A1A from JAX to Miami

Is this a scenic ride? Or a pain in the rear to navigate as opposed to I-95 or I-75? Time is not a concern.

All depends what you are driving. A Porsche 911 with the top down? Gorgeous ride. A 40 ft DP with a tow? Take I-95 or the Turnpike.

You might want to take portions of A1A, then flip back to I95. It is a beautiful drive, especially off tourist season.

Enjoy!

A1A is a PITA in a coach. Do like we do in other locals where the road is a great tourist view but not for a coach. Stay at CGs near the route and drive the toad on A1A.

We reside in FL and A1A in a car is fine although it can be tedious at times, in an RV it would be near impossible. As mentioned by others stick to the main roads, I-95 is fine and not far from A1A should you want to visit a particular area. Avoid rush hours at all costs, especially from West Palm Beach to Miami. If you are headed to the Keys, take the Turnpike. I-75 is a Fl west coast road.

A1A through St. Johns and Flagler Counties (between St. Augustine & Daytona) is doable in a rig and VERY scenic. As others have said, avoid the cities along A1A... Parts of U.S. 1 can be done in a rig as well.

If you enjoy counting stop lights, A1A is the way to go. From JAX to MIA my guess would be over 500. Some lengths of A1A are very enjoyable but once you get to West a Palm, it'd be rough in a RV.

The scenery is pretty much the same, mile after mile of beautiful sand beaches...interrupted by inlets, small towns, strip shopping centers, narrow/twisty sections, horrendous traffic and more traffic lights than you could ever imagine. Hope your brakes are in good shape.

Don't forget all the drawbridges! PITA in a rig.
