  1. Default Fort Lauderdale to ??? and seven days to do it!

    My husband and I will be flying to Fort Lauderdale during the last week of December. We are renting a car and have a week to road trip before flying home to the cold north. We would like to include New Orleans on our trip but other than that aren't sure where to go or what to see. Some offbeat attractions/hotels would be great. Any suggestions? We can fly home from anywhere so aren't concerned about where our trip ends!

    Default No Need to Go Much Farther

    Welcome aboard the RoadTrip America Forums!

    There is more than enough diversity and off-kilter sites between Fort Lauderdale and New Orleans that you really don't have to worry about where else to go. You just need to make the most of your time getting between your two end points. Starting in Florida, on the Gulf Coast, a couple of places you might enjoy checking out include Weeki Wachee Springs which harkens back to the 50's, and Cedar Key an out-of-the-way town the way Florida used to be.

    Next you could cut back through northern Florida and southern Georgia to the coast hitting an even older landscape, an untouched bit of coastline, even an area with its own unique language. Working your way back west through the mid-south of Georgia would take you past one of the low points of American history and the well-preserved summer home of one of our presidents as well as a working archaeological site in Alabama.

    You should also be sure to get a good taste of the Gulf Coast and think about entering New Orleans by a slightly roundabout route that will bring you into the city across one of the longest bridges in the world.
