    In a couple of months, there'll hopefully be the choice between Dania Beach and Miami Beach! (BTW, Miami Beach is a lot more fun!! )

    Hi Nigel,

    True, but the Miami Beach location is on an island, whereas the Dania Beach location is near the intersections of several highways.

    Hi Nigel,

    Okay, you've pursuaded me. We need to convince Tesla to install Superchargers at BOTH locations!

    I expect all Telsa stores will have supercharging capabilities.

    Coming off Alligator Alley from the west, I'd suggest Sawgrass Mills mall. It's only a couple of miles from the end of the Alley, and people can spend all day shopping there. In fact, Sawgrass is the 2nd most visited tourist attraction in Florida after Disney World. For someone low on battery, those 20 miles or so can make a big difference and avoid range anxiety.

    Similarly, I'd like to see a charger at that outlet mall right off I-75 on the Naples side.

    Hi Arnold,

    Excellent information.

    Do you mean this one?

    Naples Outlet Center

    You guys read my mind. I agree with Arnold and Larry. Supercharger locations east and west of Alligator Alley. Naples, near the highway is great, and you're right, Tesla will have supercharger locations at all their stores. We just need to make sure that the superchargers are accessible when the store is closed, right?

    sawgrass would be a logical location for a supercharger. But I'd also like to see decent chargers at places like national parks and wildlife refuges - ideal places where the car will be idle for a period of time and where there is a pleasant couple of hours of diversion - places like the tip of the Everglades at Flamingo or Loxahatchee (Arthur Marshall NWF) which is near Delray Beach. anyone with ideas on how to influence national parks and other reserved locations?

    Larry, that's a good start for Tesla's supercharging network but I think there could be three stations on the Alligator Alley. Here are my considerations: The first stop after the toll plaza on the East entrance of the Alley, the second station would be the stop Larry is talking about and my last consideration would be the last stop prior to the western Toll plaza exit of the Alley.

    Actually, I was thinking about this one:

    http://www.miromaroutlets.com/

    Right off of I-75 and only a few miles from the Alley. But I think all malls should have superchargers, so no need to choose between them!
