Just spent our first winter in Florida and left for home on March 31. Traffic leaving Florida on I-75 was extremely heavy and we were wondering if this was because we left on the last day of the month? If so, we may change our plan next year. Does anyone have more experience in this area that they can share?
Ed.: Change your plan for next year. The end of February, but especially the end of March and April are when hundreds of thousands of snowbirds are heading north, back to Canada and to their homes in the northern United States. Many rent by the month and these rentals usually run from the first of the month to the end of the month and, when finished, they all head home at the same time. I would leave three or four days after the end of any month, if that is convenient for you.
