Florida Backroads Travel features selected sponsored content on some of its pages.  We value our credibility with our site visitors and are very selective about who we accept as sponsors.

Sponsored content is typically a brief article about an establishment or event that would be interesting to our visitors.  In the case of lodging places, we inspect and stay in the place before writing about it.  If the sponsor is a restaurant, we eat there, and if a winery we pay the establishment a visit and sip some wine.  The article is always followed by a link to the content sponsor.

The pages we currently create sponsored content for are those under the navigational headings of Getaways:  Fish Camps, Small Inns, Tourist Attractions, Florida Restaurants, Historic Hotels, Florida Wineries, and Florida Timeshares. 

The rate for sponsored content is determined on a case by case basis.

Here is an example of sponsored content for one of our lodging advertisers.

1111 Riverside Drive SE
P.O. Box 828
Steinhatchee, Florida 32359

This inn is an all suites motel.  Each suite opens into a sitting area with couch.  All units have a private bathroom, and a shared terrace facing the swimming pool and the Steinhatchee River.  Each suite has a flat screen television. Although the inn is an older place, it is super clean and well maintained.  They welcome dogs under 35 pounds.

Steinhatchee River Inn

Steinhatchee is a quaint village surrounded by nature preserves and is near a scenic waterfall on the river.  It is a very popular little place during scalloping season (June - September) and is a popular "off the beaten path" destination all year round.  The Steinhatchee River flows past the inn to the nearby Gulf of Mexico.  It is truly a place where you can experience "Old Florida".  

There are several authentic hometown restaurants in Steinhatchee, many of them within a short walk of the Steinhatchee River Inn.  These restaurants include Fiddlers, Roy's, Kathy's Crabs and Bridge End Cafe.  Needless to say, fresh seafood is easy to find in this authentic fishing village.

Your suite is furnished with a microwave, mini fridge, coffee maker, cable television, and limited WiFi.  Suites with kitchenettes also have a full size refrigerator and freezer, a stove with oven, pots, pans, skillets, plates, cups, utensils and everything you need including a kitchen sink.  The suites with a kitchenette are attractive to guests that would rather grill outside or eat at home.

The Steinhatchee River Inn is a great base from which to explore Steinhatchee and the surrounding area.
