Why A1A?

No other stretch of highway reaches deeper into America’s history than the A1A Scenic & Historical Coastal Byway.

An officially designated National Scenic Byway and Florida Scenic Highway, this iconic 72-mile stretch of A1A along the coastline of St. Johns and Flagler counties is filled with recreation, adventure, nature and scenic beauty. Florida’s Historic Coast has been part of American history for 500 years, and we’re excited to share a look at one of the nation’s greatest destinations with you!

The Friends of A1A is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the protection, preservation, promotion and enhancement of the A1A National Scenic Byway. Based on core values of transportation and safety, responsible, managed development, beautification of the scenic highway and surrounding communities, education and community outreach, and economic development and tourism, we strive to make our communities better, safer and more beautiful for residents and visitors to the A1A Scenic Byway.

We appreciate your support!
