Along The Way - US-23
Running over 1,400 miles from Jacksonville, Florida, to Mackinaw City, Michigan, US Route 23 is an eclectic mix of suburban and rural scenery. It takes riders away from the Atlantic Ocean, through alligator infested swamps and over moderately high mountain passes. It is four lane highway in many places, and at times it runs concurrently with Interstate routes. Riders won't lose much time traveling this road if the intent is to cover miles quickly. But, there are so many places to stop and wander about that those wanting a leisurely pace will still be happy. At the end of the road lies one of the engineering marvels of the world, the mighty Mackinac Bridge at the top of the lower peninsula of Michigan. From Mackinaw City it's possible to continue a northbound trek across the bridge, or take a ferry to Mackinac Island to soak in the history and atmosphere of a place that doesn't allow motorized vehicles. It's a hoot, but be careful not to step in those road apples.
