Hi fellow travellers,
You helped me a few years ago and I'm hoping you will be able to help me again.
We are 2 aussie middle aged couples planning our next USA holiday. We have been to the US a few times already and we are filling in the blanks. We plan to arrive in Miami in May.
We are planning to go from Miami (fly in here and pick up a cruise). After the cruise we are going to get a car and head to New Orleans. We have been up to Savannah Georgia, Charleston, SC along the coast road before from Miami heading inland to Asheville, NC towards Nashville. For reasons mostly to do with the weather we didn't stop at Cape Canavarel and we regret that. I'm in two minds as to whether to try and squish it in somehow but I have a feeling it will be in the too hard basket as it will be on one side of the state and we will be travelling on the other side.
I am hoping that you can point me to some great places to see along the coast road opposite to the one we have already travelled. We intend to leave Miami and head to Key West. On the way back perhaps see the Everglades, Sarasota for the circus or even Alligator Alley which, if we can see alligators, sounds exciting. We have about 10 days to do this leg. We intend to leave New Orleans, fly to Denver and collect another car but that plan hasn't started yet. We like picturesque and quirky but no hiking please although we are relatively fit and young at heart! ;) We enjoy a good quality wine as well. Getting off the beaten track is good - we can only handle the big highways for a while when they bore us to tears. If you could help me with this itinerary I would be very grateful. Thanks in advance!
