Florida is a huge state with much of it being coastal. I think it would helpful if you could narrow the possibilities to a specific geographical area, which would help users to provide more specific feedback.

Within most school districts there are good performing schools that are family/child friendly. So if you could narrow it down to a specific area -- others can offer practical suggestions to better direct you in your decision making process.

Ideally, we would like to be within 1-2 hour drive from Miami, as I have a lot of family there. My husband also has family in West Palm & Naples.
We don't want to be isolated from our family, if we don't have to be.
We wouldn't want to be in Miami. We prefer a suburb rather than a city and really love the feel of Vero Beach.
I hope this helps in narrowing it down.
Thank you!

Great, thank you!

We are going down to FL on business in Feb and will be taking an extra 4-5 days to drive around different areas.

Thank you all, for your insight!
