The Views and Brews of Boynton Beach Florida by JD Andrews

I was very excited to work with @VISITFLORIDA  again eXploring Boynton Beach.

Nestled between Delray Beach to the South and Palm Beach to the North, I arrived at Boynton Beach. I was in search of some beautiful Florida views and to try out their many craft beer brews!

There are many beautiful places to watch the Sunrise.

THE VIEWS: I was happily surprised that most of the places I visited are free to the public - so beautiful and lush yet so close to the city.

12800 Hagen Ranch Road
Boynton Beach, FL 33437

Green Cay is a 100-acre nature preserve that features 1.5 miles of elevated boardwalk featuring interpretive signs about the animals you’ll see and the habitat.

My first question: why the long name. Here’s what I found: 

“In 1986, the Refuge’s name was changed from Loxahatchee National Wildlife Refuge to the Arthur R. Marshall Loxahatchee National Wildlife Refuge to honor former U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service employee and noted South Florida conservationist, Arthur Raymond Marshall.”

The Arthur R. Marshall Loxahatchee National Wildlife Refuge is 143,954 acres of northern Everglades wetlands.

I Got 99 Photos and I'm in One - Park City Utah Trip by JD Andrews

All these (iPhone) Photos are from my Amazing trip to Park City Utah back in February.

It's only a short 45 minute ride from Salt Lake International airport to the mountains and that's why so many people choose Park City for their ski vacations.

With three incredible ski resorts: Park City Mountain, Deer Valley and Canyons to choose from, I skied them all!

Accommodations: Main & Sky - two floors, three hot tubs, two decks, three fireplaces, full kitchen and dining room.
