I'm responding to an e-mail that I heard on the June 19th show about which beach to visit. We have visited WDW 3 times since 2003 and coming again this August from northern California. Each year we stay between 10 to 18 days, with a little 3 to 5 day break in the middle to visit a beach. We have visited Clearwate which is nice, but our favorite is Long Boat Key/Lido Beach area. It's a 2 hour drive to the gulf coast, the sunsets are beautiful, the white sandy beaches are beautiful and the is a small town (St. Armands Circle ) which is great for dining/shopping/spa.
