Old City, Saint Augustine

(4.5/5 based on 1,000+ reviews on the web)
Soak in the charm and history of the oldest city and port in the continental United States, Old City. Founded in 1565 by Spanish admiral Pedro Menéndez de Avilés, the city was Spanish Florida's capital for 200 years and the Florida Territory's until 1824. Walk the cobblestone streets and admire the Spanish-style architecture, explore the museum and other exhibits, grab a bite to eat, and shop. Purchase a hop-on-hop-off trolley ticket to get around or go by foot. The price of the ticket includes admission to several points of interest, including the jail, general store, history museum, and a demonstration at the tea house. Keep in mind that much of the city shuts down by 5 p.m. Plan your visit to Old City and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Saint Augustine trip itinerary planner.
