Florida State Road 800
State Road 800 (SR 800), locally known as Spanish River Boulevard or Northwest 40th Street, is a short east–west highway in Boca Raton, Florida. Its western terminus is an intersection with County Road 809, locally known as Military Trail; the eastern terminus is an intersection with North Ocean Boulevard (Florida State Road A1A) near the Atlantic Ocean shoreline at the northeastern corner of Spanish River Park.
SR 800 provides the only access to SR A1A and the Boca Raton beaches in northern Boca Raton. It is one of only three beach access roads within the Boca Raton city limits, the other two being Palmetto Park Road (the north–south dividing line in Boca Raton, formerly Florida SR 798) and El Camino Real to the south.
