It is only about 230 miles from Orlando to Miami
, but it seems longer. If you have a high tolerance for four hours of boring road, then do it. There is no sailing in Orlando to speak of, and February in Miami is a whole different world from Feblando.
I live in Orlando, and Orlando has a lot going for it, but not boat shows. If you like fishing
, or sailing small boats on freshwater, then there is fun to be found within 50 miles, but if you have the need to window-shop on the deck
of a brand new blue water
cruiser, then you are in for a road trip.
