Looking for some suggestions

DW or Ol-lady as I affectionately refer to her and 3 of our 6 kids are going camping over the Thanksgiving holiday this year probably in Florida. Any suggestions in the St. Augustine or the Pan Handle area. Has to have plenty of attraction for the kids. Zoo's, parks etc., etc. We will be traveling from Maryland.

St Augustine Rocks, but will sometimes be a little (eg very) cool around the holidays. If yo want to wander around a really old and quaint town it is VERY cool, and you can go to the alligator farm. I donno about the panhandle, it is just resorts beaches and will also be a bit cool..

A group of fl campers are going to ga vet park by cordel. Has lots to do for kids. St Aug has several nearby that provide great busy times. check KOA, FL Sp, hanna in jax. fl. Ga Vets is a very great park with the most things to do.

We're staying at Stagecoach RV park in St Augustine over the Thanksgiving holiday. It's outside of town, but close enough to easily get around. Nothing fancy but it's clean and the sites aren't as close as some of the other CG's in town.

There is much to do in Fl. If you go to myfl or the state site you will get a list of activities. Safe trip. My MIL is from wildwood. Moved down 8yrs ago loves it here.

Been there, done that. We stayed at Bryn Mawr which is ocean front and, although a bit parking lotish, it had good access to the ocean. My favorite was it's quite unexpected. It sits between the ocean and intracoastal waterway although you have to cross the road to go Atlantic side. When you check in, you drive down into a hammock of oaks that you park under; very other worldly; I didn't care for the KOA there; the state park was nice but you'd need to be careful , lots of trees, not sure our 5er could have made it.

Good luck and have a blast; one of my favorite getaways
