Unique scenery and history set St. Augustine apart from any other city in Florida with its quaint but big appeal. Visitors can see why when they stroll along the brick-lined streets and delight in the city’s European flavour, with centuries-old buildings, horse-drawn carriages, hidden courtyards, and so very much more.
Saint Augustine has plenty of history to explore — more than 450 years of it! Founded in September 1565 by Don Pedro Menendez de Aviles of Spain, St. Augustine is the longest continually inhabited European-founded city in the United States – more commonly called the “Nation’s Oldest City.”
Enticing shops will allure you as they line the narrow lanes along with the many museums. Visit historic landmarks such as Castillo de San Marcos, Ponce de Leon’s “Fountain of Youth,” and the Oldest Wooden Schoolhouse.
For 21st-century activities, consider family fun (a beach on the Atlantic), outdoor adventures (kayaking an inland waterway), golf (play where the pros play), fine dining (the fresh catch of the day), and shopping from colonial to chic. Plan your trip to St. Augustine
