“St. Augustine, FL”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2014

We visited on March 8, 2014. It happened we hit Celtic Festival and the place was very crowded. Since we had an evening wedding to attend in Jacksonville, we only were able to visit the Visitors Center (very helpful), the adjoining old cemetery and Fort Castillo. The fort was very interesting and we took some great photos.
My wife wanted some seafood for lunch so we chose Barnacle Bills which was near where we parked. It appeared to be a ma and pa type place. The food was very good and the service was excellent. I had alligator and some cheesy grits. My wife had grilled mahi mahi with mango sauce. Both were very good and not too pricey. Less than $25 for both of us.

“R & R with the Family”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2014

The whole city is a must see. Need to have plenty of time for sigh seeing. Your not going to be disappointed. The whole European style buildings, houses, and restaurants are awesome. The city is pretty accessible by car, bicycle, and or by private tour. Have fun.

“A good walk”

A little bit of history in Florida - it's a nice walk around the town and lots of places to eat and browse in

“Lovely architecture and Restaurants galore!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2014

My husband and I absolutely love to visit and walk through Old City. We have gone numerous times and yet we always discover something new with each visit! We do avoid going in the hot summer months! October through April are our favorite months to visit. We stay at a Bed and Breakfast or the Casa Monica Hotel in the historic district so we can walk everywhere and never have to get in our vehicle until time to go home!
Oh, and the Arts and Crafts Festival the weekend after Thanksgiving is a must! Also, the Greek Festival!

“A great place to walk around”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2014

What a pretty city! Lots to do, or not. We really just walked the streets, had lunch, and visited a few museums. A really nice way to spend the day.
