What is the Florida Scenic Highways Program?
The Florida Scenic Highways Program was established to showcase the outstanding intrinsic resources (cultural, historic, archaeological, recreational, natural and scenic) that can be found along Florida’s highway system.
Our byway collection includes 27 state designated scenic highways. Of these, six are further designated at a federal level as National Scenic Byways, and the Florida Keys Scenic Highway and A1A Scenic & Historic Coastal Byway are designated as All-American Roads.
The program is a grass-roots effort to heighten awareness of these resources which enhance the overall traveling experience in Florida. Program participation provides benefits to each byway’s region, including resource preservation, enhancement and economic development.
Anyone with an interest in their community can participate in this program, including citizens, civic groups, businesses and governments. To learn about becoming a byway, benefits, intrinsic resources, and much more, explore FSHP Community/Becoming a Byway on this site.
Help Florida communities deliver high-quality experiences to visitors.
The Florida Scenic Highways Program promotes economic development, enhances quality of life, and conserves important resources.

These logos are intended for use by associated organizations, byway organizations, or media writing about the program. If you are not a byway organization or “Associated Florida Resource” on our page, please contact us to let us know you want to connect, and if you are doing a piece on us, we will look into promoting it on our blog! Using the logo in any other way is not permitted.
Annual reports can help anyone looking for more information about recent developments at FSHP. Please follow our Byway Buzz online blog for current updates about the program. The 2021 Annual Report highlights the 25th year of the Florida Scenic Highways Program! The “viewing” version of the document shows spreads, and can be helpful for looking at the report online. The “printer-friendly” version is in pages, and will print each page sequentially.
