“Tourist trap”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2014

The main street in the old town is wall to wall tourist shops. Off the main street, the town itself is worth seeing.

“Old City”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2014

Although some street construction was underway in the "oldest city in America," that didn't keep us from making progress and memories as we walked among the shops on St. George's St. in the old city of St. Augustine.

Enjoyed tour of old town on Old Time Trolly Tours. Great way to see city and get off/on as often as one likes. Tours are narrated by the drivers. Lots of interesting historical information

“The Place To Be!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2014

This is where you want to be if your in St. Augustine. It has all the history and charm anyone could possibly want. The foods is great (try Mojo Old City for great BBQ) and there is plenty to do. If you are in town or passing through, take a trip down to the Old City!
