Road trip in the Sunshine State: the best stops
Florida is the perfect family road trip destination and it has so much to offer, from beautiful white beaches to spring and Disney World! The ultimate Florida road trip will take you from one end of the state to the other.
START IN ST. AUGUSTINE
This is a perfect place to start your road trip, it’s at the top of the state and you can immediately start with going to an alligator farm. Florida is known for its alligators so there’s no better place to visit an alligator farm.
You can’t do a road trip to Florida and not go to Orlando. If you travel with your family this will be the main stop because of Disney World. We definitely recommend visiting Magic Kingdom for one day and Epcot another day.
The next stop is Miami. In Miami, you have to go to Little Havana, because Miami has a big Cuban presence and vibe to it this is an amazing place to experience this vibe. Next also visit Wynwood, this is an area of Miami filled with amazing artwork and trendy bars and restaurants. Last but not least is the beach, South Beach has the whitest sand and bluest ocean.
FLORIDA KEYS AND KEY WEST
The road from Miami to Key West will definitely be one to remember. Key Largo s world-famous for its diving and snorkeling. It’s guaranteed that you will see lots of tropical fish and barracuda. Next have a slide of the Florida Key’s tastiest dish, Key Lime Pie at the Key Lime Pie Factory. When you think of the Florida Keys the first thing that comes to mind is sandy beaches, palm trees, and clear blue water. You can find all these at Morada Bay.
SEVEN MILE BRIDGE
This bridge is the longest bridge of the Florida Keys, joining Knights Key in the Middle Keys with Little Duck Key in the Lower Keys. Enjoy the view of the beautifully colored water while driving across this bridge.

This is the southernmost point in the continental United States! From there it’s only 90 miles to Cuba, you should definitely take a picture by this pillar.
Duval street it’s the best-known street of Key West, it’s only a mile long but it’s filled with small bars and old Victorian mansions. Pop in a bar and enjoy many live bands playing Jazz, Salsa, or Cuban music.
