RE: Route 60 East Starting in Brandon, FL to Beach
Your title may be a little misleading. When I clicked, I assumed that you were heading from Brandon all the way across to Vero Beach. Now, after reading your post, I assume that you are going to hit the turnpike and head south, yes?
If that is the case, I would suggest you eat up before you leave the Tampa area. The original La Teresita is not too far off 60, and is some of the best Cuban anywhere in Florida. The food is great, and it is a neat all-around experience. After a meal there, you will be ready for the trek across the state.
You will be relegated to fast food joints at the turnpike rest areas once you get on the highway.
