Not much to see other than shopping. Safe for all ages and very busy during the middle of the day. The best part is the Old City Gates.Don't waste too much time here you'll miss out on the true jewels of the city. I would recommend that you visit Castillo de San Marcos first thing in the Morning(it opens at... More

All types of shops, restaurants, snack places. Some of the shops have typical tourist fare, but some have some original artistic pieces. Don't forget to read the plaques on the historical buildings. Go through some of the shops and see the awesome courtyard gardens. Also, pet friendly. Singles, couples or families will enjoy.

Not as much history as shopping. Local artists represented but shops held a lot of crap that parents waste money on to keep little kids happy.

This several block long, pedestrian only strip, is a block up from the water. Enter the remains of the city gates and enjoy food, shops, craftmen at work, the Oldest School house, a colonial village, even a small park. There are specialty shops where artisans make their items on site, but also typical touristy stores for the must have post... More

This was my favorite part of Old Town shopping! Lots to choose from and shops to get lost in. Around every corner is a surprise. Lots of great places to lunch as well. Park at the city's car park close to the city gates for $10 all day! It was wonderful to walk the streets and imagine what life was... More

Of all the wonderful sights and attractions in St Augustine you absolutely must do St George street. Suggest you stroll the street after dinner. It has a wonderful "boardwalk like" atmosphere. Many charming shops are available to visit and live music in many restaurants. A totally family friendly experience. Enjoy the sights, smells and people.

This street is one of the reasons we keep returning to Augustine. There is a great mixture of restaurants and craft shops with unique gifts. We never get bored walking along and love doing so early in the morning when it is quiet and businesses are getting opening up and getting restocked. The one disappointment is the mess being made...

There are roads and buildings in the historic district under renovation at this time in order to make ready for a visit from the King of Spain, who will be visiting St. Augustine in honor of its 450th year birthday. There are a few detours, but none that will hamper or disappoint your visit to the oldest city in the... More

It's about 3 blocks of shops and places to eat right off the bridge. It can get crowded during peek season but still very interesting. Little "hole in the wall" places to get amazing food and drinks. Specialty shops for clothing/hats and such. A little touristy? Yup. But it's a tourist location so what do you expect. Very cool at... More
