Another one of the touristy things to do. It's the first jail in the US, definitely a great place for the history buff. Tickets can be purchased right outside the jail and a tour guide is included.

Very well preserved jail and an interesting look back at how criminals lived in another time. Our trustee was Poison Ivy and from the second we walked up she never got out of character. If you go to St. Augustine this is a must see.

Kids loved it. They made the tour interactive and fun. We got to learn about how prison life was back in the day and actually get locked up to see what being in a cell was like.
