Places To Go In St. Augustine

There are some places that don’t mean to be romantic and still achieve a glimmering sense of charm. St. Augustine does this well. Here you’ll find sweeping palm trees that nestle against the hot stones of Spanish architecture. It’s one of the oldest cities in the country, and it has seasoned well with age—with classical-style fountains, gardens, and rooftops creating stunning scenes of the old world. It’s the kind of place where afternoons stretch long, and sunlight bounces shadows on ocean. Pick a hotel in St. Augustine by the shore and let your spirit settle into a space of contentment.

Things to Do in St. Augustine

Get to know the city as your sandaled feet patter on the sidewalks though town. Being an old city, ghost tours are often listed among the top things to do in St. Augustine. Learn about the historical figures of yore—like Colonel Joseph Smith and Judge John B. Stickney—and perhaps you’ll feel inspired to be as bold and brave in your life challenges. If your eyes yearn for dazzling paint splashes and ink portraits, make your way to the city during the First Friday Art Walk. And if your toes want to submerge themselves in the sand after a warm day of exploration, stroll to the shoreline—another one of the top St. Augustine attractions. The warm ocean and swaying palm trees transport you to a peace of mind unlike anywhere else. Keep your eyes open for the historic St. Augustine Lighthouse. This beautiful vestige of the past continues to evoke the feeling of coming home.

St. Augustine vacations transport you to a place straight out of a wish. It’s lively yet quiet, it’s opulent yet serene; it’s where you rediscover your center. It’s a place that simply can’t be missed.
