We are thinking about venturing out of our safe zones and taking a trip to Florida. I don't think we are ready for Disneyland yet but would like to go somewhere on the beach. Any recommendations?

Of course, we require a full kitchen as both of my sons have allergies (peanut, nuts and dairy, egg, peaches).
Thanks.

What's your budget?

I know of a GREAT place near Tampa bay... but it's expensive. We used to own a condo there, but had to sell this year. Just the municipal taxes got out of our budget..

And you can get your hands on SunButter nearby. It's a peanut butter substitute made with sunflowers. We LOVE the stuff!

Cleo,
Thanks for the email. Exactly where did you stay? The prices aren't so bad - I've looked into more expensive ones.

Are the hospitals nearby? We're thinking of either going at the beginning of March or towards the end, what do you suggest?

Thanks alot,
Boys' mom

The place is called Land's End. It's on Treasure Island.
We used to own a condo there, and the new owner isn't renting, so you can't have the exact same condo. The links I gave you are about Land's End, both of them.

Did you know that Disney is supposed to be one of the friendliest vacation places for those with allergies?

On another forum that I belong to, parents are always raving about Disney Land, Disney World, and Disney cruises.

I also have some info from a family in my local group who recently went to Orlando / Disney World. PM me with your email if you'd like a copy.

Thanks Karen, but I already ' own' the last post in that thread ;-)

It's just great when you can buy Sunbutter at the store, right next to the peanut butter jars. In fact, it scared my boy, he wouldn't get the jar on his own. Poor kid.

Oops - sorry - missed that ! :)

I do wish we could still buy it in the store, but at least we don't have to pay U.S. duties now! :)
