    We usually go on a road trip for a few days when we go to Florida over Christmas/New Year.

    I can't decide where to look into a bit more - Orlando to Jacksonville or Orlando to Keys.

    Anyone have any experience of either of those places? We will only have 5 days tops.

    I have been to Jacksonville. I am actually scheduled to go to a school thing there in Sept.

    I hear the Keys are lovely. I'd probably go there out of the two choices.

    Otherwise, I'd go to St. Augustine.

    Last year we did 2 road trips - one to New Orleans and 1 to the Keys.

    I have a couple of write ups I did for a homeowners forum I belong to, if you'd like them Diane I can e-mail them to you.

    All I know of Jacksonville is that it's a nightmare to drive through!

    What about a little bit further up the road, could tell you everything there is to know about Charleston, truly beautiful place

    Ok, I'm going to be gentle here... I loathe, hate and despise Jacksonville.

    Head to KEY WEST!!!

    If you have 5 days allocated Diane then I would definately go down to the Keys, we absolutely love it there.
    The atmosphere there is so laid back its almost horizontal , totally different than the Orlando area, and eating out is also a darn sight cheaper than many of the restaurants around WDW.
    It would also be a good excuse to take in the Everglades either en-route or on your return journey.
