Roadtrip Memories
Like millions of Americans in the Nation's Heartland during the 1960s, Cindy Scott journeyed to Florida by car with her parents to enjoy its warm sunshine and many vacation attractions.

Ms. Scott fondly recalled her several roadtrips to the Sunshine State, and the excitement of seeing billboards and signs along the way that counted down the miles to the next Stuckey's, Horne's, or HoJo's! On one of her treks into the Southland, her family stopped and stayed at the Ocala Horne's Motor Lodge where she and her family enjoyed a swim in the pool back in the summer of 1968!
