My un-sightseeing stop in Navarre Beach Florida-

Traveling from Pensacola to Jacksonville Florida last week I hopped off the I 10 and enjoyed a few days on this beautiful beach.  The hotels and condos offered beautiful views on both the Gulf of Mexico side and the bayside.  It was an easy 25 mile drive off the I 10 and a scenic route to continue on to Destin.  If you are not carrying  your fishing gear that’s not a problem because it can rented.

The lodging was affordable,  and we ate delicious gulf shrimp.  Restaurants and shopping  all around.  Definitely will consider a second visit.

Ferry
Located 20 miles south of Amelia Island on the scenic Florida A1A.

Anytime I get the chance and have the extra time going to Florida I exit the I95  and hop on the A1A.  If you are traveling south on I95 from Georgia into Florida look for the Yulee exit to Fernadina Beach or if you are traveling north into Georgia get off in Jacksonville and get the A1A at the beach.

This will set you back about an hour through the Jacksonville area if you don’t stop and look at the beautiful ocean and river scenery.

Things to look out for:  You may get a peak at an aircraft carrier in port at Mayport Naval station

Manatees and an abundance of other wildlife

Restaurants with a selection of fresh fish and other seafood , available to eat in or pack in your travel cooler

If your traveling with the little folk the ferry is great fun too!!!

Happy trails…don’t miss the Florida A1A
