Friends of A1A Scenic & Historic Coastal Byway is a non-profit organization
with a mission to preserve, protect, promote and enhance the outstanding
resources of the 72-mile A1A corridor through NE Florida's coastal counties
of Flagler and St. Johns. The organization is composed of volunteer citizens
who collaborate with municipalities, government agencies and other civic
groups to improve facilities, amenities and promote interpretive stories
about the area's intrinsic resources including nature, culture, recreation,
archaeology, scenery and history.
The U.S. Department of Transportation designated the A1A Scenic & Historic
Coastal Highway as a National Scenic Byway in 2002. The 72-mile corridor
covers both St. Johns and Flagler counties, spanning from the
Volusia/Flagler County Line to the St. Johns/Duval County Line on the east
coast of Florida. The Byway is one of 150 National Scenic Byways in the
country and one of 23 scenic highways in the state of Florida. The A1A
Scenic and Historic Coastal Byway emerged from three Florida Scenic Highways
originating in the late nineties: A1A Ocean Shore (Flagler County -south),
A1A River to Sea Trail (Flagler County -north), and Scenic and Historic A1A
(St. Johns County).To join Friends of A1A at the single level $25; family level $50; or business level $75, please download and return the Membership Application ver2012.pdf and mail a check or pay below online. We appreciate your support!Learn MorePUBLIC MEETINGS
