    vacation planning help

    I want to go on vacation maybe the second week in August. I don't have a bunch of money to blow this year so I need to keep it affordable. I was thinking about driving from VA to FL and hitting things along the way. In GA I want to go to the Okafonokee swamp. Any suggestions on sites to see on the way down the road would be great and also maybe stuff to do once I get into FL. I'm thinking a day at Universal maybe...

    I've done Disney and Dolphin Cove and SeaWorld, stuff like that. Now I'm looking for new and exciting.

    Help please? I'm not stuck on FL. If someone has something even cooler then let me know. I like outdoors and the boys like beaches...

    Why wouldn't you share it with all of us?

    I went to FL. Liked Sea World, Gatorland, and Big Cat Rescue the most. But I did fly, so don't have any suggestions what to look at as you drive there.

    P.S. I don't have any plans for vacation what so ever. :( Wish I could go to LV!

    Wow! THAT is nice. What I didn't like about FL (besides it was too hot for me in April already) its very crowded unfortunately. So did you camp there or should drive every day?

    We rented a beach house on stilts from a private owner, cost 1/2 what a hotel anywhere touristy would cost & we saved big bucks not eating out! There are no stores, bars, or restaurants on the island. It was wonderful! Tooled around on a golf cart, I laid on the beach with a book while the hubby used the metal detector (he found a lot of beer caps and .83) and my daughter did lots of shell hunting. First vaca in years that I didn't come home feeling like I needed another vacation to recover!
