Hey everyone. We are total experts when it comes to the Orlando area, but we are venturing further afield on our December trip. We've decided to tag on five days or so to our Orlando visit to take a tour of the Everglades and Keys. My little boy is CRAZY about alligators and wildlife of any kind, and I've always wanted to see the Everglades. And, I like the idea of driving down through the keys as well. Always wanted to see that part of the state and the little guy is obsessed with pirates, and we heard there might be some pirate stuff to explore. But...I'm totally lost on where to even begin planning that! Does anybody have any tips on.... Possible itineraries and/or routes? Things to see in each of those areas? We're interested in seeing some of the "old Florida roadside attraction" type places and lots of nature...not so much more theme parks or cities. Good (moderately priced) places to stay? It will be me, my eight and a half year old son, and our dog...so we need someplace pet friendly. We don't need fancy, just clean and safe. We generally prefer cabins and villas to hotels. Any "not to be missed" places to eat? Thanks so much for any advice or help you can give!
