If you find yourself required to drive from central florida to Tallahassee or beyond, conisder this route. I’ve always just driven the no-brainer I-75/I-10 interstate route and it is deadly boring. But two different people in Alabama last week recommended the US 27 route through Cross City. We took it on our return drive home and it was great. Its a lightly travelled divided highway for almost the entire route, with the diversion of cutting through an occasional town. Its a little shorter than the interstate route, but our GPS made it out to be about 6 minutes longer. We didn’t time it, we just enjoyed the drive. We even saw buffalo.
