Melbourne Beach
A road trip for conservationists must definitely include the Archie Carr National Wildlife Refuge, a 20-mile stretch between Melbourne Beach and Wabasso. Best known for sea turtle conservation, this area is a natural habitat for 25 to 35 percent of all loggerhead and green sea turtle nests in the United States. It’s also a nesting area for leatherback turtles, a very rare kind of sea turtle.

Fort Pierce

The Zora Neale Hurston Dust Tracks Heritage Trail moves through the City of Fort Pierce in a chronological representation of Hurston’s impact on St. Lucie County. Kiosks and trail markers indicate important sites, such as the Seven Gables House, Garden of Heavenly Rest and the former Chronicle headquarters. Enjoy a bus tour of the trail and peek inside the Zora Neale Hurston House.
The Indian River Lagoon National Scenic Highway moves through an estuary that provides a habitat to more species than anywhere else in North America. The 166-mile loop along Florida’s Space Coast starts at Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge and is attractive to history buffs and nature lovers alike.

Smyrna Beach

Smyrna Beach

A 14-mile drive along A1A, starting at Turtle Mound in New Smyrna Beach and ending at Canaveral National Seashore, bisects a narrow finger of land, bordered on one side by the Atlantic Ocean and on the other side by the sheltered Mosquito Lagoon marsh and islands. The drive dead-ends at an undeveloped barrier beach historic site, once a federal House of Refuge for shipwreck victims. Features include abundant marine animals and birds, a walk to a ghost town and a boardwalk climb up a 50-foot mound left by a Paleo-Indian culture, considered the largest remaining Native American mound in the nation—and among the most ancient.

Ormond Scenic Loop

The Ormond Scenic Loop & Trail is a 30-mile double loop that offers gorgeous views of natural scenerywith bonus appearances by homes from the 1930s and 40s along a tree-covered roadway.
