I have but a few days in the US after a conference now in Jan. I have booked a rental. I will start from Orlando (picking up the car at Disney).
My "plan" is (still) to get the car on a Friday. Then my "tour" would be
> Orlando - > south to Ft Lauderdale (and the huge mall there)
> Ft Lauderdale -> south to Key West
> Key West -> north to Ft Lauderdale -> west to Naples
> Naples -> North tp Crystal River/Hommossa
> Back to Orlando Airport on Wednesday.
The real places I would like to visit are
> Ft lauderdale for some great shopping at Sawgrass mills
> Key West
> Crystal River and some manatee snorkling.
As I have never been in the US and have no idea what the real driving time are from place to place.. I just wonder.. it this even feasible? I know it takes long time down to the Keys.
Or should I skip the keys and make the trip more boxy and go from Ft Lauderdale directly to Naples and up the west coast?
