I'm in Fort Lauderdale and might be interested.
The middle of the State might be best for landscapes and nature. I've shot quite a bit down south in Miami and of course in the Ft Lauderdale area and free parking is always a hassle. Out west in the Glades your limited in walking round easily. If you go to certain places like Vizcaya in Miami it use to be $12 to get in. Plus commercial properties don't like people on them shooting, even on the sidewalk out front. Maybe do a natural springs tour up north of Orlando with some tubing and barbecue thrown in. It would be pretty central for most everyone.
Since I'll be flipping back and forth on the pages, please forgive any errors.

Sobe, no idea where that is. So many new towns since I last lived in FL.
Hope I got everyone.
I propose a field trip to B&H or Freestyle! Road trip!

Palm Coast for me...North of Daytona, South of St. Augustine.
Lots of great spots close by...
I'm seeing central east coast. Senors Tampa, Ft. Myers and I can figure out the most logical car pool, depending on exact destination.
How about the Everglades? I am not a member yet but I wouldn't mind joining the group...
Well I know of my photo friend in fort myers and John Brady from naples. he posts all the time check his work he is a Clyde Butcher look alike but in color now.
I've gone back in this section and see that the boys in the Jacksonville area have quite the spots they have photographed that are pretty cool. And there are alot from what I can see.
I'm from Ft myers but driving to the St. Augustine area is about 4-5, but if we stay a couple of days that shouldn't be that big of a deal. One of you guys from that area gives us a idea of some of your outing?
Aug? Sept? sound good.
I've been thru most of Florida (except Panhandle); and all areas have much to offer. I do think that NE Florida has alot of variety; and, for those interested in visiting the area, here are some of my recommendations (from South to North):
Southeast Museum of Photography in North Daytona Beach area (across from Speedway). In new building, with some very good exhibits.
Bulow Creek, part of the very scenic Flagler Loop.
Bulow Plantation with its sugar mill.
Princess Place Preserve. Scenic with plenty of wildlife including deer.
Washington Oaks Beautiful gardens, and the seashore has some coquina rock outcroppings.
St Augustine Alot of tourists here but also much to see.
Guana Preserve with miles of hiking trails.
Pumpkin Hill with Salt Marsh and a tabby structure (probably early Broward homestead).
Big Talbot Island with its dynamic coastline.
Ft Clinch and Fernandina. A well preserved brick Fort.
Cumberland Island. Across the St Marys River from Fernandina, the Dungeness ruins & wild horses make it a prime photo opportunity.
Maybe others can post their lists of sights to see; and we can then decide where to have an APUG meeting.
