Florida Backroads Travel will help you discover rapidly vanishing Old Florida.  

It can still be found on the back roads of the state, many of them untouched by the rampant development of modern times.

This website will show you hundreds of interesting places to visit and tell you how to get there on the less traveled Florida backroads.

Millions of people visit Florida every year and never see it.  They focus on the major theme parks and beaches and miss the other Florida, the place of serenity, natural wonders and historic sites.

We include listings for historic hotels and inns, along with historic districts.

The site includes hundreds of photos of Old Florida as it is now and many vintage postcards of Florida as it used to be.

The back issue feature of our Florida Heritage Ezine includes reviews of many towns and restaurants..  These archived Ezines go back to 2009.

We focus on scenic roads through tree canopied countryside and historic Florida towns and fishing communities. 

Many of the towns we feature are located on Florida rivers, lakes and on the shores of the Atlantic Ocean and Gulf of Mexico.

We give you information on the history and character of old Florida towns and lesser known tourist attractions like zoos, museums, wineries, beaches and state parks.

We also include schedules of art shows, music festivals and important recurring annual events that  feature the diverse culture of Florida.  We also have contact information for hundreds of community theaters across the state.

Reading fiction, nonfiction and history about the state makes travel a lot more fun;  with this in mind, we have a section on Florida authors along with discussions about their books.  Have a kick reading a book about your destination and enjoy the trip even more.

You will learn how to do Florida without spending a fortune.  You will learn about hundreds of art and music festivals and annual events.

All of this information is supplemented by maps and destinations for fun day trips in Florida.

Florida Backroads Travel will guide you to the real Florida.
