We are going to Universal Orlando for four days in December. We have an additional two days that we would like to spend at a beach. I have been to the gulf coast several times, but never to the Atlantic side. We were thinking about taking the 4-5 hour drive to Ft. Lauderdale or Miami Beach.
1. Is it worth driving that far or is there somewhere nicer closer to Orlando?
2. Which beach is nicer Ft. Lauderdale or Miami Beach?
Thanks a lot!
