Just take a stroll and take in the history and the old buildings and enjoy. Get a ice cream cone to beat the heat and bring a hat and enjoy!

A place I never knew about, and a place that I enjoyed very much for its beauty and history. Definitely a must stop for a traveler and adventurer. So many attractions starting from unique buildings, fortifications, galleons, bridges, light house, restaurants and bars, and many people dressed in past era times. Thousands of pictures opportunities. Just fantastic times to remember.... More

This is were you can park and pick up the trolley to go other places. First we hit the History Museum attached to a General Store, it was free to go through and had alot of old interesting artifacts and the Store had ice cream, soda, postcards and souvenirs. Next was the Old Jail, I don't recall the fee, but... More

Walking along St. George Street takes you back in time. Granted that it is a tourist trap, we learn to appreciate how early settlers lived in the 15th century. Due to the heat and humidity, we cut short our walk and enjoyed a scoop of ice cream. It is worth a return visit to explore the rest of the local... More

All of the building are well preserved with little tourist shops now residing in the buildings. Some are not worth your time others are filled with oddities. It reminded me of a clean "New Orleans French Quarter". It was nice to walk around and enjoy the morning breeze!

Great little area. Stores and restaurants and history. A little something for everyone. Some cool gift shops, and places to eat. Parking is kind of tricky. Try to park centrally so you can meander around.

My Cousin took me to see the Old St. Augustine Village. Here we viewed the nine historical old houses that are centrally located with the span of a city block. Here you get to be transported from the early 1700's to the early 1900's.

I fear this little jewel will fold for lack of funding as there was no one there when we visited. Few reasons I think. Number one, the train and trolley drivers don't "talk it up" much. They say little other then this is stop # so -n- so on the train -- nine old houses. Most everything cost about $25... More

Driving from the beach over the Bridge of Lions is a beautiful way to enter Old Saint Augustine. The old buildings are wonderful, shopping is fun, music abounds from the restaurants and pubs and the fort overlooking the bay is a wonderful historical experience. This is a very dog friendly city! Many of the restaurants made sure to tell us... More
