Florida East

USA flag

  My visit to the east coast of Florida took me from Orlando to Key West, with a 75 mile extension form there out into the Gulf of Mexico to Dry Tortugas.

Highlights included a thorough two-day visit to the Kennedy Space Center, visits to Fort Lauderdale and Miami, an appreciation of the Arts Deco architecture of Miami Beach, sightseeing down the Florida Keys, day sails from Key West, and the exploration of Fort Jefferson in the Dry Tortugas.

Route Map

I flew in to Orlando and drove a rental car south to Key West, with side trips along the way.  After my excursion to Dry Tortugas I doubled back to visit Miami, and returned home from there.
