Traveling to the beach from Orlando.

Honda S2000 at Sunset HillSo I just got a Honda S2000. It has exceeded my every expectation and then some. So I decided to take a trip to the beach with my old lady. I wanted to really get a chance to see how the S does on a long drive. I wanted to see if it would be considered a comfortable ride and offer all the necessary room needed to move around with another passenger in the car as well. I brought my girl and we hit the road. We left Orlando heading down i4. There were a ton of ricers that thought I just wanted to try and "race" them... They were wrong, I am not a 16 year old fan boy who dreams of being in "The Fast and Fictitious". The truth was, I loved this car and it was so much more of a car to drive then all my other cars. It handled better than my AWD Evo, It accelerated better than my boosted 240sx and it slid better than my N/A 350z. This car was good! It kept pushing back even when I pushed as hard as I could. This car just wouldn't give in, it was relentless and its 240 horsepower 4 cylinder engine was graciously paired with a 9,000 rpm redline. This combination was a match made in heaven. I loved the car and it loved me back, so it seemed. Another great thing about the car is the fact that it was a convertible, meaning I can let the top down whenever I so desire. You can bet I put the top down too! I rode down the interstate enjoying a nice car that had a lot of power on tap. I revved it all the way to 9k over and over again and I just couldn't get enough of it. Sure it only had about 210 hp at the wheels, but it felt so powerful even compared to my 400 wheel horsepower Evo. I can rave all day about this car, but until you drive it for yourself, you just won't understand.
Now driving to the beach we decided to hit up Cocoa Beach. It is a great beach just about an hour or so drive from Orlando. It has some awesome scenery and great waves and fishing areas too. So we headed out and in about an hour we were there. It really is amazing how many different things that Orlando has to offer. You can go to an array of theme parks in the Orlando area, or just drive a bit and you will be at the wonderful ocean! It just doesn't get any better than that! Orlando really is a great city that has a lot to offer. Well at the beach it's safe to say that I got my tan on and soaked in the great Florida sun and had a blast too. We went skim boarding on the beach and had a great time! I cannot wait to go back and have some more fun. My girl loved it and so did I. We plan to again soon, once we both have another day off together.
