Hi folks me and my wife and her parents will be coming out to our house in Florida this August and plan to take in a mini road trip for about 4-5 days. We were thinking of blasting down to Miami and jumping on the Tamiami trail and continuing on US Route 41 after Tampa and head as far north as we can before we have to turn back for Kissimmee. I was wondering if anyone had done this and could they comment on what we can expect to see en-route. We are not that bothered about doing loads of driving each day we are more concerned about taking in the sites etc. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Also would it be worth avoiding the Everglades in August can we expect to be eaten alive by the mosquito's ?? we were thinking of going on a air boat ride.
