Hire a car in Sanford

Situated in the heart of Seminole County, Sanford offers convenience for visitors to central Florida.

If you're seeking a destination within easy driving distance to major theme parks and beaches, yet quieter than Orlando, Sanford makes a great base.

Compared to its larger and more modern neighbours, the city's downtown area still retains many 19th-century charms. It's been renewed with historical elements, including traditional brick lanes and lamp posts, that induce an atmospheric ambience. Watch sailboats breeze past the brightwaterfront as you stroll down the palm tree-lined Riverwalk, enjoying Lake Morone.

  • Cocoa Beach

    For great surf breaks and iconic rockets (found at the Kennedy Space Centre) this is the beach to hit up.

  • Tallahassee

    The capital of Florida, the city features plenty of museums, parks and even a natural-habitat zoo.

Haunted highways

Florida's I-4

For anyone seeking a possibly hair-raising, but scenic road trip through Florida, take a drive down the I-4 Dead Zone. Located between Tampa and Daytona Beach – with Sanford in the middle – this highway has been the centrepiece of strange happenings since its construction in the 1950s.

Sanford itself has a dubious past, which has sparked legends about the area and spooky tales about driving through it. The city was built on what was originally a Jojoro community, which later became a Swedish settlement, and endured a Yellow Fever epidemic, massive fire and harsh winters. All this left behind an abandoned town and large grave sites that the highway was built on top of.

For a mix of historic ghost stories and tours around hot Florida city, the I-4 is route that you'll want to drive.

The nation's oldest city

St. Augustine

Roughly one and a half hours' drive from Sanford is St Augustine – the oldest permanent settlement in the US. Founded in 1565, the town, as a whole, is a significant landmark.

In comparison to most other US cities, St Augustine surprisingly retains many elements from its early days, including evidence of its time under Spanish rule, cobbled streets and old-fashioned cafes. Take the trolley through the city and explore the hidden nooks of its historic district or settle into the sand along its 43 miles of beaches.
