From ocean views to forests and swamps, historical communities, and even a mountain or two, here are some of the most scenic drives in Florida you’ve got to place on your family travel bucket list.
You’ll get to pass through colorful beach towns, some of the best shores on the entire state, old Spanish forts dating back to the colonial era, as well as plenty of opportunities to enjoy recreational activities.
This drive begins in Orlando and takes you through lush state parks where you’ll find hiking trails so green you’ll feel as though you’re walking inside the Amazonas!
The road trip itself can take just under four hours if you don’t make any stops, but we recommend taking a few days to complete it in order to fully enjoy the scenery all over.
As you drive, you’ll get to see the world’s smallest post office, several boardwalks, and picnic areas perfect for lunch.
This gorgeous byway will have you driving through networks of smaller scenic roads between Silver Springs and Ormond Beach, including SR 40 which cuts right through Ocala National Forest.
