Northeast Florida - Day Trips & Attractions Tips: Scenic Drive

As St. Augustine approaches a major milestone anniversary (450 years!), the Scenic A1A highway is an incredible way to travel the coast and see glimpses of what life was like – at any point in that vast span of history. Many points along the route show off untouched local landscape, while other stops tell the stories of native, Spanish, French, Colonial, Civil War, Industrial, Victorian and even Space Age eras. It's quite the tale to fit into 72 miles!

  • How long does it take? Zoom either north or south in about an hour and a half, or explore the route slowly – a little each day.
