OLD FLORIDA TOWNS ON US-301 FROM GEORGIA TO SARASOTA
US-301 is a spur of US-1 that branches off in Callahan west of Jacksonville and runs 250 miles down the center of Florida to the Bradenton-Sarasota area.
The highway travels through many historic and interesting small towns that you would miss if you stayed on the interstate highways.
It runs through a few urbanized areas, but for most of its distance it will show you a lot of small towns, farmlands, and forests.

September is starting to cool down in Florida, but many of us stay home in our air conditioned homes during the pandemic. Some heroic people go to their jobs every day and we appreciate them. Some restaurants are open with curbside service only or limited seating. Everybody is doing their best. The weather is still too hot and humid,
so we enjoy our time at home by reading and getting caught up on chores. Not many restaurants are completely open, but some are. Most of our snowbirds are still up north, but some are staying in their Florida homes during the pandemic. Restaurants are beginning to open with new recommended health procedures in place. Some also offer take out or delivery services.
