The 2015 AAU Taekwondo National Championships will be hosted from June 29th to July 4th in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. Sparring is in the first half of the week and forms in the second half. It will take about 18 hours nonstop by car or 3 hours by air. If we are going, we’d plan a vacation around it.
Estimated Nonstop Gas Costs: $500
Estimated Hotel Costs: 2 days of travel x 2 (round trip) = 4 days, + 3 days at the venue site = 7 days bare minimum. Sightseeing will take 3 or 4 days, which means in total about 10 or 11 days. We will need to stay at hotels that have swimming pools when heading there. It doesn’t matter that much on the way back.
Sightseeing on the Return Trip:
- Parkersburg, WV
- Charlotte, NC
- Rock Hill, SC
- Columbia, SC
- Hilton Head Island, SC
- Savannah, GA
- Brunswick, GA
- Vogel State Park, GA
- Atlanta, GA to see a couple of friends
- Fernandina Beach, FL
- Keys, FL
- Miami, FL
However, we’ve decided not to go. But we might still travel this route to see these places someday.
