This is one of the book's most popular features - A driving journey along the Interstates and toll routes of the Sunshine State can either be a boring, fast-paced ride between two points, or an interesting adventure . . . a chance to learn more about one of the most fascinating and historically rich areas in North America . . . much of it right alongside the roadside.

This section provides a mile-by-mile roadside travelog for your trip, with words, maps, diagrams and charts.

For instance, did you know that as you drive Florida's expressways you will pass the site of a German spy landing during WWII; drive across the ancient Spanish Mission trail; pass under a bridge with trees and shrubs growing on it - what is it you might ask; pass by wild Cowboy country with a history of bank robberies, gun-fights and lynchings - much wilder than the Wild West; cross the 1542 path of the only army ever to invade America; cross a river which carried pirates and their captives from inland Florida back down to the sea; what a tiny stream called Reedy Creek has to do with Walt Disney World.
