Scenic Sumter Heritage Byway

Road Trip

View on Map
Northwest of Orlando and south of Ocala, the Scenic Sumter Heritage Byway shows that Florida is more than beaches and theme parks. The route —S R 50/CR 478/CR 673/CR 76/US 301/CR 470/SR 44 — meanders from Mabel to the Withlacoochee River, alternating between lightly wooded rangelands and cypress swamplands. Agriculture and U.S. military history are represented here.
