Saint Augustine

Driving down the coast via route 1A

Hello VT members. I want your advice on a driving route. Our family is driving down I-95 from PA and will spend a day and overnight Friday in St Augustine. We will end up in Orlando to check in Saturday night.

Is it a good idea to take 1A down to Daytona Beach then get I-4 over to Orlando. I am sure it will take twice as long as I95 but thought it would be scenic and memorable. Maybe stopping along way to walk out on beach if possible.

Specifically, will I have to pay tolls to get down to Daytona at bridges and State Parks? How many?

Should I do it?

Jim

Hey, you posted this two years ago and no answers? Just last summer we drove the route you describe, A1A from St. Augustine to Daytona Beach. This is a nice, scenic route with a few parks and some nice beach views. No tolls that I recall. Like you said, instead of one hour on I-95, it's more like two hours via A1A. In my opinion, if I have the time, I'd rather take the scenic route.
