If you ask me what my favorite part of traveling in south Florida was, I would say “well all of it”. But I would really have to say it was “exploring everything on, or off the Tamiami Trail”. From Tampa to Miami there is a lot to see, and from Siesta Key through Fort Meyers down to Everglades City. US Hwy 41 TAT is the way to go ending up on 8th street in Miami.
How else would you get to the smallest post office in the United States. Located in Ochopee,Fl. 34141. It may only be a whopping 7′ X 8′ structure, but you have to have a place to mail post cards and bills… right? Also, when you are here you know you are close to seeing the alligators. You need to know what they call Alligator Alley / I-75 is still just the interstate, drive fast get there quick, bypass everything…There is a difference in the road you choose and the milemarkers you use creating your mile marker memories.
Remember when visiting the gators – Es ilegal alimeter o molester lav vida silvestre. Because an alligator does not know the difference between a hand, and a hand out.
