Road trips usually focus on the adventure more than the destination. Between Point A and Point B are dozens of amazing stops, attractions, and restaurants to enrich your journey. Some of these places tend to get quirky or have some eccentric traits to catch your attention and promise an unforgettable experience.

LoveExploring recently released a list of the best roadside attractions in the country, from historic sites and lovely diners to jaw-dropping natural features.

A longtime restaurant in Florida was featured on the list: Mrs. Mac’s Kitchen! This roadside joint has happily served delicious seafood in the Florida Keys for decades, from fried bites to fresh fish tossed in salads. Here's what makes this eatery so charming to the writers:

"There are two of these diners along the Overseas Highway, which soars through the Florida Keys archipelago. But it’s the original one in Key Largo, opened in 1976, that really takes the gravy-smothered biscuit when it comes to quirkiness. There are busy displays of licence plates inside and out, plus a huge neon sign in the car park. It isn’t all show, though – the cosy, long-running spot is famed for delicious local seafood and key lime pie."
