Perhaps no stretch of highway reaches further into America’s history than the A1A Scenic & Historic Coastal Byway. An officially designated American Byway®, the 72 miles of mostly two-lane roadway navigate nature’s beauty, history and true serenity. The land and waters on either side of the Byway have been part of the sweep of American history, nature, archaeology and recreation for nearly 500 years.
From the northern boundary of St. John’s County, the Byway bisects the seaside luxury and golf mecca known as Ponte Vedra Beach, and weaves through America’s oldest city, St. Augustine; finally ending at the terminus of Flagler County at a seaside park named for a true folk hero, the Gamble Rogers Memorial Park on Flagler Beach, the A1A Scenic & Historic Coastal Byway connects State Parks, National Monuments, stunning beaches, nature trails, boating, fishing, preserves, estuaries and all of America’s diverse people.
Art aficionados will appreciate the many premier art galleries along the Byway.
With nearly 100 different types of venues, visitors can view art of many
genres from international, national and local artists, much of it featuring nature,
aquatics and Florida’s environment. Mediums include oil, acrylic and watercolor
paintings; wood, stone, marble and granite sculptures; ceramic and
clay pottery; black and white and color photographs; hand-blown glass,
handmade jewelry, various textiles and many other imaginative creations.
Public art along the Byway includes colorful mosaics, sculptures and statues.
