Roads, Transit and Major Highways in Gulf Breeze, FL

Gulf Breeze is located in northern Escambia County, which has a relatively small radius of main roads. The city’s main thoroughfares are US 29 and SR 165 (Florida State Road 165), which runs east to west through the central part of town. Because of its location in an isolated section of northwest Florida, highway access is limited in this area. Gulf Breeze also has no major road routes connecting it to other cities or towns. If you need help getting around, look into carpooling, vanpooling, or using public transportation or Car Sharing Services like Lyft and Uber instead.

US 29 and SR 165 (Florida State Road 165)

US 29 runs from Pensacola in the north to Key West in the south, crossing the Alabama state line at the western end of Gulf Breeze. SR 165 follows the same route, but continues east as a two-lane road beyond the city limits. Both highways intersect with other major routes in Gulf Breeze and are frequently used by drivers. While these roads are narrow, there are no high cliffs or other landmarks that pose a danger. SR 165 serves as the main north-south route through the city, passing through a part of town where it is known as 18th Street. US 29 is the only north-south route in Gulf Breeze, carrying several bus routes and serving as a major access route to the county. Click for more
