We like the Venice Beach area. My wife loves looking for sharks teeth a long the beaches.

When I was a kid I found a 4 1/2 inch fossil Carcharodon tooth at Venice Beach. Lost it years ago somewhere.

This is history and started the 2nd Seminole War. Unfortunately I see the museum is closed due to covid.

The area between St Augustine and Stuart has many nice areas to while away a week or so as you head south. The Ocala area is another great option. Someone mentioned Silver Spring State Park. I second that.
You could head over to Fort Clinch state park on Amelia Island as you start to head home.
There is a great GA state park in St Mary's GA, or hit Savannah. Lots to do there. Jekyll Island is along that area as well but tough to get into.
Charleston will keep you busy for a while, or Myrtle Beach.
Have a great trip.

Might want to check out some of the springs... Salt Springs Rec Area is one of my favorites... they have FHU. Weeki Watchie is pretty cool,old school Florida. Cedar Key is a laid back town. Check out Low Key Hideaway at Cedar key---- they have about 6 FHU sites

Sounds like a great trip! We do a yearly trip down to the Gulf Coast every February from Maryland. We stop in Fayetteville, NC the first night, then head to Savannah, GA. Spend a couple or 3 nights in Savannah enjoying the beautiful city and now have friends that live nearby. Then we continue down to our beautiful undisclosed location in Florida, but near Tampa. My in-laws spend 2 months in the same campground and my parents rent a house on the island a couple miles away. The kids get to enjoy 2 weeks with their grandparents at the beach, riding bikes, camping, etc.

Coming home we are stopping in St Augustine for 1 or 2 days this year (do that every 4 years or so), then we head up to Charleston, SC for a couple days. The last night we drive up to RV Crossroads at the NC/VA line or a little further into Emporia, VA. Our last day is a 2-3 hour drive home.

Lots of beautiful older cities with rich history, and the longest day is about a 6 hour drive, depending upon traffic and stops. We have an 8 year old, 6 year old and 2 year old and 3 older dogs, so we stop rather frequently for potty breaks or to stretch legs. We find that these are about as long a distance as we can comfortably go right now and it breaks it up to some great stops along the way.

I can also recommend Jekyll Island in Georgia as a beautiful place to stop. There is a nice campground in Brunswick, Coastal Georgia Campground, with easy access to Jekyll Island and St Simons.

Haven't been up to Pensacola yet, but I've heard its very nice up there. Just be advised that the further north you go in February, the cooler it will be (air and water temps). Its usually in the mid to upper 70s in Tampa area, but if the sun is out it feels even warmer. Further up the coast will be cooler.

The fort on Amelia Island is worth an overnight stay.

If you are in no hurry check out Tamiami Trail, Route 41, at the south end of Florida. Halfway across is some kind of an alligator sanctuary where you get your fill of them; rather up close but safe.
Here is one website that has the things to see/do on Route 41: https://withnorwegianeyes.com/17-attractions-along-tamiami-trail/
