State Road 70 stretches from the Gulf of Mexico to the Atlantic Ocean.
It's a great drive through Old Florida. You will see millions of acres of cattle land and citrus groves. It's the country Patrick Smith wrote about in "A Land Remembered".
Florida State Road 70 from Coast to Coast
Enjoy stopping at these 5 Old Florida towns as you make the trip from coast to coast. I've arranged them as if you are starting on the Gulf of Mexico side of Florida and driving east to the Atlantic Ocean.
