Florida Road Trip Ideas From Pensacola to Key West

If you are a resident of Florida, you know what it means to take road trips in Florida. The beautiful roadways, beaches, forests and waterfront towns are familiar sights.

Remember, a road trip to Key West from Tampa is a true road trip. However, a trip to Sarasota from Tampa is considered a day trip in Florida.

It makes a difference if your location is two hours away or an all-day drive. One is a day trip and the other is a road trip.

Preparing for your Road Trip in Florida

Sometimes the anticipation of taking a road trip suspends your common sense. It makes no difference if you are gone a few hours or few days. Some essentials need to be in your car.

If you are heading to outdoor destinations, sunscreen, a hat and water is necessary. Heading to the Everglades, add bug repellent to the list. In some areas of north Florida and the Everglades, you want to make certain you have a full gas tank (or full charge).

If you are not familiar with rural Florida, your preparation should include carefully selecting your route of travel. There are places on the Gulf Coast that dead-end right at water’s edge. While that sounds like a rustic country trip, in the rainy season the roads can flood behind you and you could be stranded for hours.

Florida is a special state with more kinds of terrain than any other state.
