    St. Augustine is the perfect location for a wedding, family, surfer or senior. It satisfies a wide range of interests in one the most beautiful areas on the planet! Stroll through the historic downtown and enjoy countless opportunities for touring on land and sea and enjoy your choice of hundreds of fabulous eateries and watering holes.
    And then head to Anastasia Island to unwind at one of the top 15 beaches in North America! You will have dozens of restaurants, entertainment and activities to choose from and enjoy the culture and natural surroundings. There is no way to squeeze all of the opportunities available to you into one visit...but then after your first visit you will find you cannot help but come back time and time again.

    Aside from being the oldest city in America, St. Augustine is one of the most beautiful places in America. I could be biased though since I spent a few of my formative years here (Anastasia Island).

    The place is full of history surrounded by a modern day lifestyle.
    Go to St. George Street downtown for some shopping. Hit the beach for a day in the sun. Go to one of the many museums. Or just relax - everything seems to move at a slower pace here.

    Historic oldest city in the United States. There is something for everyone here. Hop on a trolley and tour the town; visit Flagler College and take the tour; entertain the kids at the Pirates Museum which is fun for young and old; checkout the art galleries or visit the antique shops. Plenty of restaurants with a wide variety of foods.

    Downtown St Augustine is a must during the day to stroll with the tourists down St George St but it is at its best at night when it transforms into a lovely walking style Europen Town for great restaurants.

    This is the oldest city in the Americas with some really great architecture and amazing ocean views. Great fish tacos and surf and perfect weather in the winter.

    30 Minutes straight up A1A from our condo takes you to the downtown area. All our guests love St.Augustine. Something for everyone: art galleries, ghost tours, history, Fort Castillo, Shopping, a brewery, old time Fudge shoppe, brick paved streets, and realistic Re-enactments in the central square, complete with "gunpowder". Even a Florida winery with a tasting option.

    OK, it might be a tourist trap with the fountain of youth and tours, tours, tours. But you will never see architecture in the oldest city in America like this. The Lightner museum is worth the trip all by itself, and the old fort Castillo de San Marcos is great fun.

    This was my first trip to Florida. I was there for a friends wedding and loved it so much we went for 5 days and 4 night. It the most amazing place the people where nice the scenery was beautiful. I cramped so many things to do but I truely love the Lighthouse, zoo, fort beaches. There was so much to see and do that if I ever get a chance to go back I would definitely do it best time ever.

    Wonderful Old Charm! If you like historic places-this is the place to go. Even the streets show how old this city is. The old fort and the old jail are 'must see' sites!

    I love this town! This is just a beautiful place with a very relaxed atmosphere. Very family oriented. The beaches are beautiful and big! Great for riding bikes on which my daughter and I enjoyed every morning. I highly recommend St. Augustine! One of my favorite beaches!

    What a strange place. We stopped here by chance on our way to Savannah. This is a kind of town completely converted in a commercaial area. Some buidlings are maybe original but the place is really kitsch.

    A charming town near the water which features Spanish Colonial buildings and streets. Though a tourist attraction, St. Augustine has maintained its old world charm and romantic ambiance. It is a perfect getaway if you prefer historical sites over theme parks.

    I love this town, especially for the military discounts they offer!
    My daughter and I and other friends took a local segway tour of the city... what a great way to get arouond, and SO EASY to ride!
    The train is a wonderful way to get around. I especially enjoyed the Ripley's Believe it or not Museum... usually I wouldn't give it a second thought, but it was interesting.
