State Road 192

Connecting the Disney Themeparks to Florida's Beaches

Wednesday April 26, 2017

This Florida highway was built to service the tourism between Kissimee and the east coast beach towns of southern Brevard County and Melbourne. After Disney was built in the early 1970's Kissimee turned from a rural farming area to a full blown tourist tinsel town adjacent to Disney and all it's theme parks including the Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Animal Kingdom and Hollywood Studios. The shift in traffic forever turned the local sleepy agricultural area into a heavily populated tourist coridor going thru the city of St. Cloud and Holowpaw.

U.S. Route 192 is an east–west route of the United States Numbered Highway system in central Florida. It runs 75.04 miles (120.76 km) from U.S. Route 27 (State Road 25) in Four Corners, Lake County, east past Walt Disney World and through Kissimmee, St. Cloud and Melbourne, to end at State Road A1A in Indialantic, one block from the Atlantic Ocean. It crosses (and runs concurrent with) its "parent", U.S. Route 92, in Kissimmee.

US 192 is a major tourist strip in the area around the Walt Disney World Resort and features numerous timeshare and other resorts; the road includes "mile markers" (though not strictly placed at the exact mile intervals) to help tourists locate businesses. In the late 1990s, the Osceola Parkway (County Road 522) opened, providing a tolled alternate between Walt Disney World and Kissimmee.

For most of its route, US 192 is the Irlo Bronson Memorial Highway, named after former state representative, senator and cattleman Irlo O. Bronson, Sr..[3] It is also known as Space Coast Parkway, as it leads to the Space Coast.

Traveling from Disney to Brevard County's beaches on State Road 192 is the fastest and best route for tourist to get some Florida sunshine on the east coast.
