Florida

Disse naturskjønne Sunshine State-eventyrene garanterer deg en annerledes opplevelse. Forlat motorveiene til fordel for disse semi-skjulte perlene av noen småveier som gir deg en helt annen opplevelse! . Floridas svingete småveier, skyggefulle baldakinveier og strandpromenader er designet for å streife rundt.
Her er åtte flotte ruter, – prøv de da vel!

1.Miami to Key West

This subtropical trip from Miami South Beach unlocks Florida Keys on County Road 905, an exciting road through mangroves. It connects to USA 1 and the sad life of Florida, with diving at the John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park (MM 102.5), an outdoor party on Lorelei (MM 82), swimming with dolphins (MM 59), Seven Mile Bridge MM 47 , and reaches the final end of the road on MM 0 in exciting Key West.

2. Pensacola til Panama City Beach

South of the historic center of Pensacola, this journey starts with a 15-mile trip on State Road 399 which runs through the Gulf Islands National Seashore. Back on Highway 98 through Fort Walton Beach and Destin. Lunch at Okaloosa Pier before continuing down to Highway 30A to find your sanctuary at Grayton Beach State Park. Having bathed in beautiful and tranquil WaterColor and Seaside, you can enjoy the fine-grained and white sands of Panama City Beach.

3. St. Augustine til Daytona Beach

On a 50-mile drive between America’s oldest city and the car’s home, the extraordinary A1A offers almost uninterrupted views of the Atlantic Ocean, inviting beaches and views of historic sites such as Fort Matanzas and Marineland Dolphin Adventure. Take time to dine and fish at Flagler Beach Pier before continuing on to Ormond Beach.

4. Tallahassee til DeFuniak Springs

Just north of Interstate 10, rural Highway 90 worlds work away. Soul of the South feels properly on the gently winding road that moves past the capital of Tallahassee state through such antebellum cities as Quincy, Chattahoochee, Marianna and Chipley. Explore caves and natural springs, take a round around the perfect circular Lake DeFuniak and bowl for the end of the tour at the Chautauqua Winery.

5. Arcadia to Okeechobee to Sanibel-Captiva

Not every trip needs a reason, although a day-long, 200-mile trip is enough to ride east from Arcadia to Lake Okeechobee. Drive along the eastern shore of the Old Highway 441 and discover such historic old Florida cities as Pahokee, Belle Glade and Clewiston. Remove and refreshing lonely roads boomerang west to allow time to catch the sunset from the islands of Sanibel and Captiva.

6. Daytona Beach til Mount Dora

Leave the motorway noise in Daytona for Highway 40 and the quiet towns of Barberville and Astor and a break on the banks of St. John’s River. Enter the slumbering CR 445 past the lineal Florida pines before a little splash in Alexander Springs. The last miles cut through the Ocala National Forest, Altoona and Umatilla, where you can “test-taste” Mason Jar (a restaurant). Then you continue to a stop in the little New England-like town of Mount Dora.

7. Apalachicola til Tallahassee

From the little oyster village, which houses many artists, take a detour along the waters edge of St. George Island before returning to “fast drive” on Highway 98. Follow the coast of the Gulf of Mexico, take a quick ride into the woods and cool down on the TnT Hide-a-Way in the crystal clear Wakulla River. Later, enjoy a ginger yip at historic Wakulla Springs Lodge before ending your trip in Tallahassee.

8. Eustis to Palatka

Highway 19, Central Florida’s less used road, leads from the southern border of Ocala National Forest north through exciting seclusion. Take off the fururike road to explore natural springs, hiking trails and the clear waters of Salt Springs. To reach the wide St. Johns River should be celebrated with a burger at Angel’s Diner, Florida’s oldest eatery.
