Hi roadtrippers -
My boyfriend and I (from the UK) are going to Orlando this Friday for 5 days, 6 nights. We're staying on International Drive (I know - culture heaven! ;) ) and will do the necessary couple of theme parks, but really want to venture out for a couple of single day trips. We'd rather get off the beaten track a bit and take in some Florida countryside, but netiher of us know anything about Florida.
Can anyone suggest a couple of do-able trips that'll show us some Florida scenary - whether it's countryside or coast - and will allow us to get there and back in a day? We've both driven in the US on several road trips before so have no issue with driving long distances and getting up early / arriving back late.
I also had a vague idea about a day trip to Savannah, Georgia, as I've always wanted to go there, but Google maps tells me it's 280 miles each way, and thus perhaps unrealistic to do in a day - any suggestions as to whether this is feasible?
Any suggestions at all would be greatly appreciated!
