What is a nicer area (safe) for vacation with kids/family?

A) The area around Cocoa Beach/Cape Canaveral.

B) Ormond Beach.

I would be making a day trip to Orlando once or twice during the week also.
Thanks.

Both are nice safe areas imho. It would really depend on what you plan to do on your vacation.

The Ormond Beach area has Tomoka State Park and Bulow Plantation ruins which are interesting places to check out.

Cocoa Beach is close to the Kennedy Space Center and Merritt Island Wildlife Refuge which is an excellent place to view the native wildlife and local habitats.

This. They're both nice and safe. Cocoa will be a little closer to Orlando, but the difference in drive time is fairly negligible.

I like both places so I would try to split my time between the two.

Near Ormond Beach, an area where you can drive and have a peaceful time. A great place to bring your own food & drinks. No lifeguards in most areas though.
----------------

Cocoa Beach, where you can't drive on the beach. This is taken off the pier, it's a common wave day there.
Cocoa Beach is good for a family, since you can have choices of places to eat, and grab a drink.
An old scanned pic, but typical of how it is there.



The links in the posts above are all good places to visit.
