It turns out I'll be in The Villages, Florida for Christmas. My birthday is two days after Christmas, and I want to spend it at the beach. Is there a beach on either coast that far up Florida that'll be swimmable in late December?

We're getting married next June and want a beach wedding in Florida. We're looking in the general Cocoa Beach area and we're having a hard time picking the perfect beach. The wedding planner keeps trying to talk us into a beach we're not 100% in love with. We need help picking the perfect beach. Have you had a beach wedding in the Cocoa Beach area? Which beaches should we consider? We don't want something terribly crowded and touristy.

Vacation filter: My wife & I would like to take a three-day-long weekend trip for our fifth anniversary the second weekend in September (not Labor Day). Want to do nothing but laze on a beach within either a 3-4 hour drive or flight (non-stop only) from NYC. Looking for suggested destinations & hotels/resorts. Some more details inside. [more inside]

Daytona Beach! I'm there for a conference all next week. I've been there before, but this time we'll have a car. Looking for restaurants, especially lunch, and any suggestions on attractions (although we won't have tons of time for outside activities). [more inside]

looking for an upscale vacation-home in Florida for a long weekend next march (or week if required) - gulf coast - directly on the beach, somewhat isolated/ somewhat near a "town" - with multiple bedrooms (4 to 7?) - know of anything -or good agencies? where to start?
(not looking for the Panama City "party scene" -- something more "adult" less-college.)

I want to travel to Sanibel or Captiva Islands - I am looking for accommodation, but I find it very hard to make a decision based exclusively on online research. I would welcome any advice on where to stay.
I am not very fond of big chain hotels like Holiday Inn's etc.... I much prefer small motels or self-catered cabins, but I am afraid to book a shabby place because online everything looks pristine..... so, ideally I would love to find a small motel or cabin by the sea, in a quiet part of town. Another thing to consider is that I am traveling with my parents and our baby, therefore I am looking for places that have a apt-like layout, with ideally the choice of one or two bedrooms and a kitchenette.
Any advice on this and other must-see, must-eat, must-do attractions would be greatly appreciated.
