Florida is one of the few states in America that offers many exhilarating scenic views for road tourists. If you plan to witness the wonders of the Sunshine State while in transit, be sure to read on below for some of the best routes to follow. Depending on your travel direction, you will surely find the quick rundown of attractive sites below very helpful if you do not know where to start.
From Jacksonville to St. Augustine
If you want to smell the Atlantic air, leave Jacksonville north through I-95 to A1A. This will bring you Fernandina Beach. This beautiful city will let you experience the beauty of the Atlantic all the way.
Another good place to stop by is Fort Clinch State Park. This is a favorite camping ground for tourists and locals alike.
Going south on A1A will bring you to Amelia Island, where you will find many inexpensive motels along the road. There are also few excellent hotels such as the Amelia Island Plantation or the Ritz-Carlton Hotel. The Amelia Island Beach is a favorite destination spot for many tourists in Florida.
From St. Augustine to Daytona Beach
Being one of the oldest cities in the US, St. Augustine offers many terrific sites to visit and is, in fact, a favorite vacation destination for many Americans. Some of the famous spots in this old city include the Castillo de San Marcos National Monument, Lightner Museum, the Spanish Quarter, and the Lighthouse Museum of St. Augustine. If part of the trip includes gastronomy destinations, you will also find St. Augustine with lots of good restaurants.
There are also several picturesque state parks and fine beaches as you continue south to Daytona.
From Titusville to Melbourne
Beyond Daytona also lies another great city, Titusville. This historic city is best known for the iconic Kennedy Space Center and Canaveral National Seashore. Both of these sites can be very time consuming so you will want to spend a day in here alone to enjoy.
Going to Melbourne means visiting the Brevard Zoo and the Florida Tech botanical garden where you will find rare and exotic palms. You can also spend the night either in Wickam Park or Long Point. These places are great camping sites in the area.
From Miami to Naples through I-75
One of the liveliest places on earth, Miami is the best way to start your exploration of the Everglades National Park, the only subtropical park in North America. Going to Naples from Miami along US41 is both fun and adventure as you pass by several native Indian reservations and a couple of interesting parks.
These sites mentioned are just some of the many amazing places to drop in Florida. Since the state guarantees almost yearlong sunshine, you can come anytime without considering the time of the year.
