This morning you will pick up your motorcycle and start your ride through the holy trinity of the lower Atlantic’s historic walking towns. From Orlando you head to Daytona Beach to see the place that brings bike week (roughly the last week of February through the first week of March) to life. Besides being a living museum of pop culture, Daytona Beach has long played an important role in car culture and you might want to check out the massive race track.

Continue on Highway 1 – you are right beside the ocean, with the Matanzas River creeping along on your right. After passing Highway 206, look to your right for the Fort Matanzas National Monument. A short boat ride will take you to the Fort, which was built in 1740 for the Spaniards southern defence of St. Augustine.

You overnight in St. Augustine, which is not only a very quaint walking town, but also perfect for riding. Found in 1586, St. Augustine is the oldest permanent settlement in the US.

How about visiting the Fountain of Youth this morning? Just up San Marco Boulevard, past the giant cross marking Ponce de Leon’s first landfall in 1513, you will find this naturally sulphurous spring, which is believed to keep you forever young!

Take Highway 1 and head north out of St. Augustine, and as you ride through Ponte Vedra, Jacksonville Beach and Neptune Beach, you will notice the dense commercial growth in this area. Bypass Jacksonville and head towards the towns of Brunswick, Jekyll Island. Take Highway 17 and you are in for a slow, rural ride away from the coast and into Savannah, the finest city in the South.

Savannah is a great place and you should take some time to explore the nation’s largest historic district. From Savannah it’s only a short ride into South Carolina.

You take Highway 17 north and ride across the Hugh Talmadge Memorial Bridge. You are in Lowcountry here – marshlands for miles before you can retreat into the woods with a right turn onto SC 170. Follow Highway 170 to South Carolina’s second oldest township, Beaufort, where you’ll find grand, historic houses and a picturesque waterfront. From Beaufort you continue on Highway 17 to Charleston, a city that is English, Spanish, African, Caribbean, Union, Confederate, old and young.

Charleston is one of the finest-looking towns in the America today and a very compelling place to visit indeed. We recommend a walking tour of the historic district, which is lined with tall, narrow houses of peeling, multi-coloured stucco, adorned with wooden shutters and wide porches.

From Charleston you head west and ride back into Georgia. Take Highway 61 and you will ride by Magnolia Middleton Gardens. Continue until you get to Highway 301, you cross the Savannah River and enter Highway 24 – ride up to Milledgeville and then on to Highway 49, which will take you to Macon.

Macon is located near the geographic centre of the state and was home to Little Richard, Otis Redding and the Allman Brothers.

Today you head south, back into Florida. From Macon you take Highway 129 to Ocilla and then enter Highway 319, which will take you all the way to Florida’s capital, Tallahassee.

You are in the Panhandle now, an area that has much more in common with the states of the South than with the rest of Florida. Hard to believe, that just a century ago the panhandle was Florida.

At the western edge, Pensacola was a busy port while Miami was still a swamp. Tallahassee was built on the site of an important prehistoric meeting place, and takes its name from the Apalachee Indian: “talwa” meaning town, and “ahassee” meaning old. Tallahassee has a slow tempo and a strong sense of the past.

From Tallahassee you head south – take Highway 19/98 and ride down Florida’s west coast, which embraces all extremes. Buzzing, youthful towns rise behind placid fishing hamlets, mobbed holiday strips are just minutes from desolate swamplands, and world-class art collections vie the glitzy theme parks.

You might want to go all the way to Tampa, the West Coast’s largest city and hang out in Tampa Bay for a while before you head back to Orlando. From Tampa you take Highway 4 back to Orlando. Upon arrival in Orlando it will be time to return your motorcycle and transfer to your hotel.
