Dade Collier Training and Transition Airport:
This airport has an interesting story (google it) but it is basically a unused runway @ 10,000 ft long! You technically need a permit to use it but my flying club has permits for all its aircraft :)
What I like to do here is fly along the runway in a flare getting a feel for ground effect and drifting the plane from side to side to fine-tune my handling. If there is a crosswind (unfortunately rare) then all the better. At 60 mph that is almost two minutes of practice per run! More than you get on 10 normal landings.
