Default Best Small Beach Town In Florida?

I currently live in Orlando, and am looking to move with my husband and two kids. We'd like a nice quaint town near the water. My husband grew up in Mt Dora, we love it there but it's a bit pricey for us and plus I like coastal. I don't really like the tampa area. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Personally I think Palm Coast is yuck. But that's just me.

I first moved to Ormond Beach and we stayed in an apartment until we looked around and bought a house. We bought in Port Orange. You should look there. Very nice, clean, good schools, minutes from Daytona Beach...

Flagler Beach----east of Palm Coast is lovely! No high rises allowed and A1A runs along the beach so there is nothing to block the view of the beautiful ocean!

Cape San Blas, FL--no highrises, no commercialism, sugar white sand, family friendly atmosphere (can't get a tatoo or a nose ring anywhere :-) )...just a GREAT place!

I live in Hernando on the west coast - it is lovely and we have small beaches that you would love. It is serene here and small. Plus we have the weeki-wachee river which also gives you the fresh water plus the gulf.
