The Ultimate Central Florida Road Trip Is Right Here And It’s A Blast

Millions of people flock to the middle of The Sunshine State each year, but many don’t realize the incredible amount of things to do in central Florida. The center of our state has some of the best attractions Florida has to offer. Our state is pretty large, so this trip will take about 9-10 hours of driving time, and of course much longer if you stop at all of the attractions and explore. 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. There are 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 reasonably-priced 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:

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
