    You'll have no problem finding a place under $100 a night.
    I've been doing Airbnb lately. Absolutely love it.

    We've used that too. It used to cater more to a room somewhere, but has expanded to be more like VRBO and Homeaway now.

    They are in the Keys for sure. I've seen iguanas the size of a dog down there.

    And I'm not talking Chihuahua, more like a good sized basset hound.

    Unfortunately in March, you have to get below the frost line pretty well. Ft Myers is about as far north you can go to be safe. And that is haul if you drive.

    A good friend lives in Ft. Myers, so it's in play. I just hate the thought of driving that far in one trip & I'd prefer not dividing up the drive.

    Something's going to have to give.

    Break the drive up and go farther south.

    Going to South Florida is never a bad idea.
