Florida Scenic Highways are a series of scenic highways in Florida organized by the Florida Department of Transportation. Each highway passes through or connect sites that the state of Florida determines to be historically, culturally, recreationally, naturally, or archaeologically significant related to a particular theme. The state uses the scenic highway designations to promote resource preservation and enhancement, promote tourism and economic development, and educate travelers. Florida has 26 state-designated scenic byways. Six of those byways are also National Scenic Byways, and one of those federally designated byways is an All-American Road. [1]
