Siesta Key, Longboat Key and Lido Key are just about the most beautiful beaches I have ever been to.
Quiet with small lapping waves on white sand make it a tranquil paradise.

And if visiting that area be sure to check out the shopping at St. Armand's Circle:

Wakulla Springs remains to be one of my favorite attractions in Florida. It is one of the largest and deepest fresh-water springs in the world. From the boat-tour you can see straight down 125 feet to the spring entrance and the Wooly Mammoth bones that have been there for hundreds of years. There is a swimming area next to the springs and a very nice restaurant and hotel on grounds. Boat tours will take you up the river to explore wild birds of all kinds as well as alligators, manatees, and fish. Fishing is illegal at Wakulla Springs so the fish are quite big.
Wakulla Springs was the filming grounds for many Tarzan movies as well as creature from the Black Lagoon.
Wakulla Springs is located in Wakulla, FL at 550 Wakulla Park Drive.

Spanning the southern tip of the Florida peninsula and most of Florida Bay, Everglades National Park is the only subtropical preserve in North America. It contains both temperate and tropical plant communities, including sawgrass prairies, mangrove and cypress swamps, pinelands, and hardwood hammocks, as well as marine and estuarine environments. The park is known for its rich bird life, particularly large wading birds, such as the roseate spoonbill, wood stork, great blue heron and a variety of egrets. It is also the only place in the world where alligators and crocodiles exist side by side.

Walt Disney World

From Wikipedia

Cinderella Castle, at the center of the Magic Kingdom, is Walt Disney World Resort's most recognizable icon.

The Spaceship Earth sphere is the symbol of Epcot.

Mickey's Sorceror's Hat is the symbol of Disney-MGM Studios.

The Tree of Life is the symbol of Disney's Animal Kingdom. Owned and operated by The Walt Disney Company, Walt Disney World Resort is home to four theme parks, two water parks, more than twenty resort hotels, six golf courses, and various shopping and entertainment areas covering a total of 47 square miles (122km2) in Orange and Osceola Counties, Florida, USA .

Most of the Walt Disney Company's Central Florida land, and all of the public areas, are located in the Cities of Bay Lake and Lake Buena Vista, which are both contained in the Reedy Creek Improvement District. These governmental entities, controlled by the Walt Disney Company, are located southwest of Orlando and a few miles northwest of Kissimmee.

The Walt Disney World Resort opened on October 1, 1971. It is the largest theme park resort in the world, although Dubai Land, twice its size, is planned to open in 2006.

Flagler, that almost forgotten county between St Johns to the north (where St Augustine is) and Volusia to the south (where Daytona Beach is at) has, as of the last few years been experiencing explosive growth (read: development).

If you'd like to see a bit of what Florida once used to look like, take a trip over to Princess Place Preserve.

Situated in the northern most part of Flagler, on Pellicer Creek, it's almost as if you've gone back in time.
