FLORIDA DAY TRIPS & SCENIC DRIVES
Fun, Culture & Heritage Off the Beaten Path

You will discover the most pleasant and relaxing way to travel in Florida is on the back roads. This website shows you everything you need to know about the roads less traveled.

Millions of people visit Florida every year and never see it. Creeping along on the Interstates or Turnpike, their scenic view is limited to billboards on both sides promoting theme parks, adult stores, souvenirs, and smiling personal injury lawyers.

Every interchange seems to have the same gas stations, chain restaurants, and tourist traps.  It's boring to say the least. 

Old Florida - Off the Beaten Path

These travelers miss the other Florida: the serene place of natural wonders, historic sites, and towns that have escaped the frantic growth.  That takes a bit more time and a guide such as Florida Backroads Travel.

This website guides you along the less traveled roads that were here before the super highways.  There are hundred of maps with scenic drives in all geographical regions of the state.

You will discover small towns and their histories,  festivals, wineries, historic sites, beaches, parks, restaurants and authentic old Florida lodging places.

The links in the left navigation column will get you started on your Florida adventures.  Have fun in the Old Florida you will discover on the roads less traveled.
