Fun Travel in Florida
The Florida day trips and one tank trips on Florida Backroads Travel are designed with these goals in mind:
- Keeping you away from congested roads, whether in the country or in the cities.
- Routing you through interesting and scenic areas with old towns, historic buildings and sites, tree canopied roads, forests and farms.
- Showing you areas of Florida that haven't changed as much in the past 50 years as most of the state has.
- Never letting your Florida day trips get too far from restaurants, restrooms and gas stations.
- Keeping you on paved or well maintained roads so that a regular passenger car or motorcycle can make the trip.
- Keeping you off the Interstate Highways as much as possible. They are no place to relax. You will have more fun on the back roads.
I have divided Florida into 8 regions, and each regional web page has a listing of recommended day trips. Each regional web page also has it's own Google Florida state map focused on the region.
