I rode from Stuart to West Palm Beach today. I’m over half way to Key West! I forgot to measure my options for finding a hotel. I was almost all the way through West Palm when I started looking for hotels and couldn’t find any in my price range in the South Palm Beach area. My hotels.com app found one for 799 a night! That’s when I decided to turn back around and look for something closer to the downtown area. I found a Red Roof Inn reasonably priced near I-95. I had to ride back the wrong way 8 miles to find it though.
Here’s the map from today (you can click on it to see it on Strava.com) and pictures:
Port Salerno Hobe Sound Jupiter Island All the houses on Jupiter Island kept the ocean views to themselves. They all had lush plantings that all but obscured the views. Nice to own the ocean, eh?
Just beyond that threshold is the beach! Last chance to see this spot. Note the red pre-construction flag.
Here’s a shaky little video I took while riding along the beach.
A pretty plant with white berries. The Nature Conservancy saved a big chunk of Jupiter Island from development. Jupiter Sound And directly across the street on the ocean side. Carlin Park on Jupiter Island
