Everglades planning

Jump to last reply

I am tentatively planning a trip to southern Florida in late November/early December.

What I am looking at now is:

Flying in from Europe to Miami or Ft. Lauderdale. First night at airport hotel or a bit further out, depening on time of flight arrival.

Day 2, driving to Homestead and touring Everglades. First question: Is there enough to do here to spend two nights? That would be 1 1/2 to 2 full days there.

Day 3, driving to Key West, for two nights.

Day 5, driving back north to Sweetwater area, stopping at evey thing along the way on the keys that look interesting. Or is Homestead a better choice?

Day 6, visit Shark Valley and go on to Everglades City. Two nights there, or one? Are there short walks availabe there, and guided tours? If not,then one night would be plenty.

Day 7 plus -- a few days on th Gulf in the Naples area

Next to last day: head east to Sawgrass Mills, hotel ?? Fly home next day.

Tips and suggestions very welcome!

As to us, we are both late 50's (oh crap, I will be 60 by then!) and want to see the nature, not the cities.

Thanks!
