    Great Spirits. The tour is self guided and they have numerous samples. They have new whiskies since we were there in April but the Port is still the hubby’s favorite. I really liked the sample of Rum with the mixer that was provided on the tour so i bought both. Pet friendly and the staff is very nice.

    This nice old lighthouse has 165 steps to take you to the top for a nice view of the area. The lighthouse keepers residence just beside it is a very nice and very spacious building

    To me, St. George Street is the "main" thing to do in St. Augustine. You walk up and down while shopping, stopping for a bite to eat and watching people. It's fun.

    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 is my 3rd or 4th time visiting the Alligator Farm but it’s been a few years. This was my first time with my 2 granddaughters- 3 and 20 months. It was fun, but they were done after about an hour and a half. They were only interested in the alligators and crocodiles for a while and feeding them was fun. We arrived too late for the 12:00 show and they were ready to go before the 3:-show. The prices have increased and at $35 for each adult (x5) and $20 for the 3year old (under 2 was free) … it was quite an expensive trip. At that price point, I was hoping that they had added some other animals. I would recommend this for older kids… but don’t spend this kind of money on the toddlers.

    We drove on the A1A from Ormond beach to Saint Augustine. It’s a beautiful ride. It took us about an hour and a half, stopping at various places.

    Cheyenne did a great job of sharing interesting information about Flagler and the remarkable buildings he originally built as an outrageously expensive experience for the uber rich.

    My daughter (30 y.o.) and I enjoyed the museum with its pirate history and artifacts. We also liked the incorporation of Pirate movies of the past. It was quite nostalgic as we remembered watching those movies.

    My daughter (30 y.o.) and I enjoyed this museum very much but we do enjoy art and history. It was worth the visit!

    Our 2nd time to visit…we just love coming to the St. Augustine Wild Reserve! What makes this place truly special is the love all the staff and volunteers have for these beautiful animals. You get to hear stories about how each one came to their rescue facility and fun facts about their personalities. We especially love seeing those big cats cozying up to the fence to get their scratches and attention…adorable! Best wild reserve I’ve ever been to due to the personal nature of the tour and the obvious care and attention each animal receives!

    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.

    We visited a week after the hurricane. It was pretty empty. Just a few people walking around. Most things were closed to public

    This is a very nice old basilica which has been very well kept and therefore is in very good condition. Not so much gold and ornamentation as many catholic churches have which I think makes it nicer

    Small and not a ton of produce. Lots of craft vendors, really friendly. Was very hot though. Had to rush through because of the heat.

    We really enjoyed touring the World Golf Hall of Fame last February. I was a kid during the era of Niklaus, Palmer, Player, Snead, etc. My dad taught me how to golf, and occasionally would refer to the golf style of the great golfers. ("Drive for show, putt for dough!") It was pretty nostalgic for me, and it was fun being able to hit the ball on their practice pad.

    The facility is moving out in 2023, and there is not much else going on at the World Golf Complex.
