Road trips are a great way to learn more about an area and Northeast Florida has a few awesome routes. Most will take you through beautiful and historic scenery, giving you a relaxing way to spend a day in Florida.
Orange Park and Crescent City
Take in a country view for more than 60 miles along U.S. Route 17 between Orange Park and Crescent City. Along the way, view the picturesque St. Johns River, enjoy rolling hills (hard to come by in Florida) and stop at places like the Log Cabin Winery.
The Flagler Beach Area
On the Ormond Scenic Loop & Trail in the Flagler Beach area, take the double loop along scenic roads where you’ll pass by the Atlantic Ocean and Old Dixie Highway. Other highlights include driving past the winter home of John D. Rockefeller, the historic Ormond Beach fire station and sunset views near Granada Boulevard Bridge.
A day’s drive along A1A from Flagler Beach to Fernandina Beach will help you understand what brings many people to Northeast Florida—the beautiful beaches, temperate winter weather and sunny skies.
The Carmelite Monastery in Bunnell offers one of the only drive-through versions of the Stations of the Cross, with bronze sculptures depicting scenes of Christ’s suffering and death.
San Marco Riverside
The open road and Northeast Florida views will have you loving your stay in the area.
