Valentine’s Day Perfect GETAWAY places in Florida!

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. If you are looking and planning what to do in this special-love-festival day here are 7 of the most romantic places – according to Coast Living – for an unforgettable getaway with your loved one. Don’t forget to grab your AmeriDrive car subscription and enjoy of lower prices of the Member’s favorites – BMW 328i, Ford Explorer, Lexus GS350 FSport, and more!

  1. Dry Tortugas, The Florida Keys
    For adventurous couples, a trek out to a remote island this Valnetine’s Day, makes for an exciting, Robinson Crusoe-style getaway. Accessible only by boat or seaplane, the Dry Tortugas are a collection of seven islands managed by the National Park Service and located almost 70 miles west of Key West. Upon arrival, start your adventure at Fort Jefferson on Garden Key, a historic coastal fortress covering 16 acres and surrounded by crystal clear water. Spend the day snorkeling in and around natural coral reefs; then camp out at night and watch the sky bloom with millions of magnificent shining stars. This far-flung voyage isn’t for the faint of heart—you’ll need to bring everything because there are no frills and no facilities. Get there via Dry Tortugas Ferry or  Key West Seaplane Charters.
  2. Cape Florida Lighthouse (El Farito), Key Biscayne
    While Miami is the center of 24/7 action in South Florida, there’s an idyllic island just driving south of South Beach, with your car subscription, that feels miles away from the party scene. Venture over the causeway out to Key Biscayne and you’ll instantly be transported to an island state of mind. At the island’s end, you’ll find the beachfront Cape Florida Lighthouse inside Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Park. Climb the 109 winding steps up the oldest standing structure in Miami-Dade County (dating back to 1846), and at the top, you’ll find panoramic views that will take your breath away. You’ll instantly see why this is a hotspot for marriage proposals. The park is open 365 days a year, but the lighthouse is only open Thursday through Monday at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. So if you plan to get down on one knee, you’ll need to plan ahead this Valentine’s day.
  3. McKee Botanical Garden, Vero Beach
    Featuring one of Florida’s largest collections of water lilies, McKee Botanical Garden is a soothing sanctuary arrayed with majestic orchids and teeming with tens of thousands of tropical plants. With its meandering paths, waterfalls, and restored architectural treasures, it’s no wonder couples choose this 80-acre paradise in Vero Beach for weddings, Valentine’s day, and photo shoots. The garden hosts special events year-round, including the annual Waterlily Celebration every June. The event celebrates the crown jewel of the gardens: a collection of more than 80 species of fragrant water lilies. Drive away with an AmeriDrive car subscription, take a deep breath and inhale the aroma of this magical garden. 
  4. Worth Avenue Clock Tower, Palm Beach
    For couples who want to experience all the glitz and glam that Florida’s Gold Coast has to offer this Valentine’s Day, there’s no better place than Worth Avenue—Palm Beach’s sophisticated style mile. Kick off your indulgent getaway by snapping a photo next to your AmeriDrive car subscription under the iconic clock tower where Worth Avenue intersects with the Atlantic Ocean. Then shop an impressive collection of luxury boutiques like Chanel, Louis Vuitton, and Gucci. Dine at high-end restaurants like Café Boulud Palm Beach and Renato’s. Then retire at the luxurious Brazilian Court, a romantic boutique hotel with a 1920s-era allure. The Mediterranean style resort has hosted the who’s who of celebrities throughout its storied history.
  5. Lovers Key, Fort Mayers Beach (Editor’s favorites)
    When you need to worry about mileage because you have a car with AmeriDirve’s car subscription, no round-up of romantic places in Florida would be complete without Lovers Key State Park. Rumor has it that back in the early 1900s, only adventure-seeking couples made the effort to get out to the collection of isles including Lover’s Key and three other barrier islands off the coast of Bonita Springs: Black Island, Inner, and Long Key. At the turn of the century, the islands were only accessible by boat, but today they are connected by a series of causeways and reachable by car. The best time to visit is during the winter when the seasonal concert series, Songwriters at Sunset, takes place at the beachfront gazebo. Local artists share their original songs and the stories behind them while the sun sinks into the Gulf of Mexico. Bring your own beach chairs and soak up this magical moment on Florida’s southwest coast.
  6. Horse-Drawn Carriage Ride in St. Augustine
    Located on Florida’s Historic Coast, St. Augustine is the nation’s oldest city. What better way to explore the city than by a horse-drawn carriage? Country Carriages will introduce you to centuries-old architecture and rustic cobblestone streets. Of all the romantic getaways in Florida, this one offers you a step back in time and a memory that will last forever.
  7. Kiss Underwater in the Florida Keys
    The 120-mile island chain is home to the continental United States’ only living-coral barrier reef and offers unparalleled diving and snorkeling experiences. In Key Largo, snorkel your way through schools of brightly colored fish at John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park, and visit the Spiegel Grove, a sunken U.S. Navy ship that’s home to its own thriving underwater ecosystem. Go ahead and give her a smooch, the fish won’t tell anyone. It’s one of the most romantic getaways in Florida for this Valentine’s Day.

Plan your special Valentine’s Day while taking a quick look at our Valentine’s Special vehicles for car subscription only at AmeriDrive. Drive worry-free, all the perks included, and enjoy of the love this February 14th.

So here you go, 7 of the most romantic places to go this Valentine’s Day! We hope you enjoy any of these places with your loved one. If you have gone to any of these beautiful places, share your experience in the comments below.

Everything You Need to Know about Auto Subscriptions | AmeriDrive – Car Subscription in Florida

Auto subscriptions, a sort of low-commitment way to get behind the wheel of new or late-model cars, are being touted as a no-hassle alternative for people who just aren’t into long-term relationships.

Azarias Reda, CEO of Carma Car, says the program is ideal for drivers who don’t want to commit to leases, which are typically for 36 months or more but want continual access to late-model cars.

Patel calls the subscription a “hybrid model” that spans the gap between daily rentals and long-term leases. “It’s not by the hour, not by the day,” she said. “It’s for someone looking to have a car for two or three months.”

She cited the example of a 2013 Mini Cooper. On a three-year lease, the company would charge $433 a month (plus insurance), while on a daily rental basis it would cost $1,350 a month. Such a car would be available on subscription for $749, including insurance.

Reda said auto subscriptions are available in two tiers: high-end programs such as the Book by Cadillac and Porsche Passport, which are attractive to people with high disposable income who want to sample a variety of models. Typically, these programs require a one- to two-year commitment.

Alternatively, Carma and other third-party providers, such as AmeriDrive put the emphasis on flexibility and lower cost by offering programs as short as one month and cars that aren’t brand new.

Attitudes toward car ownership model are rapidly changing, Reda said. Technology quickly falls out of date. Warranties expire. Insurance can be a hassle. Depreciation takes its toll.

The ‘Netflix’ model of car ownership is on the rise for drivers who need wheels–without the debt | AmeriDrive

After Tiffany Ford McLemore’s car was destroyed in an accident, the single mother of four needed a new one. Quickly.

Yet she didn’t want to take out another auto loan and so she researched her options. That’s when she stumbled on Flexdrive (proud partner of AmeriDrive), which calls itself Netflix for cars, and is one of several new companies offering vehicles through a subscription.

“I love the flexibility,” Ford McLemore said. She now drives her children to sports and band practice in a 2018 Volkswagen Jetta.

Automakers, dealers, and start-ups now offer car subscriptions as an alternative to the traditional financing model, which increasingly involves going into significant debt. The services typically charge a flat monthly fee that bundles together all the disparate expenses of car ownership, including insurance and maintenance.

“There’s a reason consumers are gravitating toward these services — what’s out there right now isn’t very good,” said Gary Hallgren, president of Arity, a technology start-up founded by Allstate.

The average monthly car loan payment is $533 for new cars and $397 for used vehicles, according to Edmunds, which provides information on the auto industry. The typical person takes nearly six years to pay off their car loan — and nearly a third of the trade in their vehicle before they’ve paid it off and pick up another loan.

People are overwhelmed by modern life and its seemingly infinite choices, said Philip Reed, an automotive writer at personal finance website NerdWallet. “If someone says, ‘Here’s your car. It’s $350, and that pays for everything,’ it’s appealing,” he said.

“The millennial generation grew up in a world of subscriptions, and they don’t feel it’s odd at all to consume an automobile in the same fashion,” people said.
