We will be in Orlando in October with a large family group. 2 families 7 kids from 12-2. Can anyone suggest a family friendly beach within driving distance from Orlando. We will do some Disney but need a beach day or two.

Daytona is on the Atlantic Coast, it's about 60 miles from Orlando.

Don't know that I'd recommend going in the water- my daughter Manda went to school in Daytona for 5 years, and never got in the water- they were always having shark warnings.

Daytona Beach will host BikeOctoFest from 10/15-10/19. I have fun when I go, but I am over 30;) and have no big issues with leather, tattoos, or Harley-Davidson stuff.:D

Cocoa is a guick trip and a nice Atlantic Coast beach. With little ones, you might want to consider Treasure Island or Clearwater to the west. It's an extra half-hour or more in driving time, but the waters are much calmer, safer and quite beautiful.:cool:

If you want waves, go east to Cocoa (one hour drive). If you want calm water, go west to Siesta Key or Bradenton beach (1 1/2 hours). I prefer the Gulf coast but my sons like the waves. Maybe try one day on each side!
