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.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.
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.
