ATL to Key west, need advice!!!
Hello Florida brothers and sisters. I'm planning to take a 10 day ride from ATL to Key west. I want to make it down to the St. Augustine area on the first day. Then stroll down the coast to South Beach and spend a half day or so on A1A. Then on to Key West for a day or two. Then head home up the gulf coast on the way home. I'm traveling with my wife and the typical tiny strom luggage. We want to stop and see things on the way but want to be in relaxed attire (flip flops and shorts or our riding gear). I need some advice, where would you stop? What would you have to eat, see or stay on a similar trip. Also I'm going 18th through 26th of July. Is this a good or bad time for any reason? Do I need to make reservations or is this the off season? Should I be worried about the rain or is the afternoon storms easy to dodge?
I would greatly appreciate any tips or advice. I know very little about the Florida Atlantic coast and the Keys. I have been to South Beach on business so i'm familiar with the tourist areas there but I'm trying to find a hotel room with some type of safe parking for the bike. Also I'm worried about flying blind into the keys and getting raped for a hotel room.
I will post my adventure when we return.
