Outside the Park - Where to Go??? Trip Planning
Posted 04 October 2009 - 09:20 PM
I want to do the space center but we are saving this for next year when we go with friends who have kids.
So, if you are native to Florida, where should we go? I really want to see the Florida beaches and water. My father mentioned St. Augustine. We could drive to Daytona and then head up to St. Augustine. The trip seems to be about 120 miles one way. What do you think? We have reservations for Chef Mickey’s and then will head out for the day. Sometime around 9:30 a.m. How is traffic at that time?
We really like small, quaint towns. Maybe some fishing and neat shops. Any other ideas?

If you want a nice beach Caladesi State Park is amazing. Not a lot of people know about it so you don't get huge crowds. You have to take a ferry to get there but it's totally worth it. Google it.

There's also other things that are best described as tourist traps, such as the fountain of youth or the haunted tours, but they're all in good fun.

QuickGold. The Spanish Fort is what interested us in St. Augustine along with the beaches. We get teased so much because we have been to WDW so many times and have never been to the coast. I will feel vindicated when I bring my little bottle of sand back.
