    There are SO many beaches within a 90 minutes drive. The Canaveral National Seashore is lovely - very quiet. There's also a wildlife driving tour within the park where you can see many alligators. You have to stay in Cocoa, however, the National Seashore is deserted of hotels. Cocoa Beach has many condos, the sand is sort of brown, but you can dine outside while watching cruise ships dock and there are alot of beachy shops. New Smyrna Beach is mostly condos and restaurants - it's considered Central Florida's "backyard" - a family kind of beach. Parts of it you can drive on, though, so it's more quiet at the southern end. It's known for great surfing and eating. www.vrbo.com has lots of condos for all of these beaches. Daytona is AWFUL - too many cars on the beach, rowdy college kids, pretty dumpy. Ormand, further north of Daytona is nicer if you like quiet but the shore is narrower. And heading south of Canaveral is Sebastian which has a lighthouse, then on to Melbourne, Vero,....the beaches get nicer as you head south in general. about 7 years ago

    I don't agree about Daytona Beach being awful or crowded. There's so much more in the area to do there than in other Florida beach areas. There's about 20 miles of sand beach and it has the best nightlife. It is, after all the spring break capital of the world. There are a lot of budget-friendly places to stay and dine unlike so many of the other uppity beaches further south. http://www.hawaiianinn.com/things-to-do/nightlife/ 6 months ago
