The Dawn of Tourism Historical Plaque

Juno Beach, Florida 33408, United States

Created By: Town of Juno Beach


This stop will take you back to the 1930s and 40s, when the first beachside cottages were attracting tourists to the area. Apart from showing you colorful advertising and aerial images from that era, the plaque also shows how the Surf Cottages motel served as a Coast Guard station during World War II. The Coast Guard patrolled the area between Jupiter and the Lake Worth Inlet at the time, when German submarines were active along this coast.
