Traveling north-south, Florida State Road 363 begins in the city of St. Marks by the St. Marks River. The state road follows a rural routing northward to Wakulla and Woodville, two unincorporated communities, into Leon County. Once in Tallahassee, SR 366 transitions into an urban boulevard, first following Woodville Highway, and then swapping places with SR 61 along Adams Street into the center of the city.

SR 363 travels 20.04 miles from St. Marks in Wakulla County to Van Buren Street on the south side of Downtown Tallahassee. A one-way couplet carries a branch of SR 363 west along Bronough and Duval Streets for 0.518 miles southbound and 0.506 miles northbound. The couplet includes viaducts above a CSX Railroad line, Van Buren Street and FAMU Way.
