Motorhome Rental in Fort Lauderdale, Florida
Campervan Hire and RV rental in Fort Lauderdale
Fort Lauderdale has built a reputation on the backs of beer-swigging college students on Spring Breaks. But Caribbean-bound holidaymakers know Fort Lauderdale as the martini-sipping destination in Florida with a hundred marinas. After all, with its extensive canal systems, it is known as the ‘Venice of America.’ If you do not intend to hop on a yacht or cruise ship in Port Everglades, consider a land tour of the Sunshine State instead with a motorhome rental in Fort Lauderdale.
The Florida Keys by RV Rental
With your RV rental in Fort Lauderdale, start your journey by driving south, passing Miami and carrying on down to the Everglades to experience one of the world’s Wetland of International Importance. If you are lucky, you may even catch a glimpse of the elusive Florida panther, the iconic American crocodile, and the adorable West Indian manatee, plus almost 350 species of birds.
Continuing to travel south, drive through the Florida Keys where the true value of your Fort Lauderdale campervan hire will become apparent. This is a 120-mile stretch of road that links many islands, known as keys, with a network of bridges ending at probably the most famous of the Keys, Key West. Each island seems to have its own unique atmosphere; with your Fort Lauderdale Motorhome rental you will be able to spend time at the one that best suits your mood at the moment.
Drive to Disney World and Universal Studios
When you are ready to leave the Keys, head back north in your Fort Lauderdale motorhome hire and turn inland to Orlando. Once in Orlando you can decide whether you want to visit the Universal Orlando Resort or Walt Disney World, perhaps even both before you continue northeast to Daytona Beach.
About 15 minutes of driving your RV rental in Fort Lauderdale and before you reach Daytona Beach, you can stop off at the reptile Discovery centre in Deland where, apart from being one of the few places in the world where you can witness venom extraction, you can also watch various specimens on exhibit which include 14-foot pythons, and 12-foot cobras plus, turtles, alligators and iguanas.
Daytona Speedway and Kennedy Space Centre
At the Daytona Beach, spend some time at The Daytona International Speedway, home to the Daytona 500. Here you can get views of the 31° curves and check your driving skills in the video arcade before experiencing the Daytona Boardwalk with is mixture of Mardi Gras and adventure.
Take the road down the east coast to return your campervan hire in Fort Lauderdale but ensure that you leave enough time to visit the Kennedy Space Centre. Apart from the Rocket Garden and bus tours around the launch facilities, the centre also sells tickets for upcoming launches. But remember, even with a ticket, the closest you will be allowed to the launch site is four miles due to safety regulations. Even then, four miles is close enough to experience, at least vicariously, the thrill of the ride.
