These are some of the best motorcycle roads in Florida. While not exactly known for a vast array of twisties or elevation changes, "The Sunshine State" is unique in that it has one thing most states don't have - warm winter riding! Discover some hidden gems with these routes that offer curves and hills among Florida's many state parks, as well as its coastal roads with vast, ocean views.
Tamiami Trail to Everglades
Route 41, 997, 9336 (159 miles)
Tamiami Trail the oldest east-west highway across Florida's southern tip, before "Alligator Alley", Interstate 75, was built. Cross the vast sweeps of grassy savana, cypresses and mangroves. While there aren't necessarily any sweeping curves or exciting elevation changes, motorcycle riders will still relax and enjoy the scenery and wildlife.
This quiet north/south route is between Palatka and Altoona, and takes you through Ocala National Forest and alongside Lake George. While most of this route is a straight-shot, there many spots to stretch the legs and venture some of the nearby trails throughout the forest. Enjoy the scenery of the old Florida horse farms and wetlands.
Miami to Key West
Route 1 (155 miles)
While it could be debated how "scenic" most of this road is, one thing is certain - there's plenty of sunshine and ocean views along this route. Along the way to down to the Southernmost Point of the Continental Unites States, there are State parks to visit, quaint seaside towns and various unique shops all along the route.
Lake Apopka Loop
Routes 48, 561, 455, 438, 429 (47 miles)
Just northwest of Orlando is Lake Apopka. There's some great scenery to take in along the way, with lots of nice turns and elevation changes (for Florida), as you ride through pastures and pine forests. Be sure to check out the nearby Green Mountain observation deck.
Hastings to Fruit Cove
Route 13 (42 miles)
This scenic road takes you along the St Johns River, and offers great views of the river as well as a a few twists and curves through shaded roads from the abundance of oaks and spanish moss trees along this route. There are several parks to stop along the way as well.
