Our brand new Lincoln Navigator took mere 17 hours to carry our team via the center city of Philadelphia, Baltimore, Washington DC, Richmond all the way to St.Mary River welcome to FL crossing!
The scenery turned to palm trees, and first up was the bustling industrial center and port of Jacksonville. Next we by-passed America’s oldest city St.Augustine, the newly developing (reputedly via Russian money) Palm Coast and the famed host of Daytona 500 speedway, the international Bike Week, as well as the decades of spring breaks: the “World’s Most Famous” Daytona Beach! Finally, 22 hours following our Verrazano Bridge start, we have arrived at the South Florida’s establishment of West Palm Beach…
And there we went: snapping quick shots of the Renaissance tapestry within the walls of The Breakers, while the valet cut circles around its grand welcoming alleys! We then proceeded via Worth Avenue, the Rodeo Drive’s of Beverly Hills twin sister here on the East Coast. And just a block short of Mar A Lago: kaboom, enter with neighborhood ID only, the place is all getting prepped for China president Xi inaugural visit…We had to park beachfront, and share the crystal-clear, turquoise waters with the Coast Guard.
So off we continue on I-95 South, by-passing Boca Raton and Fort Lauderdale, and finally turning to A1A to begin with Hollywood, FL. Immediately following the Hollywood Beach Resort was Hallandale, with its newish beachfront skyscraper multi-million condos. Three Trump towers later, it was on to Bal Harbor, then Aventura, and finally the Mid Beach marinas. Welcome to famed Fountainblue, our first stop in Miami Beach!
Next came the Lincoln Rd pedestrian mall, lasting a good half-hour stroll from Alton Rd to Washington St. And off we went to South Beach…Here we had to disembark, and take in each of the Art Deco restorations beachfront on Ocean Dr from 17th to 5th block. Culminating at the Clevelander, the building that doesn’t allow anyone under 21 to stay, and the neighboring restaurant of the Villa Versace…
By evening, we turn West from the beach onto the 5th street bridge that carries us past the Port of Miami toward Downtown. The NCL Sky is racing alongside! The early evening traffic is a bit too much, as we turn North on I-95 for our final 4-hour sprint toward Orlando’s festive satellite Kissimmee: and that’s where our entire Spring Break debauchery will be accommodated!
