Written Directions

North of Hudson, Fl about 5 miles go left on Aripeka Road. Then as you head back east take Left on Shoals Line Blvd (County Road 507). Take this north up to the end at Cortez Blvd.

Scenery

Starts out driving through the Aripeka Sandhills area and winds through the grass flats along the Gulf and past the crystal clear Weeki Wachee Springs. Bring a suit if you want to cool off in summer and then have a bite to eat at The Upper Deck

Drive Enjoyment

Nice roads with speedlimits varying from 30 to 40 MPH and offering good visibilty of the local scenery and a couple small slow bridges.

Tourism Opportunities

I suggest a stop a Bayport inn for more food at the end of the route.

This ride was 20 minutes from my home and I felt like I was in old Florida near the Keys. Lovely simple roads with lots of scenic places to stop and relax in. If you want a nice afternoon without traffic, with grassy waters and a beach or two to stop and enjoy, this is the ride. It takes about an hour or two with stops. I'm eager to return and watch the sun set at Pine Island Park. I'll take pictures and post when I do. THis is a relaxing scenic ride along the gulf. Not a ride for those who are looking to race around twisty turns.

This is a good ride and very close to my home in Hudson Beach. I would suggest you head west on Cortez Blvd and check out that road to the end, there is a nice park at Bayport for fishing or boating and then head up to Pine Island on Pine Island Dr to spend some time at the beautiful beach there.
