Broward County A1A Scenic Highway
The Broward County A1A Scenic Highway is located alongside the Intracoastal Waterway, which is rich with history. It is home to rare, threatened, and endangered species, including the West Indian manatee, and migratory birds.
Broward County has a vibrant story which is represented along the State Road A1A corridor. The Barefoot Mailman Statue and Hillsboro Lighthouse in Hillsboro Beach, Indian Mound Park in Pompano Beach, the State Underwater Archaeological Preserve in Lauderdale-By-The-Sea, and the Bonnet House in Fort Lauderdale are just a few of the historic sites depicting what life was like long ago in Broward County.
As SR A1A traverses through its nine distinct beach communities, travelers can take in sights of sea turtle nests, indigenous dune plants, and waves crashing along the beaches. SR A1A is also filled with cultural and recreational activities to delight the traveler.
Swimming, snorkeling, fishing, and hiking at recreational parks and piers is available year-round. Visitors can enjoy numerous festivals annually, including the Pompano Beach Seafood Festival and Dania Beach Arts & Seafood Celebration.
Florida Scenic Highways are often referred to as “byways.” One of the main requirements of scenic byway designation is that it show one or more of six key intrinsic qualities: Historic, Archaeological, Scenic, Cultural, Natural, and Recreational.
