In a few short weeks, Shayne and I are off to Florida for a much needed vacation! We actually haven't gone away anywhere like this since 2009 when we went to Dominican for Shayne's sister's wedding. We are looking forward to the warmth and relaxation!
My parent's have a time share there and we will be staying there for a week along with my brother, sister-in-law and five year old niece. It should be a great time! They are flying down to meet us but Shayne and I have decided to drive and make a road trip of it.
We will be coming in through Detroit and down i-75 through Michigan, Ohio, Kentucky, Tennessee, Georgia and finally Florida. We have a rough idea of how we will break down the drive. We plan to drive to Knoxville, Tennessee the first day and spend the night there. That's about a nine and a half hour drive. The second day, we plan on driving about 3 hours to Atlanta, Georgia and spending the afternoon there at the aquarium and then getting a hotel. The third day, we will drive the last 7 hours to get to Orlando and check in at our condo. It will be a lot of driving but it should be fun and I'm looking forward to seeing some things along the way.
While in Florida, we plan on going to Universal (both parks) and possibly the Magic Kingdom (for my niece). Aside from that, we plan on spending some time by the pool, relaxing and enjoying ourselves. We also might head to the ocean for a day.
On the way home, we will likely try to do the drive in two days- Orlando to Knoxville and then Knoxville home. I'm very much looking forward to some time off with family and the hubby.
Now- share with me suggestions for what to do, what to see, where to eat, where to stay and all that good stuff in Orlando and all along the way!
Any one else have a winter vacation planned?
