    Very close to the main square of St. Augustine and the historic St. George St. The oldest fort in the US was established nearly 500 years ago. I walked through history in about an hour. Self guided tours are well marked in nice displays. This is a must see in St. Augustine.

    This was fun for adults and kids. It's short, but the tour guides make it fun. The history of this building and the hands-on experience makes this worth a stop on your trip to St. Augustine.

    My wife wanted to go here, and of course I agreed, being the husband that I am. My daughter and her son was with us. It’s very educational and even my 18-year-old grandson liked it, or he was being polite.

    They had a couple of shows too. One depicting how the stars were used for navigation from Europe to the newfound land, known then as Florida then. The other show was how the Spanish travel across America and settled in various parts of the continent.

    There was live cannon fire and of course, a tower to climb and some other attractions as well the fountain of youth. I had the water, I don’t feel any younger, but at least I tried.

    There was a good gift shop on site and a barbecue off site.
    Admission wasn’t cheap, but it’s off the list!

    This is a very interesting part of St Augustine which is the oldest town in the US. Many old buildings are still there but most have been expanded and modified over the years

    We did not go into the church, but we walked the entire grounds which are perfectly manicured. The walk to the cross is breathtaking along with all the figures along the way. This is a perfect escape from bustling downtown.

    St. Augustine has a fascinating history, the Old Village is worth the time to take a stroll and get acquainted with it.

    Nice, quiet area on our visit. Seemed to be overlooked as we were the only ones walking that afternoon! Lovely homes and gardens. Made for a wonderful stroll on a hot day!

    This little school house is so cute! It’s a self guided tour. We learned a lot from our tour. I would recommend going to it. Only thing I didn’t like it was expensive. It’s worth more like $1-$3 to get in not $5. You can easily see the whole thing in 10-15 mins.

    Out of everything we did in St. Augustine for the week we were there - this impressed me the most. This museum is exquisite with so much history, details and artifacts...it was a bit overwhelming! The colors and attention to detail were spot on and for being 2 floors of rooms, you could take your time and take photos of whatever you wanted. It was very relaxing. Only one room had banned photos and it was the Egyptian room. Once you walk into the room you will understand why. Overall I loved this museum and I think you will too.

    The fort is on the north end of the area. And was inhabited by black slaves from the north, mainly Georgia, who escaped to Florida. Florida was owned by Spain and the King immediately declared them free. We really enjoyed that. Easy access, nice visitor’s center and easy parking. No reservations. Park first near "the walkway to freedom" and after seeing that drive further up the road to the visitor center parking. We spent an hour or more. Worth the drive.

    What a neat old tree. So big around. Near the Fountain of Youth in the middle of a motel parking lot! Worth a stop then walk to the FofY through the Spanish moss trees

    This is one of the few real stops in the touristy area that has some real history and isn’t a tourist trap (the other good stops being in Old Town). It’s an interesting house and a free tour with a suggested donation that goes to a good cause. It takes maybe 25/30 minutes to go through everything and definitely worth a look.

    We recently visited beautiful historic St. Augustin. Husband wanted to try a ghost tour that wasn't a lot of walking, we've been walking non stop forn3 days, so he booked this tour. Very educational and fun! Our tour guide Ms. Mimi & driver Sharky truly enjoy tjeir jobs. Its wonderful to see Ms Mimi share her knowledge of St Augustin history & it didn't hurt that she also is a history teacher, hope her kids appreciate how lucky they are to have a wonderful teacher! Tour was fun and easy to get in & out of bus. Money well spent!
