I took this loop to visit friends I had not seen in some time.I tried to avoid busy roads and stay in rural areas. This route took me through Florida's farmlands, sugar cane fields, beaches and the spectacular Florida Keys. The Desert Inn at Yeehaw Jct. is a must stop. The food is just O.K. but the place is shall we say 'interesting'. Avoid I-75 between Brandon and Wesley Chapel at 'rush hour'. It was like a parking lot. Up in Land o Lakes Capitol Taco is an excellent Mexican restaurant. Fort Myers Beach/Bonita Springs area was heavy with traffic. Traffic was virtually nonexistent on routes 35,31,846,858,29 and the Tamiami Trail. Homestead to the Keys via Card Sound with the obligatory stop at Alabama Jack's (decent bar food, great atmosphere) was light traffic but it was midweek. The ride along U.S.1 in the Keys is like riding to the Caribbean. Very scenic. Mangrove Mama's on Sugarloaf Key and Pepe's in Key West are but two of my favorite bar/restaurants. There are many more to choose from. Back on the mainland I headed to Lake Okeechobee via Belle Glade, Pahokee (a step back in time)Port Mayaca to Stuart and my jumping off point in Port St. Lucie. Nice easy laid back ride.

Great report! I might add that stopping and spending the night just before riding the keys is magical! The sun coming up as you ride south across the keys is amazing....the water seems to sparkle like diamonds early in the am. Of course I am a little prejudiced....LOL
