Traveling by Car

States surrounding Florida offer Interstate connections to the west coast. If traveling by plane is not your preference or it's not too far to drive, collect your fellow vacationers and carpool to the Gulf Islands. Interstate 75 in the west and Interstate 95 in the east in combination with Interstate 4 allow for a quick way to get to your vacation spot. Tools such as Google Maps can help you get your route planned. Enjoy the fun road trip!
