During the summer months, venturing down to Florida for the multitude of attractions is sure to excite theĀ adventurous enthusiast.

Making Your Way Down South, Pace is Fast on the Overseas Highway

Florida features Disney World, thousands of miles of coastline and natural wonders. If you get the chance, you should venture to the southernmost tip of the state: the Florida Keys. Crystal blue water and beautiful scenery await you, but first to get there, the real adventure starts.

To access the Florida Keys, visitors must use the Overseas Highway from Miami to Key West. Spanning the length of the Florida Keys, this route takes visitors on an absolutely sublime drive along emerald waters and sultry landscapes.

For those looking for another adventurous drive, you should venture to the Atlantic side of the state on the Scenic A1A route. This 72-mile stretch of road takes adventurers through historic St. Augustine and some of America’s most beautiful nature preserves and beaches.
