FI and I are looking to honeymoon in Florida in late July. We spoke with a travel agent who suggested that we consider either Clearwater or Naples. Can anyone recommend one over the other? Neither of us have ever been to Florida. We're looking to have a relaxing/romantic vacation while staying within our budget (under $2,000). We would like to avoid a party destination, but FI prefers to be in an area where there are interesting things to do nearby (aside from spending time at the beaches).
Any hotel recommendations would also be very helpful. In Clearwater, we've looked into the Clearwater Beach Marriot, Sheraton Sandkey Resort, and the Hilton Clearwater Beach Resort. We'd also be open to considering St. Petersburg if there were any comparable options there. We haven't checked too extensively into Naples yet, though someone told us that the Naples Beach Hotel & Golf Club could be a nice option.
Any advice would be much appreciated!
