Cambridge, Florida: Palm Cove Area

Cherokee Run and Palm Cove area. The two suburbs lie about ten miles southeast of downtown Cambridge, along the Atlantic shore. The Intercoastal Waterway separates the two.

Cherokee Run was a farming community until Cambridge suburban development engulfed the town. Palm Cove was a family-owned port that sprouted into a town in 1850 – exporting Cherokee Run’s goods at a cheaper rate than Cambridge.

In the last 50 years, Palm Cove has taken advantage of Cambridge’s growth – offering incentives for shopping malls, hotels, and parks to open. Its port now serves as portage for a Nassau-bound cruise line.

I-210 travels through Cherokee Run, meeting US 17 before turning north – concurrent with the US 1 Coastal Freeway.

  1. Awesome work, I used to think I was the only person on earth that did this as a kid, glad to see that I am not the only one. Are you an architect?

    • Awesome! It’s so exciting to hear from another kindred spirit. Do you have a blog with your work? I’m not an architect – just a marketer wandering if he’ll ever have the chance to shine as an urban planner.
