Our Florida getaways are places where you can enjoy quiet, comfortable and historic lodging. We have selected options to help you have an authentic Old Florida experience.
We don't feature the big brand chains on our website. We look for more laid back places that still have the modern conveniences and are close to popular natural attractions.
When you are thinking of staying at a place that is not a member of a big chain, however, you are sometimes nervous about what you are getting into. It may be a perfectly okay place but you don't have an easy way of finding out.
That's what we hope to provide at Florida Backroads Travel: an easy way to find out if you want to stay at one of these lesser known places be they a Florida fish camp, a mom and pop hotel or a boutique inn or bed and breakfast or a home stay club.
These getaways will make you feel like you are a guest in somebody's home, because quite often you literally are. The properties are all small - most are less than 50 rooms - and are typically owned and managed by family members including in many cases the proverbial mom and pop.
