    My wife and I am from Niagara, Canada and visiting the Nokomis, Florida area the first two weeks in January. We are staying at a park near Tamiami Trail and 681. I've checked out some charging apps but can't seem to find much in this area! Can anyone tell me where I can charge my Model S some overnights in this area? Many thanks for your help.

    Might consider posting instead in the Florida regional forum ... also the Florida club is very active & should be able to help you find a solution.

    Moxie, welcome to Florida. It seems as though thousands of your fellow Canadian citizens beat you down here this year. I've noticed lots of Canadian license plates already this season. If you are staying in Nokomis, I have no doubt you'll make an occasional trip to the new University Town Center Mall in Sarasota where you'll find more than a dozen Level 2 chargers, including at least four Tesla high power wall chargers (80A). It's about a 25 minute drive to some of the best shopping and restaurants in the area. Surprisingly, these HPWCs are not shown on the Tesla's Destination Charging Map. There is also a Tesla showroom in the mall.

    Don't forget 120 V charging as well. If you stay at your destination a few days, and don't drive much, it can be all you need. It also can mean less time at L2 charging stations. Take a 50' or 100' heavy duty 10 or 12 gauge extension cord and ask to use an outlet.

    Have a great trip.

    I realize it is not overnight, but the Ft Meyers supercharger is about an hour away and has tons of shops and restaurants nearby. Might be a good trip for lunch and a tank full of electrons.

    And also remember if you venture south to visit the Ft Meyers area, you always have the superchargers down there. If you go, be very careful about the exit signs on I 75 south. The exit lanes have changed, and the Nav system will tell you to exit about 1/4 mile too late.

    You mentioned you will be staying "at a park". If you will be camping at an RV Park, there should be 50A outlets there, so you could charge via the UMC and adapter.
