      Where to stay in sSouth Florida Easr Coast

      Florida Yesterday

      Hello

      I am planning our 7e travel in South Florida for November. Our 1st stop is in Fort Lauderdale but we do not want to drive too much. Our idea is to go North from FL to Fort Pierce. What are the best places to stay on this route.

      We wish to stay near the beaches but also in the towns in order to do some visits and see some attractions. Have you proposals for this project. We will have a leasing car.

      Are there greyhound races in November ? If I remeber well they begin in December.

      We do not foresee to go in the Everglades where we have already gone several times but if you know some thing interesting between the A 75 and the Okeechobee Lake, I would thank you to tell me what.

      Thank you for you proposals.

      Check of the best dates to travel

      Hello

      I am planning to travel by car in South Florida between 14th November and 24 November 2015 (Miami, Fort Lauderdale, Flirida city, Key West).
      To avoid any concern during the vacation, I wish to know if there are a special fest or event in this area during this period.
      I remember our first vacation in Miami Beach in November 2002, we had a warm weather but it is the only experience we have of this season. What temperature and weather can we expect ?
      Thanks a lot for the answers.

      We are planning a trip to Florida through Miami at the end of this year. There are only 2 direct flights : Air France and American Airlines. The best schedule is AA (10:00 AM - 2:10 PM) . I have read the comments on seat guru to know how is the business class and it seems the seats are old and shabby. I read only 1 comment and see 1 photo on seat guru on this topic.
      Is somebody has a personal experience of the flghts AA62 and AA63 and of the comfort of the business class of the plane ( Boeing 777-300-200) ?

      My lover and I are flying standby to RSW (Fort Myers Airport) this friday. We are on a time budget and price budget. This is our first time traveling together. We live in the country close to Lake Pepin on the Mississippi River.

      This is Jeffrey's first time to Florida and Rebecca's first time to plan a trip on a budget.

      Should we stay at the Flamingo Lodge and Marina and outpost?

      How much should it cost per nite?

      We are so excited to get away, we are in our mid forties and healthy but not looking for dangerous adventure. Just beauty and sun and nature.

      Thank you for your time.

      We leave Thurs. 25th at nite or Friday AM 26th from Minneapolis ST. Paul. and stay till Monday 29th.

      Kind regards,

We have a friend in Key West with snorkle trip options, but we understand it will be an extremely busy time of year both to travel there or to join a boat trip snorkeling. Are there any options from Southern Florida Mainland? We will be taking walks, nature watching..is it warm enough for tent camping and swimming? Thanks in advance.

      We will be in Miami so a drive from there the the everglades would be fine as well.

      Everglades in late October

      by thebeatsurrender Online Now Sep 17, 2006 at 8:39 PM

      My company is doing an offsite in Miami in late October, and I think I'm going to stick around for a 1-2 day trip to the Everglades. I need your help with a couple of questions:

      1. What are the most important things to do? My travel philosophy is neither super touristy nor super roughin' it -- i.e. i want to taste the real thing but don't particularly like to hike.

      2. How bad are the mosquitos in late october? I just came back from 2 days in the amazon with 31 mosquito bites (scratch scratch). better or worse?

      3. Anyone wanna come with me? None of my white-collar yuppie-type coworkers are the least bit interested, and i wouldn't mind some company (23, female, smoker -- on the prowl for gators, not hook-ups).
