I will be meeting up with a rider friend in Jacksonville on the afternoon of Feb 12th. He will fly in and then rent a bike in Jacksonville. Our plan is to zig and zag our way down to the Keys for a day or two and then head up the West side and then use I-10 to get back to Jacksonville later the following week. We will be avoiding Interstate as much as possible. How about some good places to eat below I-10. You name them and I will map them out we are open to anything and everything. Also we will avoid Daytona.

You should get lots of replies, but when you get back to the northern end of the Gulf Coast, just south of Crystal River, take the Ozello Trail out to Peck's Old Port Cove..., or on the north side of Crystal River, try Crackers.

Should you decide to come up the middle of the state, Cherry Pocket is just north of Lake Wales.

But above all else, try and time yourself to be around Marthon in the Keys around lunch time, and stop into Herbies for the BEST conch chowder you'll find anywhere.

There is a place along side of Crackers on the north side. Just walk thru the motel area there and you will see the Cuban sandwich place. I forget the name but it sits right on Crystal river. Great food and nice place to sit and eat. By far less expensive than Crackers.

Hope this helps

Just about any of the lunch run places are good bets. Clarks Fish Camp in Jacksonville is a must do. Lots of small good restaurants in the small towns off the beaten path of the interstates. I was at Pecks last Sunday for lunch and was great. One of our board members has a restaurant in Bradenton Fla. called The Lazy Lobster and has great food. If you make it to Everglades city, try The Seafood Depot, also a great place to get seafood.

If you are inland around Gainesville, Pomodoro's is a pretty good Italian place if your into that sort of thing. CR 222 (think it's 39th Street) just off I-75.

Have a great ride no matter where you end up.
