    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.

    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!

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

    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.

    We were visiting St. Augustine and told that Vilano Beach was the best in the area so we headed over to check it out. It’s a beautiful beach, Hurricane Ian had blown through a few weeks prior and destroyed some of the boardwalks but the beach was lovely!

    This is a fantastic place. It’s large. The rooms are well staged with period artifacts. The history is great. If anything I felt like I should be behind a rope when looking at everything, but they let you walk around the rooms. You can easily spend a couple of hours here looking around and reading everything.

    Be careful of bringing small children though because there’s too much that can break (we’ll definitely wait until our own kids are older to bring them).

    I was expecting a bigger area, more hospital that you could walk through. Understandably the guy giving us the tour/lecture did explain that many ages ago parts of the hospital where sold off and turned into something else like the restaurant across the street. There is a house next door that use to be a part of the hospital that has since been sold which is where the herb garden was also. Our tour guide was very informative in explaining how the hospital worked etc. The herbs that’s was used etc.

    Take a few minutes away from the popsicles and Panama hats of St. George Street to learn the moving history of the early Greek settlers of this area.

    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.

    After reading other reviews, I was expecting loads of local historic photos showing how the town was built and how it's changed. There were a few, but it's mostly an art museum housing part of a donated collection. LOVELY at any rate! AND! it was the only FREE thing we saw while in St Augustine!

    Interesting to see. It is definitely a fixture and part of St. Augustine. Also has a great view of the historical district

    Great little brewery. Legit beers. Great variety and some really cool, unique brews. Get a flight and check out a bunch of them. Very friendly and knowledgeable staff. We really enjoyed it. The taco truck put back is amazing, too. Go visit and enjoy a nice, relaxing place.

    Fantastic place to go and find all kinds of fruit vegetables coffee some meats and baked goods. A must stop during your visit to St Aug. There is a general group of musicians get together and pick up song playing the whole time. Very nice, all are welcome.
