*If you stopped by the site yesterday, you might have wondered what the map of Florida was doing on the site with no information and no post. That would be me and my stellar WordPress skills. Here is what that map is for!
We are getting ready to embark on our first big trip of the summer. We were invited to Lauderdale-by-the-Sea to explore this cute little town right above Ft. Lauderdale. When we were planning the trip, I mentioned to my husband that the Florida Keys weren’t all that much farther south and wouldn’t that be a fun addition to the trip? I have always wanted to visit the Keys and I think that it would be a shame to be so close and not be able to go. We have added the Keys to the itinerary and removed them twice. The Keys are back in the itinerary and we have a hotel booked in Key West.
After we visit the Florida Keys, we are going to travel back north through the Everglades to Weeki Wachi Springs State Park where we will get to meet the famous mermaids (my daughter is beyond excited!). From there we will return home.
Here is where I need your help. I have lived in Florida for 15 years and we have traveled much of it. That being said, most of that travel has been on the Gulf Coast and to central Florida. I have been to Miami twice, once for a brief conference in college and once to go on a cruise. Other than that, my knowledge of south Florida is limited. Also, I am pretty sure we haven’t been on I-95 (in Florida) for very long if at all.
Where should we stop? Is there anything that we absolutely should do while we are in any of these places? Leave us a comment and let us know what you think.
