We were in Juno Beach from 1/2 to 1/3/2022 as part of our Florida in January trip.
After leaving Atlanta, we were in a rush to get to Key West, over twelve hours away. We decided to suck it up and have one loooong day of driving and one more sane driving day… so this was our long day, and it started in the rain. Nine hours later, we arrived at our fancy campground.
We stayed at Juno Ocean Walk RV Resort, and wished we’d had more than one night there! It’s a spacious, peaceful campground, and our campsite was large and private. If we stay there again we may request a campsite on the south side, backing up to the Juno Dunes Natural Area.
Bonus: for dinner, we ate leftovers of homemade Indian food!
After parking the Airstream, we headed to the beach (walking distance from the campground). I wanted to go out on the Juno Beach Pier, but it’s not dog-friendly, so we skipped it. It looked neat though, and if Bugsy weren’t with us we would have paid the $1 to walk out there.
Our main activity for the evening was checking out Civil Society Brewing in Jupiter, ten minutes from the campground. We’d had their beers at one of our favorite bars in Virginia, and were excitedly surprised to be camping so close to the brewery! It’s located in a sterile shopping center, but the brewery itself is a cool spot, and the beer is yummmmy.
My sour was a collaboration with Bearded Iris, our favorite Nashville brewery! We bought a bunch of cans to take on the trip with us, and quickly realized we should have bought a lot more as we haven’t seen Civil Society elsewhere around Florida.
The next morning, we took Bugsy to the Jupiter dog beach. Go early to avoid the crowds, if you have an anti-social dog!
Bugsy loved it, we loved it, and our first stop in Florida was a success!
