After over a decade of work and expenditure of millions of dollars by the United States Engineer Department, the Florida Intracoastal Waterway from the St. Johns River to Miami was officially completed. The waterway was designed to provide a broad and well-marked passage of the "American Riviera." "With this new facility for safe, speedy voyaging, Florida beckons more alluring that ever to yachtsmen. We invite you to answer the call. Come to Florida in your own boats. Enjoy to romance, the glamor and the colorful gaieties of Florida life" (Florida Inland Navigation District Commissioners).
