My favorite development is the Reunion (Ginn properties), which has a 2 acre water park and 2 golf courses (WPGA plays there)...sometimes you can get good resale deals; they also have rental programs.
Miami/Ft. Lauderdale area is also very hot...especially now that we've got the $3 billion Resorts World Miami coming...see: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wfnLzgNi3VQ&feature=share
