Cedar Key FL is worth an overnight stop. Halfway between Macon and Atlanta on I-75 is High Falls State Park. Nice overnight. St Augustine FL is fun. Chattanooga TN has Ruby Falls and Rock City. We head to FL on the 24th leaving from Reno NV. Will stay in Orange City.

In the Santa Rosa Beach area, be sure to get breakfast at the Donut Hole. Take a ride down Route 30A and see the communities along the way. It's like driving from Key West to Nantucket. The panhandle is a different Florida for sure.

I'm semi local to Cedar Key and it is a short block of restaurants and a few other buildings. Not worth a 80 mile round trip off Hwy 18 in my opinion. They do have a fishing pier and boat ramp.

While at Salt Springs, there is a small marina where you can rent a boat for a reasonable price and explore the run down to the lake. Also, I'd recommend going over to Juniper Springs ( short drive from Salt Springs) and rent a canoe and do the run down the creek. It's 7 miles and a very scenic paddle.
Good luck getting in Ft. DeSoto.... they do have walk ups so maybe you;ll be lucky-- but you should have a plan "B" .
At Bahia Honda, go out to Looe Key to dive/snorkel. Sometime during your stay, head over to No Name Pub ( at No Name Key, off Big Pine Key) for pizza. Looe Key Dive Center also has a new,huge tiki hut with some pretty good happy hour specials. You should head to Key West for a day trip. Lots to do there..... if you like good live music, go to the Green Parrot. Great Happy Hour at the Boat House- 1/2 price small plates.

We are at Salt Springs Rec Area now. The campground is fully occupied almost every day. Today, it was 85 degrees and with spring break, there were over a hundred folks enjoying the 72 degree water.

Since you like to see historic sites definitely work old St. Augustine into your itinerary. On the way to Anastasia SP - Cape Canaveral with the Sands Space History Center, the Kennedy Space Center Complex, and the US Air Force Space and Missile Museum.

If you are taking I75, get Dave Hunter's book Along the I75. Should be at your local book chain. Detailed description of the road with all the shops/attractions at each interchange and historic etc. details. Also tells you what lane to be in.
We gave a copy to cousins on their last trip south and they got slightly off track because the navigator was reading the incidental details instead of telling hubby where to go!
Book is updated every 2 years now.

Sounds like a good book, but we won't be taking I75. Thanks.

It's just Mrs. SpeakEasy and me now (empty-nesters). But we can choose from among 7 grandchildren to drag along with us!

Great tips. Thanks!

We do plan to visit St. Augustine while we're at Anastasia S.P. Saw the Kennedy Space Center last year. Had to! I'll look into your other tips.
