Juno Beach arose along the Atlantic shore of southeast Florida with the settlement of the Ocean dune by a small group of motel and tourist court owners. The town was incorporated in 1953 with approximately 130 year round residents and 1500 seasonal population. The town is located in an area with native civilization dating from 500 B.C. and European contact dating from sixteenth century A.D. Spanish exploration and settlement.
The town was named after Juno, the ancient Roman goddess.
Our staff pick is Loggerhead Marine life Center
Loggerhead Marinelife Center is a 501(c)3 non-profit education and ocean conservation facility located on the Atlantic Ocean in Palm Beach County, Florida. The facility houses a variety of exhibits, live sea turtles and other coastal creatures. Exhibits include a massive prehistoric Archelon sea turtle replica, salt water aquaria and displays of local wildlife, as well as educational displays about South Florida’s marine environment.
In April 2007, the organization relocated to a new 12,000 square foot certified “green” facility and changed its name to Loggerhead Marinelife Center. The new facility includes a state-of-the-art full service veterinary hospital, exhibit hall, outdoor classroom, research lab, and resource center. A visit is not complete without a stop in the marine-themed gift store, featuring an excellent selection of children’s educational books and unique gift and craft items. Park amenities include a guarded beach, nature trail, playground and picnic pavilions.
Call and see when they are doing a release. There is nothing as heartfelt as watching a turtle that had been injured be released back into the ocean.
