It was a real adventure for myself and my children. To try to imagine living in the day of discovery. St Augustine has history for every age.

Even though it may feel lined with cheesy tourist traps , look beyond those stores and find the hidden gems that have been here for a very long time . I moved here in 1970 and still love going downtown and walking St George Street. Ice cream at Kilwin's , the latest trends at HWDavis ,and a cocktail at the... More

Great little shops and eateries! Wonderful atmosphere. Better if you can go on a weekday, when not as busy.

This is such a great place. No cars! Many good restaurants. Cheap fav. The Spanish Bakery, Nice, The Columbia House. Candy shops, bars, Art, and really so many fun little shops. When staying in the area we typically come every afternoon to escape the best and no one gets bored of it.

We went to St. Augustine for the day as part of a recent trip to the beaches in Daytona. We very much enjoyed St. George Street and all the little shops and restaurants available for exploring. The city is filled with history and atmosphere.

Verry crowded. Hard to get around. Spent more time on the side streets and shops. Many wonderful shops on the other streets without the crowds.

There are plenty of good places to stop and eat. There are some nice shops where you can stop and browse. Definitely worth the walk.

Some of the shops are tourist traps, but there are a lot of great art shops you should visit. Much better than a t-shirt. There are also plenty of restaurants and bars to visit. Parking is hard to find in this area and will cost you at least $10.

St George Street is the main pedestrian walkway through St. Augustine. There are a lot of little shops and restaurants to visit. But the best part about it is the view of the architecture and learning about the way the early settlers designed the cities to achieve the best air flow. Remember, no air conditioning so they needed to catch... More

Still you walk the street that the settlers walked on and talked on, shopped on, and so on. This is still modernized more then you think, the stores are major chains. Pandora, kilwins, and a few others on the road. But it's still fun.
