Where to go on a weekend getaway from Orlando

My wife and I (early 30's) are visiting my parents in Orlando for a week in mid-March. They have kindly offered to babysit our 2-year-old for a couple of nights. We will have a car and 2 nights to go somewhere. Where should we go?
Things we've thought about so far: The Keys sound cool, but it's too much of a drive. The snorkeling and small town beach kitch are really appealing. We're not really shopping and dancing people, but Miami might be interesting. We've looked into a flight to Nassau, Bahamas but we're having trouble figuring out what it's like. We travel a lot, and aren't afraid to explore. If the border controls weren't such a pain, we'd go to Havana. (We know there are flights there via Nassau, but we're anxious about having trouble getting back into the U.S. with a toddler waiting for us.)
We have a budget of about $1000. We're open to a flight, but only short, direct ones.
