Thanks again! Will definitely avoid 95 and our plans are made for chillaxin'

After looking this over some more, we may see about wondering over to Okeechobee on our way down to the Keys, it's not going to add that much more time to our plans and it sounds like it would be worth checking out!

The Sugar Cane fields and the Everglades are truly unique and a complete 180 from the nightmare that is the South East coast of Florida!! Enjoy the Keys they are beautiful!

Use the Florida Turnpike instead of I95. It is really congested the further south you go. Otherwise, your planned route is good.

Fla. trip

If you find yourself in Key West on a Sunday morning, take yourself to Louies Backyard for the Sunday Brunch. Your mouth and tummy will thank you!
And have a Bloody Mary for me and the wife. Or 2!

We've been to the Keys twice,both times stayed @ Bahia Honda S.P ,AWESOME ! I 75 TO US 41 TO I 95 TO Fla.1 and a boat load of bridges. US 41 is great ,no traffic and thru the everglades.A great stop to eat and rest is on 41 , and plenty of alligators .So much nicer than I 75. Another wonderful destination stop is in Tampa Bay @ Fort DeSoto - another island ! We stay at both when go down .

Nice! I've heard great things bout Bahia Honda - we're staying at John Pennekamp this time around and since we'll be coming from Wekiwa State Park, we'll probably make our way down so that we pass by Okeechobee Lake. Thinking about maybe stopping by Shark Valley Visitors Center for a tram tour. So many things to do, it's hard to choose, especially when you have attention deficit tendencies, lol!

I just checked out their brunch menu, sure does look good! It appears there will be plenty of good eats to enjoy in the area so it's nice to get recommendations
