My husband and i are planning a Florida roadtrip. We are flying to Miami, stay there for 2 nights (18th april - 20th april), then we are planning to rent a car and drive around Florida. We have 6 nights, we would like to see Florida Keys (but not necessarily, because we'll go on a cruise there later), the West coast some central and northern Florida and then return to Miami. We would like to see The Kennedy Space Center and Disneyworld (where is best to spend the night for those two atractions?) Any suggestions what is really worth seeing? Where to spend the nights, what cities/towns to see? We would like to take it easy but still see what's worth seeing. What is the distance between Miami and Orlando, how much does the drive take and which route to take?
Also, we were planning to stay in Motel 6 while on the road, mostly because we do not really know any other motels that are rather on a budget but still clean and feel safe (we stayed in motel 6 while travelling around California, but we chose the ones in the cities rather than the ones outside by the road). Any ideas on good alternatives to Motel 6?
