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.
The town was named after Juno, the ancient Roman goddess.
Loggerhead Marinelife Center
Our staff pick is Loggerhead Marine life Center
Loggerhead Marinelife Center is a 501(c)3 non-profit education and ocean conservation facility. 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.
Then 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.
