Big Bend Road Trip Awakens a Sense of Discovery

By: Gary McKechnie


If you’re looking for a new place to travel, you may want to take a look at a feature article I wrote: Around Florida’s Big Bend: A Road Trip to Rural.

It was based on a roaming, roving exploration of a dozen rural counties, taking a random assortment of back roads and ignoring the interstates and satisfying my passion for discovery by always finding something new.

Whether it was a restaurant or a road or an attraction or a view from alongside a bay, giving myself the freedom to travel with only the slightest itinerary is a powerful thing. All of us need to see new things and go to new places and, as I learned quickly, going “off the grid” in places like Lafayette, Hamilton, Baker, Bradford, and Clay counties is something that most Floridians don’t do. But should.

To see why, check out Around Florida’s Big Bend: A Road Trip to Rural.

Then go out and discover.
