Florida Scenic Highway Program
Welcome to the Florida Scenic Highways Program web site, where you’ll find all the information needed for planning an enhanced road trip experience. Our designated highways are recognized for their unique ability to provide a window – like your car window – into Florida’s heritage, beauty and other special historic, cultural, scenic, archeological, recreational and natural qualities.

- What is the Florida Scenic Highways Program?
A: It’s a program designed to enhance travelers’ experience. This, in turn, provides subsequent benefits to the community. The designated scenic highways promote a heightened awareness of the state’s exceptional resources and unique history through educational and visual experiences.
- Who can apply?
A: Any citizen, group of citizens or local government can propose a corridor for designation under the Florida Scenic Highways Program. While essentially anyone can participate, the Program does require that all applications be submitted through a Corridor Advocacy Group, which serves as the applicant.
- Can designation as a Florida Scenic Highway preclude widening?
A: No. Designation as a Florida Scenic Highway does not limit the Department’s ability to complete improvements to a roadway corridor.
