We have a spare 2 days/ 1 night before we need to be in Ft Pierce, leaving Miami in the morning. We have driven the coast road before and will be returning to Miami via it so wondered if driving inland will give a nice variety of scenery. We are avid bird and nature lovers. Are there places to stop and walk/view etc around Lake Okeechobee and then stop overnight around the Placid Lakes area. Would this be a good option?
