Wintering in Florida
This time of year, many RV owners make plans to head south during the winter months. The state of Florida has much to offer those looking to travel and enjoy some lovely weather.
Consider a trip exploring the Osmond Scenic Loop and Trail. This scenic byway runs for 36 miles starting just south of Flagler Beach. The area is much more natural than many of the over developed beach areas. The sands along some of the route were once used for those attempting to achieve land speed records. Now the leisurely pace of RV travel is just right. There are a number of state parks to explore in the area. Visitors to the area can stop along the way and rent a canoe to explore some of the inland waterways. For a glimpse of some history, consider visiting the ruins of an early plantation. Another popular destination is the Casements, the former winter home of John D. Rockefeller.
Big Bend Scenic Byway is another route worth exploring. It is named for the distinctive curve of the coastline where the peninsula meets the panhandle. The byway runs for 220 miles through an area that is less touristy than many other areas in Florida. Enjoy the beautiful rivers and quiet beaches along the route. There are also several scenic lighthouses worth visiting. A visit to the town of Apalachicola offers a chance to enjoy some Florida history. The town has 200 historic homes as well as the Natural Bridge Battlefield Historic site for visitors to enjoy.
