One of the new plazas along the Florida Turnpike

The Florida Turnpike runs from the south of Miami up past Orlando about 50 miles where it merges with I-75. Over the past couple of years, the state has constructed new plazas about every 45 miles. I was surprised to find they were so attractive. The Ft. Drum plaza's building reminds me of an airline terminal - it is huge with lots of glass and high ceilings; lots of restaurants and places to sit and relax; and the restrooms are very nice.

This photo is of the entrance to the Canoe Creek plaza.
