Juno Beach FL
Nestled between Palm Beach Gardens to the south and Jupiter to the north, the small town of Juno Beach offers seaside living for those interested in finding a Florida living space away from the beaten path. With a population of only a little over 3,000, Juno offers a great living alternative for families compared to the packed neighborhoods of other Florida coastal cities.
A Brief History of Juno Beach
Humans have inhabited the Atlantic shoreline for thousands of years, but only in the past four centuries have they left us any clues about their lives. When the Spanish first came to Florida, they built cities and churches that still stand to this day. While Juno has no standing relics of Spain’s colonization, the shores off of the city teem with the old shipwrecks of galleons that never made it past the reefs, and each year hauls ranging from coins to 400-year old bottles of rum surface from salvage expeditions. By the late 1800s, Juno was a stopway on the railroad that connected northern Florida to southern Florida, and the Celestial Railroad tracks with their original engines still stand. After World War Two, the famous 990-foot pier was constructed, where fishermen still test their skill against all matter of Atlantic species.
Things To Do in Juno Beach
Families living in and around Juno have access to a number of activities to keep busy year-round. Oceanfront properties allow homeowners to lounge about on the beach and be dazzler by kite boarders riding the surf. Those with some talent for angling can venture out into the deep sea for unparalleled fishing. One of the largest attractions in Juno Beach is the annual sea turtle influx during the breeding season. Those lucky enough to see these turtles at night can watch mothers drop eggs into the sand and return back to the ocean only a few yards away from their home. Those who miss out can see a variety of species at the nearby Loggerhead Marine Center. New residents of Juno Beach may be surprised by the level of community involvement here. Residents, businesses, and the Juno Beach town staff all work together to create a unique environment focused on fostering community unity, cultural activities, preserving the natural beauty of the area. For families looking for an exceptional quality of like, it is tough to beat Juno Beach.
