This is a great road to travel. It takes you through Sarasota which is a must for stopping over if you are travelling the west coast of Florida. Today we drove the Trail through the Everglades. I really hoped we would see some gators and I wasnt disappointed! we saw a couple crossing the highway and I stopped at one of the stopping places and saw one which I video'd for quite a while. It was amazing to get up so close. We also saw a large turtle sauntering along the roadside! As opposed to a lot of our travelling which I just wanted to get from A to B asap, I took my time driving this part of the trail and its quite a quiet road through the Everglades. There are plenty of opportunities to stop and take an airboat ride if the mood takes you and you pass few quite a few indian villages along the route. Naples to Miami was about 100 miles at a guesstimate. Unlike a lot of the highways which are fast and furious, i found this a pleasant unhurried drive - enjoy!
