Having visited Florida on 8 previous occasions, i have always hired a car and drove lots and lots of miles all over the state. I have never visited Key West and ive only stopped off I-10 for gas at Tallahassee on my way from Pensacola. I really want to visit one or the other or both. Im travelling with my wife and my twin 13 yr old sons next June and will be in based in Orlando Florida for 15 days. Ive always liked the laid back, hedonistic atmosphere of the "conch" republic., but was wondering if there is much to do for a family? or should i visit Tallahassee instead? I would love to visit as its the state capital and i would like "Old Florida" with oak trees draped in moss canopied roads, the old historic centre and the "southern" style hospitality. I could even visit Monticello or Thomasville as well. Considering my boys get bored at times, im wondering which itinerary would be more suitable and if a 1 night stay would do either area justice?
