Has anyone been to the Destin / South Walton area before?

What's the name of the hotel there ?

Florida is my favorite place. I always feel at home when I visit. Hoping to move there in a couple of years 😍

Lisa Page we NEED to explore the Florida keys😍

Daniel Sullivan Liv Griffiths let’s ditch Disney and do this

Sugarloaf key ... Few day ago ... Florida is amazing if you dont follow mass tourist like miami or orlando ... We had fantastic trip north to south vy the west coast ending in the lovely key west

Been there done that! I used to live in the Fl Keys and that overseas Highway is quite impressive! I highly recommend it! You will not be bored on this drive!🌷💗💦👙🕶️🌴🐊

Did this trip in February whilst staying in Fort Lauderdale!! Took 2 hours to drive from the start down to Key West. Watched the sunset. Fantastic. Wish we could have stayed but what they charge for accommodation is ridiculous!! (Even air bnb).

Stayed in key west parked the car at the hotel rented a counch buggy for the week and zipped all over the island and sommuch you can do if your with the right person fun in the sun everyday and beautiful sunsets outside dinning and bars glass bottom boats snorkling shops and the flowers are huge and colorful love it

We took this drive one time. I had illusions that it would be a relaxing, wonderful drive. Turned out to be Bike week with loud motorcycles everywhere and bumper to bumper traffic all the way to Key West. 3 fatalities along the way. Just fly...don't drive.

And i moved from that to ohio! It snowed today! Smh. I need to be back in florida. 10 years in ohio is too long. I miss my hometown

Just did that drive last year before the hurricane. So glad we did and would do it again if we make it back down there

You post some amazing pics of FL Jason. Sadly, all I have in my mind are visions of LivePD scenes of the not so pretty places!! (Pasco County)

Was there this last January. Took motorcycle from Florida city to Key West. Stayed over night and explored the city. Then back to alligator alley over to Sanibel

We used to do this drive all the time when we lived in Miami! Sometimes all the way to Key West and back for just a day trip lol. Miss it!

We will be there soon! Is the water really that blue ? ❤️ We are renting a brand new Jeep Wrangler convertible. Bucket list with our son ❤️

We loved visiting the keys for the first time last month. Actually my fist time to Florida. Ready to come back, it snowed in Spokane today

Cathy Rossi Romina M. When are we going back with the kids? They’ll for sure end up overboard in minutesss...😂

I need this now! Ohio weather is horrible right now

Jonathan Dominguez Tricia Dominguez just drop me off in the middle with water wings and a bottle of vodka. Oh, and a floatie for my vodka. Thanks!

Just did this trip on my Harley to Key West!! It was awesome!!

Drove it just once. Got woken up by the front desk telling us we had been evacuated from Hurricane Wilma.

I drove from Miami to the end of the Keys it was amazing!!!

Is the water really that blue?

List of things that is bad about it: 1. It's over 8000miles from home..

Not happy with this!!

The problem with this in Florida is that as soon as you get all bundled up in warm clothes, and get the heater working again (sometimes you haven't even turned it on in 3 years!), then suddenly normal weather returns in the middle of the day, and you are miserable in heavy clothes!

It’s 31 and snowing here in Indiana currently...😂

The longer without that stinkin heat, the better!

I like it, It will get hot soon anough.

The cold never bothered me anyway...

Better cool than hot!!

No I don't like being cold!!!!

I.am .used to the cold weather. ..from .California..lol....

Just when I put all my winter clothes away, plus the fireplace tools. But that’s ok, everyday that it isn’t in the upper 90’s, I’m happy.

We do need another 24/36 hour winter. We are one short for the year.😂😂😂

Yara se prepare pra sua volta !!😏⛄️ winter is back !! What ?????

These northern cold fronts that come to far south are getting old. Let’s get back to the 80’s!!🌞🌴

Between temperature and wind, is was brutal walking this morning in Summerfield ⛄️☃️

Karla e Leonardo ainda bem que vcs foram pras Keys antes!!🍀⛄️👀

When 'o when can I plant my spring flowers?!?

And I already washed my jacket and put it away:)

Good sleeping weather and the cold keeps the frogs and lizards away!

Yea, but, that's Indiana. We are talking about florida.
