Three words. Over Seas Highway.
Where else can you drive 105 miles of Islands linked together?
A surprise for my wife’s birthday, we would fly to colorful Miami to start our trip. A quick trip over to soak up some sun in South Beach will get us started (windows down, sunroof open, Latin Jazz blaring from the stereo.)
Time to head South.
After we leave the mainland it is almost like we are off into the abyss of water, sand, and palm trees. Not having far to travel combined with not having driven that area of the country should provide for an entertaining time (let’s hope for a Navigation unit in the SRX.)
I imagine we would stop in almost every little town on our way to Key West. I can picture little restaurants on the beach, boutique shopping, swaying palms, crystal clear water, the sound of the ocean, and a general feeling of laidbackness.
Being one of those haphazard road trips I am not sure if we would spend both nights in Key West or spend a night elsewhere (I imagine the popularity of the Keys may dictate that, but that is ok.)
All I really need to make ANY road trip amazing would be my wife. But & a nice car, plane tickets, and money for food and lodging would be a nice perk too!
