GREETINGS and welcome to ExploreA1A.com, a site dedicated to the belief that Florida’s scenic coastal highway A1A, a road that has inspired so many artists, outdoor enthusiasts, and explorers of every kind, deserves to have a brand, a status, and a community that rivals other legendary highways such as Route 66 or California’s Route 1. Whether you live in the state or are just visiting, we invite you to join our growing community of kindred spirits who tend to enjoy the journey as much as the destination and who are similarly passionate about protecting the waters, beaches, and abundance of other natural resources that make this iconic route so special.

The seaside communities represented on the site reflect only those we’ve actually visited and with the exception of the sea turtle images or as indicated by photo credit, every photo is an original that we’ve shot along the way.

During the coming weeks, months, and years as the website evolves, we’ll continue to add more locales and through the help of our fellow explorers, expand on the ones that we do; and as we build the most fiercely loyal, inclusive travel community on the planet, we hope you’ll choose to come with us. For now, we simply want to let you know we’re glad you’re here and look forward to sharing old memories, creating new ones, and exploring A1A with you in a refreshing new way.
