to 589?? It it worth it?
I'd then use I-75 to US27. The exit is near Ocala. You don't want to go through Tampa needlessly; IMO.

Another thought to avoid the construction on I-75 and to avoid going thru Tampa traffic to pick up the Veterans/Suncoast Pkwy would be to take I-75 from Ruskin to State Road 56 which is right after I-75 and I-275 merge (I think it is exit #275), go West on 56 which becomes 54 to 589 (Suncoast Parkway) and north to the end (Hwy 98) which will merge on US 19 South of Homosassa.

If you go this route, note that the exit for State Road 56 is about a mile long so if you miss it you can go to State Road 54 which is just past the rest area if you need to take a break.

For many years we have traveled out and back to Top Sail state park in Santa Rosa from Sarasota. We used to make a two day trip with a stop in Williston, FL. Now we just do the trip in a day using I-75 to I-10. For me I would go 674 from Ruskin to I-75, to I-10 to ext 130, RTt. 231, down to Panama City. As stated earlier there is construction on I-75 starting above Dade City to just below Willwood, not bad, I was on it two weeks ago. After that the Interstate is in good shape.

DO NOT DO THIS!!! I live in & work in this disaster zone...

Take 75 to hwy 52 west to Suncoast (with tolls) to 98 (hwy 56/54 is a DISASTER right now on traffic light timing and the amount of traffic, hwy 50 runs you thru a lot of lights in Brooksville, but right past our dealer, Register ...we love). You will love the ease of the drive on 98 ...

I'm pretty late chiming into this...but when I use Google Maps to plan backroads trips (mostly motorcycling) I use the Options tab and select highways/toll roads. It comes up with much more interesting/entertaining routes right off the bat. Then I'll modify accordingly.
Having driven 98 many times along the Nature Coast/Forgotten Coast, I predict you'll really enjoy it... Best of luck!!

Cheers,

Joe
