Re: Visit in Florida
What Lee said is mostly right Miami to Key west is closer to a hundred miles but it will take you a minimum of three hours to drive it,
Also being from a small town in France you may not realize how big of a city Miami and Orlando is,
have you ever ridden a motorcycle on a six lane highway at 70+ mph
with a car less than a car length from your rear fender
while others are passing you on the left,
right and cutting in front of you if there's more than a car length there.
There are many beautiful places to visit in Florida
but Miami and Orlando are not very good places to ride a motorcycle
especially if you don't know your way around.
Take a ride to Key west, (go during the week if you can, traffic doubles on the weekend)
take your time maybe spend the night, it's a beautiful ride you'll never forget.
go the speed limit or it will cost you $$$.
Rent a car and go see South beach in Miami, have lunch, walk the beach.
Drive that same car to Cape Canaveral (very interesting)
Still want to ride and see some of the real Florida, ride across the state to Naples on 41
you'll see alligators laying on the banks of the canal next to the road,
take an airboat tour.
(alligator alley is now nothing but an interstate, nothing to see there)
Ride around Lake Okeechobee through the sugar cane
Still want to go to Orlando, rent a car, nothing there but hotels,
theme parks and traffic, traffic, traffic.
