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

I loved this experience. It was one if the stops on the trolley we hopped off for. I enjoyed touring all the old houses add seeing how people lived in different time periods. It's a very cool setup. I highly recommend it.

After several years of visiting Daytona, we finally made it up to St. Augustine. It was a pleasant ride up the coast that lead us into the village. We enjoyed walking the streets and visiting the many shops. We had a great lunch at the harbor watching the boats and birds. The visit was very interesting and enjoyable. The village... More

Very interesting buildings and grounds. You can get some wonderful pictures here if you love statues, ferns, rocks, old buildings, etc. A bit disappointed in the emptiness of some of the buildings but still well worth stopping at.

Lovely city block, tucked in behind museums, convents and Casa Monica. This shaded trip into the 19th and early 20th centuries is a welcome oasis from the crowds in the old city. Several interesting houses and gardens are open to the public. Pay close attention to the statuary throughout. Also, make sure you take a walk through the resident artist's... More
