The Oldest House is a unique visit, and if you're short on time, definitely stop by. The tour will take no more than 30 minutes and they have their own parking lot. Admission is $8.00, with discounts for children and military. If you're a St. Johns County resident, it's free.
While you're waiting for the tour to begin, you can browse their little store (lots of cute items), walk around their museum (which takes you through the settlement of the area to the city today), or visit a little building on the property that takes you through several centuries of maps of the area.
The tour guide was informative and friendly, albeit somewhat rehearsed in her presentation. The house is small, but represents several eras and owners. Pictures are passed around to guests to get an idea of how the house has changed as the owners changed. Once the tour is done, visitors are encouraged to walk around the garden and visit the kitchen, which is detached from main house. All of this is worth a look. If you're a history buff, check it out.
