Pensacola, Scenic Hwy-Pensacola Bay Bridge-Bob Sikes Bridge-Pensacola Beach road to Navarre. Scenic, medium traffic density, good road condition. If entering Pensacola from Pace Fl. on Hwy 90 and connect with Scenic Hwy you will find a most scenic ride. This is not a high speed or twisty ride but scenic with changes in elevation. Most of the ride has Pensacola Bay and the bluffs to the left and wooded upscale homes on the right. As you leave Scenic Hwy and turn left on 17th avenue you wind through a residential area and end up on the Three Mile Bridge over Pensacola Bay. As you exit the bridge you go through the community of Gulf Breeze. When you see the large neon Dolphin sign you turn right and go over the Bob Sikes Bridge. In good weather be sure and notice the sail boats and other water craft. On the other side of the bridge you will find yourself in Pensacola Beach. You can go to the left and on to Navarre or go to the Gulf side and look at the great scenery. If you decide to head on to Navarre, notice the great beach houses and then you come to an area of just dunes on both sides. As you head toward Navarre you can see the Gulf of Mexico on the right and Pensacola Bay on the left. The road has a few turns. This is not a performance road but a scenic one.
Northwest, Apalachicola National Forest. Low traffic density, Good road condition. Take route 12 south from Bristol to 379 and then 65 south to Eastpoint. Road is mostly fast sweeping turns, no quick left/right transitions. MAP
Northwest, near DeFuniak Springs. County Roads 183 and 280/280A. Both scenic and twisty. Low traffic density, good road condition. From route 81 between Redbay and Ponce de Leon, take 183 west then continue on 280. Also, Knox Hill Road near the beginning of 183, 183A at the 183/280 intersection, and 280A where it splits off of 280. 183 is fairly twisty, with some blind corners and some rural residences, so be careful. 280/280A are more of the same, but a little more open, meaning faster sweepers instead of tight twisties. They end in DeFuniak Springs, where 280 is Bay Rd and 280A is 2nd St. All the roads are in good condition, and there are some good elevation changes too. Have fun!MAP
