The Route: Overseas Highway – Florida Keys

Must Eat Meals: Florida – Key Lime Pie

Tallahassee is in the extreme north of Florida, and our next destination was in the far south.  August 2 was cloudy and rainy in western Florida, which made it a good day to be confined to the car.

Colorado Road Trip: Nebraska

After leaving Wind Cave, we drove south to the South Dakota/Nebraska border.  We were finished exploring South Dakota for this trip.  Our trip through Nebraska would cover only the northwest corner of the state this time around.  We had several stops on our list, though. We would start with overnight in Alliance, followed by a… Continue reading Colorado Road Trip: Nebraska
