Scenic & Historic A1A Meeting today at 3 p.m. in S. Ponte Vedra

Many people in northeast Florida traverse Scenic and Historic A1A in St. Johns County from Jacksonville, through St. Augustine to Flagler County, especially on weekends. This past weekend was no exception with the most traffic I have seen in a long time. It was a challenge crossing A1A to enjoy the beach, but it was possible and well worth it. With The Player's Championship in Ponte Vedra Beach, the Ancient City Crawfish Boil in St. Augustine, The Sunday Market in Vilano Beach, and Mother's Day, much was happening in our area. We had such fabulous weather, too!

Scenic & Historic A1A is the St. Johns County state scenic highway section of a National Scenic Byway, A1A Scenic & Historic Coastal Byway(aka Friends of A1A). If you have been wanting to get involved in helping to protect, preserve, maintain, and enhance this beautiful byway, please come to our meeting today from 3 - 5 p.m. at the South Ponte Vedra Civic Association Building located at 2724 S. Ponte Vedra Blvd.
