you won't receive in most other resorts.
Completely agree. The Cove was my first and still my favorite. I recommend it as your first as you will have a great experience for sure.
Followed up a search on this topic and it brought me to this thread. I want to thank you all for the tips. Wife and I will be there starting in Miami in a couple of weeks. South Beach, Haulover, Key West will be the first stops. Trip isn't just a tour, it's a recon for future potential snowbird destination.
So besides the top pick, any other suggestions on Fla west coast outside the Sarasota area?
