Juno Beach Pier
Juno to Jupiter
Travel north on US 1, and veer right onto A1A at Juno Beach past the royal palm entrance and find a unique and quirky mid-century neighborhood that has evolved into coastal paradise. Continuing north on A1A, the buildings suddenly give way to a gorgeous stretch of unobstructed ocean views with on-street parking and the Juno Beach Pier that stretches above the waves. The road continues past Carlin Park and turns westward to reconnect to US 1, going over the Jupiter Inlet with a direct view of the Jupiter Lighthouse. Turn right on Beach Road, pass the Outstanding Natural Area and travel north to Coral Cove Park where rock outcrops are visible at low tide.
Twenty Mile Bend
Ocean to Lake
Southern Boulevard slices across the county from the Atlantic Ocean to Lake Okeechobee with time-saving flyovers past I-95 that move traffic efficiently. Once past Wellington and Lion Country Safari, the landscape shifts from commerce and residential to agriculture at the Twenty Mile Bend. You will go over a Warren truss swing bridge, which is a delight for bridge enthusiasts, and head past the produce section where various crops are grown to feed the nation. Take the Connors Hwy past Bryant to Canal Point and turn left to ride around the lake.
Florida is full of straight, flat roads so anytime we can get a curve in the road it makes for a fun ride. Flagler Drive doesn’t disappoint. Starting out at Currie Park in Northwood and heading south, this ride is perfect for open-air convertibles or motorcycles with views of the Intracoastal Waterway. A variety of palms and yachts can be seen along the way. The downtown city vibe of condos and commerce gives way to historic and elegant homes with perfectly trimmed hedges. The waterway view ends at Southland Park, one of West Palm Beach’s oldest neighborhoods.
