Callahan Florida Pictures
After eating at Shoney's buffet, and easily traveling thru Georgia via Interstate 95, we set the GPS to Callahan Florida where our relatives live.
Unfortunately we were unable to contact them to let them know we were in town, and so we kept traveling south on Highway 301. So this page is going to be my catch all of things we did on Highway 301. We stopped in Callahan also on the way out of Florida.
Hwy 301 was a bit slow, and it started to get pretty hot outside, so we stopped at a roadside Orange Juice Center and purchased some fresh squeezed orange juice.
It was really good. This Orange Juice Stand also had a small orange tree orchard.
We sat on their porch and enjoyed some fresh squeezed orange juice.
Most of Northern Florida did not seem to be that well maintained as far as landscaping, and there were several construction projects going on.
You could tell that Highway 301 was popular at one time, but since they put in the interstate, it had deteriorated at bit. All the small motels located along this strip had vacancies, but we did not know it was the off season.
At this point we began tossing around whether we should go to Disney World and searched our Microsoft Streets and trips for campgrounds nearby. Most campgrounds near Disney World seem to be located on Highway 25 off of the Florida Turnpike.
By this time it was starting to get pretty hot inland and we turned on the air conditioning, and set our sights on the nearest beach to us that was on the way to Fort Myers. We decided to head to St. Pete Beach.
