Go and explore the glades but bring bug spray!

Highly recommend. Bring bug spray...we didn't and couldn't find any on the road...go figure. make sure you save time for a cold beer and some fresh fish at the end of the trip. Fourth stop was the best.

absolutely fantastic

I've known about this area for years, but wanted to explore it further. Wow...so many great gems. The first stop allowed us to choose between an undiscovered scenic route or one that we've been on before. Highly recommend the scenic route but only if you have lots of time!
