It seems like we've never lived far from US19, whether where we grew up, right on 19 in west Central GEORGIA, now all four lane divided... or Thomasville, GA later in our married life, or a short stint in the lower St. Petersburg, FL peninsula, several winters in Clearwater, FL, or even now in NORTH CAROLINA, only a few miles from Murphy, where 19 runs thru and up to CHEROKEE and the Smoky Mountains... we just can't seem to break away!
US19 is a very long, and very historic road, from St Pete, FL all the way 'up' to lake Erie, PA...
We love the drive thru Florida on US19, as it's divided and easy to drive, with little 'fast' traffic and the pressures that normal 'interstate' driving requires - and it's generally spotted with a few towns to traverse, though few stops. The drive is generally great until you start reaching the WeekiWachee/TarponSprings/Clearwater areas, as then it becomes a traffic-light congested stop-and-go drive.
