I am trying to plan a trip to southern florida. I would like to visit the Everglades National Park and the Florida Keys. I plan to drive down from the washington dc area possibly in January. How long should i allow for this trip? Should i stay at one place once im in southern florida and see everything from there or do two different places? What are good home bases for these destinations? Plus, how long is the drive, i was kinda considering driving straight through without a stopover. My interests are the Flamingo and shark valley parts of the everglades and driving down to key west and seeing the sights along the way. Also, the drive down from Washington DC, is I-95 all the way down the best and fastest way? Plus, what is the traffic like on it once you get past DC and Richmond?
