For me , it is the one I am on. No matter where you are there is something different, beautiful, new to see. etc. . Some made by man, but most just nature at its best.

Why? There are some great scenic roads that happen to be in city limits.

Good point, and great choices. I would also add the Sanibel Causeway between Punta Rassa and Sanibel Island.

The canopy roads around Tallahassee during the springtime are very nice.

Miller Landing Road

That would be my pick too. It's also a unique drive too, with the Bay of FL/Gulf of Mexico on one side and the Atlantic Ocean on the other. The only way to enjoy it, though, with the sheer numbers of visitors and other drivers on that road is to relax, chill out, not be in a hurry and enjoy the spectacular views.

Overseas Highway, without a doubt. My favorite part of the drive starts when you cross Snake Creek, before that, it's mostly strip malls and hotel fronts. Crossing the draw bridge over Snake Creek gives you your first real look at the beautiful blue/green waters of the Keys.

I'd say from Aripeka to Pine Island, the road from Hudson on the old Dixie is not entirely paved.
A few other great roads ,if you are into twisties the Ozello Trail situated between Homossassa and Crystal river.
Also A1A from Daytona to St Augustine.
And of course the drive out to Key West.

Away from the coast I like the Green Mountain Scenic Byway. It takes from quaint downtown Winter Garden into the hills of Lake County. You pass through small old Florida towns and get some great views of Lake Apopka. It's a unique drive for Florida.

Ocean Drive in front of Lummus Park isn't a drive. It is a horrible crawl.

Overseas Highway through the keys and the Seven Mile Bridge.
