We are visiting Sand Key in July/August for a month and want to see some of Florida other than Orlando and the beach as we usually do. I noticed the Edison/Ford winter estates as a recommendation on another forum and have looked at the website, it looks such an interesting visit.
My question is, has anyone visited here, what's it like, and does anyone have any tips. Would it be a good plan to go here for most of the day and call back at Fort Desoto for sunset. Or is that not practical at all? I'm guessing the travel time is around 2 hours from Sand Key.
