West Florida bleg

Jeannie and I will have three days and two nights while more elder Blattmans take care of Amara. They will be in Sarasota. We hope to stay within an hour’s drive (or so). Do sleepy beachtowns or hidden hideways still exist in West Florida? Reader advice welcome. We seek peace and quiet and good food, beachside. Timing is the few days before (American) Thanksgiving.
