The tail-end of our trip is the drive from Tampa to Miami. We expect to leave noonish and spend the afternoon driving. We are flying out the next day so there is no deadline to meet. At 4 hrs long we'll want to stop to stretch our legs a few times.
We will have driven Tamiami Trail and done the Shark Valley tram on our way to Tampa.
Also will have done Fort Myers/Cape Coral area on the way to Tampa.
Could you recommend some sights that are close to the I75 that we could stop at? We'd want short (1/2 hour or less adventures) close to the I75. Since they're quick we wouldn't want to spend much money for entrance fees.
It will be a Tuesday in April. We are interested in scenery/wildlife, some history, maybe shopping. Short hikes into wilderness are OK. The less populated the better (she types hopefully...)
More water views and gators definitely OK, I only mentioned our previous stops because we don't want to do the SAME sights.
The Oasis Visitor Center would have been perfect but we don't want to drive that way again.
Considered Myakka Canopy Walk but perhaps will take too long and seems to be debate about whether its worth it.
Thanks in advance.
