Well, once upon a time it was in the sticks. That overhead photo reminded me how much Florida has grown. The first time I saw that entrance, around '71 or '72, there were 2 poorly paved lanes running past each way, with a wide grass patch in the middle and pine and palmetto scrub to the horizon, broken by the occasional farm or road side sea shells and citrus stand.

I love the old, back highways of Florida, like Highway 1 between Cocoa and Daytona Beach and Highway 41 through Inverness. With all the little stands, motels, and various odd buildings, many now boarded up, it's a real taste of what Florida must have been like before the Interstates and Disney World.
