Scenic Highways and Byways

The Florida Scenic Highways Program was established to showcase the outstanding cultural, historic, archaeological, recreational, natural and scenic resources that can be found along Florida's highway system. The program is intended to promote awareness of Florida's unique resources that are valued by the residents of Florida and the millions of tourists who visit the state each year. The program focuses on community-based support and resource protection while seeking to promote regional economic benefits that may result from corridor designation.
