Really not that far, depending on where you are in FL. From Jacksonville (where I reside), it's about a 3 hour drive.
EDIT: Nevermind, it's about 5 hours to Alpharetta, near Atlanta, as previously stated, sorry about that.
Driving from Tampa, I did it for Muse...About an 8 hour drive. Prob tack on a half hour to an our extra since it is North of ATL. It will be worth it for sure
