Though heavily restored, St. George St. is second only to the fort as a must see in St. Augustine. Lined with touristy shops along with unique to St. Augustine venues, everyone enjoys strolling the street.
We recently visited St. Augustine for a long weekend. Most enjoyable was walking down St. George Street in Old St. Augustine. The shops were unsurprisingly geared for tourists but some were a cut above for shopping. If you arrive early or have reservations there are...More
We go every Christmas to ST Augustine, the beautiful decorations, the distillery tours, the shopping, the Fountain of Youth, the old buildings since this is the oldest city in the US has so many things to see and do. Take a trolley tour and find...More
St. George street is not only an area of historical homes and store fronts. Most have been loving restored or preserved to period. Many shops carry from clothing for whole family, jewelry, souvenirs, ice cream, candies along with specialty artisan shops. Take a day or...More
Walking St. George is a must do in St. Augustine. It is a pedestrian street loaded with shops, attractions and restaurants. The nice thing about the street is that there are a lot of benches to take a rest on. It gave the older ones...More
This is pretty cool. It's the way it is in old Europe. Store are next to each other and the street is narrow. Just for pedestrians. There is a wide variety of stuff to see, eat, drink and purchase on this street and it's avenues...More
Beggars every few feet, many with animal companions they use to tug at your heartstrings. Tacky tourist shops abound. Parking is an expensive nightmare. Ripping off visitors is the only viable industry.
I have been trying to locate the name and/or phone number for a small business on St. George Street (on the side closest to the ocean) that sells beads. I can't quite recall the name, but I think it included the word 'beads' in the name. It's a tiny little all-wooden space, and the owner (nice lady with long blond hair) has a really great selection of new and vintage beads. Any leads would be greatly appreciated Thanks!

Thank you for the website link. Unfortunately, this is not the place I remember visiting. Maybe I am wrong about the street being St. George? It did seem to be the main drag with all the shops.
St. George Street safety question (11 Replies)
Hello all, I posted on this site last year when preparing for our first visit to St. Augustine and I received a lot of helpful information. We enjoyed our stay so much, that I am starting to look into coming again this August. I was checking out reviews on things to do on trip advisor and a lady posted that she and her daughters were being harrassed on St. George St. by a group of teenagers. It sounded like this group of teens was bothering other teens and shop owners. This is...More

I was in St. Augustine last week for a few days. My family and I were on St. George St. two nights and did not encounter any problems at all.

itinerary advice? (5 Replies)
I'm taking my 11 year old daughter on a girls trip to St. Augustine in June. I have a list of things we for sure want to do but not being familiar with the place I'm not sure what is nearby to each other and what we could possibly do in one day and what we need to spread out. We will not have a car so planning on using Uber or walking (the place we're renting is near the downtown area). Here are the things we'd for sure like to do so if there is anything I'm missing feel free to add it to...More

June is a great time to visit! You picked some great activities. I’d suggest you start with a 3 day trolley ticket. The first day do the whole circle and you’ll have learned enough to know where you want to go back and spend time. I’d include the inside of the fort for day 1. As part of your trolley ticket you’ll be able to take the beach bus. On day two take said bus and get off at the Alligator Farm, then visit the lighthouse across the street, climb to the top and visit the museum there...More
