I75 and I95 are the major north-south connectors...
I10 goes east-west at the top of the state.

Florida A1A runs through the Keys and is named "Scenic Coastal Highway."

will that work? it's hard to find named ones here...
I live off of Historic Fruitville Road, but it's a SR, SR780. It's called Fruitvulle because all the orange and lemon packers drove the produce down out road to get to the railroads to send it up north!

oh, and a lot of rum cakes are made here from imported Caribbean rums, but that may not be good for a school report, lol

Also a lot of cuban dishes can be popular esp in south florida - like pressed cuban sandwiches which you can try to make at home Smile

I grew up eating a lot of southern food but really its not what FL is so much known for. People think of GA more for those things... like fried green tomatoes, banana pudding, red velvet cake, pecan pie, fried chicken, cream gravy.... okay now I am STARVED! lol

Gator Tail!
Frog legs.
Swamp cabbage. Those are definitely Florida dishes that you won't find in too many other places (other than Louisiana).

Bass
Mahi Mahi
Sweet Corn

I think of sweet corn too ... oh and my mom used to make fried corn! YUM!

How could I forget gator and frog legs! lol My mom loves swamp cabbage - you can buy it in the store but as hearts of palm, which does not sound as fun, huh?
