    Cool. Let me know when you're in town. We can meet at a local pub and I'll buy us a beer or two.

    Other than that, places in the Miami area that you should experience are South Beach on Miami Beach, Coconut Grove, which is a section of Miami, is also worth seeing. As far as the Keys, it depends on what you're looking for. There is John Pennecamp National Park, where you can take a glass bottom boat out to see the coral reef. (I've never actually done this myself, since I used to dive them, when I was younger.) No trip to the Keys would be complete without going all the way down to Key West. There is lots to see there.

    Other than that, let me know your interests and I can taylor my recommendations accordingly. ;)

    Hey elrado, totally forgot u from there :D
    I will take u up on the pub thing.

    Glass bottom boat sounds gr8 idea!
    BTW I got friends in Key West, so there is going to be some fun there.
    Im not really into nightclubs or anything. More car racing than anything. I will be stopping in Daytona Beach too, I was there for a show on spring break and it was sooo much fun. I never had sunburn in March before :D When i drove back. We stopped somewhere in indiana, and people were looking at us like crazy cuz it was like 30F and we had shorts and tshirts on.

    Well, seeing as how Toronto is nothing like Miami, and I haven't ever been, I can't offer you much advise. However, if you're in the Orlando area, you could always check out Disney World (or Land, I forget which one).
    This is where my signature would go had my host not been such a Bandwidth Nazi.

    I went to Daytona in 2002 on vacation, go to "Deck Down Under", damn good seafood, just off of one of the roads coming across the inlet, dont remember which though. Also, if your into racing go to Daytona USA, theyve got some awesome simulators and its just a kewl place.

    About Indiana, I wore shorts and a T-Shirt and its only 28F out witha some powder on the ground

    FlaCo's from these parts too, but I've never met up with him. He's closer in age to my two older kids, so TT's the only other thing in common.

    As far as NASCAR, we do have the Homestead Miami Speedway, but I don't see any upcomming events until the end of February.

    I'm sure you're familiar with the 12 Hour Race at Sebring Race Way, but that isn't until March.

    So, I guess a visit to Fairchild Tropical Garden is out of the question, unless you'll be accompanied by a lady who enjoys that kind of thing.

    The webcam I used to check for Miami Beach is not available. Some others along the east coast of Florida, to get you in the mood are: Jupiter Inlet , Florida and Martin County Beach (Jensen Beach). Both beaches are a bit north of Miami though.

    On occasion, we've had neighbors who've been cought up in that. And others I suspected to be trafficing, but, thankfully, they're no longer around.
