Revised travel plans for 3nights

We have had to cancel 3 nights at motels in Everglades and Key West as a result of the devastating hurricane.

We will still be able to stay at our planned motel at St Augustine and now have 3 nights to stay somewhere on our way to drop car off at Miami airport.

Can anyone suggest a relaxing spot for two oldies to simply relax...I suppose a beach spot would be out of the question? But we are open to any ideas please.

What are your travel dates? Why do you think a spot by the beach is out if the question? I think Miami Beach (esp south beach) would be a great location for 3 nights.

The entire east coast of Florida, other than the Keys, is 100% absolutely fine.

Partly yes, but Miami Beach is recovering fast, the beaches have almost been cleaned up, and should be in great shape by your visit. I recommend south beach for the best beach experience, with many things within walking distance.

South Beach is a far cry from the Everglades. If you want laid back beach, look at something like Jupiter area or Indian Rocks beach on the west coast.

Have just heard from hotel in St Augustine that they can't take us due to storm damage. So now we have to find somewhere for 5 nights before our car drop off in Miami! So, thinking of one extra at Panama City beach, 2 at another hotel St Aug, and 2 at Melbourne. Any thoughts on this plan? Thanks

Vero Beach is beautiful.

About 30 miles south of Melbourne.

Worth looking into as a stop.

I had a one night layover 10/26 on the way to Managua staying at the Marriott by MIA. I switched it to a 2 hour layover. I have never seen Miami for all the travel I have done, but was uncertain what conditions would be like..I know the hotel lost power and I am guessing the local establishments are getting back up to speed.
