SCENIC RIDES While Florida’s attractions make it a great vacation destination, for us at MotorcycleFlorida.com it’s a starting point for some remarkable motorcycle rides. Understand that the directions we provide are those we have found to be scenic and are not necessarily the fastest or shortest distance between two points. These rides are for cruising and for stopping wherever and whenever you want to experience places you find captivating.
3 HOURS PLUS Our choices for longer rides are those that take 3 hours or more of actual riding, not counting any stops you make along the way. For example, on the Naples to Miami Beach ride you may want to stop in the Everglades and take an airboat tour of the area. There is much to see and do in the State of Florida and our goal is to help you in coming across meaningful encounters.
TAKE IT EASY Plan on taking your time when you’re away from the Interstate Highways and allow yourself to enjoy pristine soft sand beaches and small town sleepy quirkiness that only local roads and highways can offer. Shorter rides afford you the time to stop and experience Florida’s natural beauty as well as the attention-grabbing flare of its eclectic mix of towns and cities.
BEACHES With 825 miles of stunning beaches you don’t need to travel far within the state to get your toes in the sand. Some of the best beaches to be found anywhere line Florida’s coast. From the panhandle to Naples the Gulf of Mexico laps gently at the shore. From Jacksonville to Miami and on to Key West you’ll find soft sand beaches made for relaxation.
HISTORIC STATE Florida’s rich history unfolds before you while you ride leisurely through horse country as you near Ocala on US301 or cruise through citrus groves and past endless fields of sugar cane along US27 on the way to Miami. Take an airboat ride in the Everglades and witness alligators and other species in the wild.
