I've heard the drive from Orlando to Miami is incredibly dull! Well, we're going to Orlando for a week, then taking another week to go to the keys (staying at Hawk's Cay). Google maps suggested it is a 7 hour drive from Orlando to Duck Key... so if we left around lunch, we would be driving in at sunset (ish). Yet... from reading other posts, I'm thinking that might not be accurate. Thinking Saturday (In June!) might be a little longer, due to traffic/etc. Correct?
So...has anyone driven this? Suggestions? I don't want to waste an entire day driving, really..I was thinking we could drive the card sound, and hit Alabama Jacks..etc. But I don't want to arrive at the hotel near midnight! Also, leaving for home from Miami- so car rental from Orlando/return to miami ight be expensive. Better to fly to miami, drive from there? I hear there is a shuttle from orlando to miami- leatehr seats,e tc. Anyone have suggestions?
