Where to sail on Fla''''s East Coast...

Thanks for the advice on Abacos, almost went there two years ago. My questions are mostly with the East coast of Florida. If you had a week to spend there on the boat, where would all of you fellow cruisers go? As mentioned before, all the charts are in Clearwater and I;m in Pittsburgh, so I can''t really see or know of interesting places to check out, places to pick up a mooring ball, good/bad marinas, areas to avoid, etc. It seems to me that most of S. FLA is strictly endless beach with inlets to the ICW. I know we''re looking for some interesting places to check out and not just do daysails in the ocean, and we are looking for places to tie up that aren''t party places, or dangerous. Also, how far offshore from Ft. Lauderdale to you have to sail to reach the edge of the gulf stream? Thanks!
