Dinner key is great.. Many kids parks amenities and a marina. If you don't want to anchor 300 a month for a mooring with launch service. Close to bus and rail go any where cheap

Re: A Florida Anchorage with 2 boys (8 & 11 yo)?

St Augustine... You can get a mooring ball right downtown, lots of shops, activities and history. The marina will come out to your boat to pump out. The city will be lit up with their Night of Lights as well. Also, there is a St Aug Cruisers Net on every morning at 9am on vhf channel 72.

Boot Key harbor in Marathon would be my suggestion. Right now there are no less then 10 kids all having a great time in the harbor. The city park has constant activities, homeschool PE etc. you can anchor OR pickup a ball and pump out comes to you.

Lots of Northerlies in Dec, Rodriguez and Tavernier key are greatboats and close to lots of fun depending on wind direction. Not sure your draft / bridge clearance but if your under 4.5' and 65' you could anchor backside / SW side of snake creek in the harbor there. Also great and close to shops great holding etc you can snorkel for lobster in the shallows there, lots of fish etc..
Boot key is cool, Bahia honda's great but unless you get on the noaa boat mooring buoy or stay at the marina I wouldnt recc anchoring.
