Chase summer south to Orlando. Early November is rumored to be one of the least busy times of year for all the area amusement parks. You’ll also find that many have their Christmas decorations up by mid-month, so you can use your trip as an excuse to take a cutesy photo for your family holiday card -- you know, if you’re into that sort of thing.
Where to stop:
If you don’t want to get waylaid in Atlanta on your way down to Orlando, stop off for food in Marietta, Georgia. You’ll find an eclectic mix of restaurants, all highly rated -- and delightfully diverse. You can feast on Trini, French, Cuban, Colombian, and Israeli food. Oh, and of course, BBQ.
Florida is so weird, you could probably hop off at any exit and find something worthy of your Snapchat story. But if your road trip lands on a weekend, Waldo Farmer's and Flea Market in Waldo, Florida is worth your time. You’ll see more than 900 vendors shilling curiosities and delectables at this bazaar of weird… so stock up on road snacks while you’re there.
