A1A Scenic and Historic Coastal Byway
|Photo by Ben Prepelka
A narrow string of barrier islands outline the majority of Florida’s east coast, creating a wonderful stretch of tropical shoreline. North Florida’s A1A Scenic and Historic Coastal Byway leads travelers along 72 miles of inviting Atlantic beaches. The byway also passes through St. Augustine, billed as the nation’s oldest city. A handful of causeways, connecting the mainland to the beach islands, climb up and over the Intracoastal Waterway. Boats seen cruising up and down the waterway are those daydreams that have turned into reality. Sailboats, catching an ever present wind, ply their artful maneuvers over the broad channel.
