One of my favorite roads in Florida is Route A1A along the northern Atlantic coast. This two lane road hugs the coast for 72 miles from Daytona to Ponte Vedra Beach. For many of those miles, the ocean is in your windshield and just a stones throw from your RV’s side window. Much of Florida’s Atlantic coastline is heavy developed, but along A1A, you can experience many miles of undeveloped coastline. On a recent stay in northern Florida, I got a chance to re-experience A1A.
I first encountered A1A about 15 years ago while on a week long bicycle trip. The major part of our route was biking along the coast from Titusville to St. Augustine. Much of the route had us biking on A1A. A few years later, I biked the northern section from Ponte Vedra to St. Augustine. Here’s a map that shows the route that A1A follows.
