John, lots of sailing opportunities around that area. As Randy mentioned, the Bahamas are not very far distant, and so, for more extended trips, you can't beat it.

That said, I'm not a big fan of Florida. I bought my boat down there and ran aground on the ICW twice in as many times out. When I wasn't running aground, I was getting hammered by squalls and electrical storms. Thank God I never spent much of hurricane season down there!

In the end, I was glad to leave! But, I'm sure that much fine crusing is to be had going down the Keys (really, the further South you get the better) Just keep in mind that it can get shallow (like, really shallow), and, be prepared for unpredictable weather.

Cheers!
