Florida's Atlantic Coast RV Adventure Guide
From “The Historic Coast” of St. Augustine to “The Space Coast” in Cape Canaveral, and “The Treasure Coast” of Port St. Lucie - the Atlantic Coast of Florida has something to offer for everyone.
With the Spanish history of massive forts and pirates, cattle ranching “cracker cowboys”, the epic ingenuity of the Kennedy Space Center, as well as immense amounts of wildlife between the ocean, estuaries, rivers, springs, and lakes the Atlantic Coast blends together to create an amalgamation of experiences and cultures ripe for RV exploration.
We cover a variety of areas in this guide, from sugar-sand beaches along the coast, inland to Florida’s magnificent first-magnitude springs, to the largest lake in the state and the subtropical wilderness of the Everglades.
Florida’s Atlantic Coast does not disappoint... we hope you’ll take the time to see for yourselves!
This guide is written as a seven-day exploration of Florida’s Atlantic Coast!
We provide a suggested route and itinerary, links to multiple campgrounds and boondocking spots, and the best spots to see along the way. Don’t plan your trip to Florida without it!
You can hit everything in seven days, do a whirlwind weekend tour, or you can take your time and explore the area over a few weeks.
Each stop is a curated view of the best things that we’ve enjoyed on this trip and want you to experience.
