We use the Yelp App on our iPhones to find good places to eat when traveling. We've found some good along the way. Granted you have ignore the picky peoples reviews etc. Eating out while on the road is adventurous for sure but that's the fun part of it !

Hi reubenray,
While at Bahia Honda ask how to get to No Name Pub. If you go take a dollar bill and magic marker. The experience will be memorable. You'll be about 35 miles north of Key West. Both north and south of Bahia Honda there is a lot to do. If the park does not have a brochure rack, go to Sunshine Key RV Resort at mile marker 39. Just inside the loby door, to the right, will be a large brochure rack that hits all the high points.

If you have never been to the Keys, leave any mainland attitude on the mainland. Once on route 1, it is 45 MPH and 2 lanes. Juts get in line and enjoy the ride.

A little noisy but great food in a New Orleans style.

Very casual ... great food.

The Island Grill Restaurant - A Favorite Among Locals - Islamorada - Florida Keys

There are ton's of good restaurants in Pensacola ... you pick.

BTW, keep an eye on flood conditions at Ft. Pickens!

I love the TV show Drive-ins Diners and Dives. Tthat said I found a link where all of the restaurants visited by Guy Fieri have been posted. I'm not saying they are all great but it is a starting place.

Salt Springs - Bass Champions and also the Square Deal across from Salt Springs( open for lunch and breakfast only)

ST George Island - good pizza at BJ's. the seafood restaurants are expensive in my opinion. better to purchase seafood and cook it yourself.

I live in Key Largo so I have eaten at most of the restaurants in town at one time or another, not a big town. The Conch House and Sharkeys Pub and Galley restaurant are very good and consistent with the food. The fish tacos at Sharkeys are the best I have eaten anywhere. Make sure you get out to the reefs to dive or snorkel, great fish life.

My daughter and her husband like to seek out the "Diners, Drive-in's and Dives" food establishments. She said some of them are true Dives but they have never been disappointed with the food. I don't know just how many they have been to but it has been quite a number of them.

When in Pensacola, take in the Naval Air Museum.

It is a shot drive to Mobile, AL. Right along the Interstate is the Battleship Alabama a B52 bomber and much more. Check out these things to do at:

USS ALABAMA BATTLESHIP
Welcome | National Naval Aviation Museum

Absolutely agree with the above, we were at the Naval museum last week,fascinating and does have RV parking. I wonder how it has fared however because that 21 inch rainfall yesterday looked to be right on top of it.
Ocala I would definitely recommend Silver Springs park great hiking trails and the famous Silver Springs river and glass bottom boat tours.

Myakka again is the old real Florida good hiking, biking and wildlife viewing.

I cannot help you with eating out because we always cook, its an ejoyable part of the camping experience to us.

Also, if you go to the Naval Air Museum, see the Lighthouse and Fort Barrancas.

Bahia Honda State Park

I live in Key West and have stayed at Bahia Honda Park several times. BE warned!!!!!!!
The raccoon are very aggressive to get to your food. Catch sunset from the top of the bridge. While at No Name Pub, go over the bridge to No Name Key for the Key Deer. Also 35 mph at night and 45 mph daytime is strickly enforced on Big Pine Key.
