Florida Celebrates Second Annual State Scenic Highways Day
Orlando, Fla. – On March 26, select roads across the state will recognize Florida Scenic Highways Day – a date created to celebrate Florida’s 26 state designated highway routes.
In addition to regularly scheduled recreational opportunities, some byways will set up welcome center events and hold other special events, festivals and tours.
As part of the Florida Scenic Highways Program, roads are selected for their archeological, cultural, historic, natural, recreational and/or scenic qualities. From the Panhandle to the southern tip of the state, Florida is home to a variety of these routes, including the Florida Keys Scenic Highway, which was recognized by Reader’s Digest in 2005 as one of its “Most Scenic Drives in America.”
Trips along Florida’s Scenic Highways can range from a two-hour drive along the A1A Scenic & Historic Coastal Byway to a long weekend of camping and exploring along the Indian River Lagoon Scenic Highway.
