Sebastian Inlet State Park, FL. (I'm going there this fall on my A1A Atlantic coast road trip, staying in Cocoa Beach, and traveling from Port Canaveral to Vero Beach.) A1A is a designated scenic and historic coastal highway. SR A1A is heavily associated with Florida beach and surf culture, and is known for its lush tropical and subtropical scenery and ocean vistas. In many places, the highway directly fronts the Atlantic Ocean.
