South Florida may be known for some adult entertainment, but that’s not the only porn it has to offer. Up and down the East Coast are several spots for landscape and nature lovers, whether they want to capture them for later or just enjoy the moment.

While it may come as a shock to many South Floridians, life does exist past Jupiter. Heading a little further north, you hit more rural lands, like these in Palm Bay, featuring long open roads and a clear horizon.

At the mouth of the Loxahatchee River in Jupiter rest Dubois Park. The family-friendly area has swimming, fishing and lots of great photo ops. Just across the water is the Jupiter Lighthouse, which is positioned great for sunset but is also a sight for sore eyes during sunrise.

This wildlife refuge just west of the turnpike in Boynton Beach makes you forget that you could’ve been at the beach earlier that day. With Everglades-like surroundings and plenty of pavilions to rest and eat, you can find your own little spot to watch the sunset.

Right behind Spanish River Library in Boca Raton is a lake that transforms from blue to yellow with the sun’s reflections during golden hour. You can sit around and observe the animals, or walk around the dog-friendly path. This venue has even seen a few weddings in it’s time.

Just north of Everglades National Park is Big Cypress National Preserve. Off-roading, camping and little hiking trails offer some great opportunities to get out and learn about Florida’s wildlife. Just be sure to keep your distance when you inevitably come across a gator.

Bahia Honda is a state park located in Big Pine Key, about 45 minutes north of Key West. The park offers beach front camping as well as beautifully clear blue waters. Take a day trip and kayak or plan an advance for an overnight.

Located at the southernmost tip of the Everglades lies Flamingo. With easy-to-access, backcountry camping, this is one of the darkest places in the country, allowing views of the Milky Way when in season. This location is a rite of passage for many South Florida photographers.

Phone service may be an issue, but sunset views aren’t. This wildlife management area is filled with creatures, two-legged and four, that you can observe in their habitat. With trails for off-roading, camping and watching the sunset or rise, you can get a variety of photographs and memories.

The swamp has scenery like no other. With murky water, sawgrass and (lots) of gators, you’ll see the other side of Florida not filled with tan lines and palm trees. Nonetheless, just as eye-catching

Deerfield Beach

Florida and beaches just go together. At Deerfield Beach, you have the option to watch the waves from atop of the pier, with your feet in the sand or from the patios of one of many local restaurants.
