Flagler Beach

Traveling along Florida’s Highway A1A, which closely parallels U.S. Highway 1 and Interstate 95, is a romantic drive along the entire length of the state and offers plenty of views of the Atlantic Ocean, including Flagler Beach, shown here.

Few things are more romantic than a road trip. It’s just the two of you, with time alone on the open road, to discover together what’s around the next curve. If you enjoy seafood, a dip in the Atlantic, astonishingly colorful sunrises and a sense of old Florida, the way it was before the never-ending throngs of Disney and South Beach and Panama City tourists swarmed in, then take a drive down historic and scenic Highway A1A.

Dune grass is silhouetted by a colorful predawn sky over the Atlantic Ocean at Washington Oaks Gardens State Park in Palm Coast. Besides its formal gardens, it’s also famous for its unique shoreline of coquina rock formations.

Egret

Florida’s A1A offers endless opportunities to see wildlife such as deer and turkeys and incredible birdlife, including herons, roseate spoonbills, gulls, terns and hundreds of other species. The stately egret is among that number.
