Kitsch on US1; Nassau and Duval Counties

This post originally appeared on the Desolation Travel blog back in July 2012. I am incredibly busy at the moment and haven't had time to get out and take any pictures for the blog. However, I drove much of this route this past Saturday with my mom, and remembered that this blog post existed and decided to re-post it over here. Enjoy!

US-1 was the main north-south highway in the eastern US prior to the construction of the Interstate Highway System. Interstate highway I-95 roughly parallels US-1, but it is far enough away from it that the hotels, motels, bars, and restaurants along US-1 have all but faded into the underbrush. US-1 is still traveled, but typically only by people going short distances. Long haul travelers usually take the Interstates. My mom and I had popped down to Jacksonville, FL from her home in Waycross, GA the other day, and we took US-1 there and back. The stretch of US-1 between its intersection with I-10 in Jacksonville and the Florida/Georgia border is dotted with the remains of old motels.

  3. It is also the peak visitor season time in Thailand, so count on lots of recent friends on the greater fashionable tourist places just like the islands and essential towns.

  4. Immediately a bit of guests will continue across hotel rooms and obtain tied bus excursions, however, many with all the fancy car applications provide your own tour specialist. That just might help you browse through the neighborhood well you could an individual’s chose chauffeur. ??? ???? Jurassic coastal tours
