Our Perfect Day in St. Augustine

St. Augustine may be the oldest city in America, but there is nothing outdated about this active tourist town. With a stellar food scene, plenty of attractions, historic monuments, and even great surfing – St. Augustine brings the entertainment. We love starting our day at the Kookaburra Downtown for some great coffee and then strolling down St. George Street for unique shopping! Be sure to check out the Fort Matanzas for a look at how Spanish soldiers protected Floridian coasts back in 1740! 

Afterward, if you’re lucky and visiting during the holidays, check out the Night of Lights! It has been listed as one of the top holiday lights displays in the world by National Geographic! During this annual festival, Downtown St. Augustine glows with holiday magic across its stunning Spanish Colonial architecture. Lastly, grab some grub and a drink at The Floridian restaurant for the perfect nightcap to the sights, sounds, smells, and tastes of the Old City.
