Question Visiting Florida--What should I do?

Ok...here's your chance to give me some opinions of things I should do in Florida. I am coming down to visit with family from 4/18-4/26 and have nothing planned. I was thinking a visit to National Liquidators in Ft. Lauderdale and maybe a visit to Lightning Bay Marine in St. Petersburg. I'll probably spend a day or two at Fort Myers Beach just to hang out. I'm not into the touristy things as I've already done that plenty of times (Disney, Sea World, etc.)

Any boating events? Anyone need a "Gilligan" along for a ride? I make a great bumper b*tch.

Perhaps a couple factory tours? Any suggestions?

I love my family tremendously but need something else to do for the other 6 days I'll be there!

..if you're planning on going from Lauderdale to St. Pete, then to Ft.Myers...you'll be driving for most of those 6 days!!

Default SBI

SBI is in Miami on the 26 and 27th..
I'll be there with my boat, and may just have an extra seat...
SE florida is a boat fan's paradise. We've got a lot of GREAT boat builders here that will be happy to take you on a tour and...try to sell you a new boat.
Pantera
Sonic
Cigarette
Active Thunder
Magnum
and others...
Nat'l liquidators lot is right around the corner from me.. As are about 5000 other marinas with smokin' deals.

Fire me a PM if you want more info... or a boat ride.

Too bad, you'll be leaving on the start of the OPBA Poker Run from St. Pete to Sarasota.

Lightning Bay is cool to check out. They are right next door to my marina and I've seen some trick boats over there!

Default Yeah..

Where is the family get together?
Florida is much bigger than people think.
Ft. Myers is about 125 miles from the Ft. Lauderdale Miami area.

I'll be down in there picking up my boat next week at the AT factory- you should definitely try to take in a tour there as well as the other mfg's. This is the breeding ground of custom offshore performance boats!
Hope to see you on the Mississippi this year!
Jim

Tim, I raced Kissimee and toasted the motor (2nd place)
but I got a ride driving Offshore Addiction F1-52 for the rest of the season. We'll be doing the APBA Circuit
