The Ultimate Central Florida Road Trip Is Right Here – And You’ll Want To Do It

Millions of people flock to Central Florida each year, and then never leave Disney property the entire time they’re here. The middle of our state has some of the best attractions Florida has to offer, so all these folks are really missing out. (Some of these places might not technically be in Central Florida, but that’s the simplest way to describe the trip.)

Our state is pretty large, so this trip will take about 9-10 hours of driving, and of course much longer if you stop at all of the attractions. It’s up to you how many of the attractions you want to visit and how long you want to stay at each one, which will determine how many days the trip will take. I’ve included several must-sees (marked with a purple dot), as well as several bonus attractions (marked with a pink diamond), so you can customize your road trip to your own interests. There are plenty of cities along the route that should have reasonable hotels, but you can always find more state parks (that offer camping or cabins) along the way to save money.

Now for an outline of our trip. We’ll start from De Leon Springs State Park and head west around this circle:

Well, there you have it, folks. This trip should provide you with plenty of incredible experiences and great stories to last a lifetime. I can’t wait it to try it out, and I hope you will, too.

How many of these places have you visited? What stops would you add to this trip? What’s your favorite Florida road trip? Please share your comments with us below!
