My boyfriend and I are planning a trip to Florida this summer. We live in Hamden, CT. We're hoping to spend about two weeks all together, but that amount of time can change depending on money, excitement, etc.
We're going to stop at Virginia Beach and spend the night there to break up the drive a little bit. Both of us are used to long roadtrips though, so I'm not too worried about that.
I think that we are going to camp for the most part, unless there's not a huge difference in price between a motel and a campground. We're definetly not picky about lodgings!
We're just looking for some nice beaches and fun things to do - we're only eighteen, so it would also be nice it we could find some nightlife that wasn't strictly 21+.
Also - my boyfriend is a chef, so we love to try out restuarants...any suggestions for where to eat?
My family is going to be in Florida around the same time, and as a graduation present offered to pay for me and my boyfriend to come stay with them for three days, July 4th-6th, at Disney in Orlando.
I really want to drive through the Keyes, and spend some time in Key West, but other than that I'm completely open to suggestions! We just want a fun trip, and want to be able to cut prices whenever possible. What's the best bargain fun in FLA? Any must-stop cities/cities to avoid?
I'm also wondering how much $ a trip like this is going to cost - I'm afraid my estimates are going to end up wrong...
Thanks so much for any advice you can offer!
