Favorite thing: Visitor Center is large and right next to the multi level garage parking. it seems to be the convenient place to get all information needed. The racks of literature are stacked high and the docents are helpful. tickets for places to visit can be purchased at the counter. Do not get confused with other signs around stating they are visitor centers also; they are places to get you to come in and buy.
Need some information on what to see or do in St. Augustine, why not visit the DOWNTOWN VISITOR INFORMATION CENTER. I popped in to see what they had in brochures and was not disappointed. The folks there are happy to answer any questions you have and there were lots of brochures and city maps available for you to use.

Favorite thing: along the rivers and beachs you will find all kinds of wildlife. There are hundreds of tiny stone crabs thats run along the beach, but try to approach them and they hurry into there tiny holes in the sand. Here Hotsauce plays with them.
The Bridge of Lions across the Matanzas River is at the very top of this picture. King Street runs through the West St. Augustine community, across U.S. 1, and into downtown. The bridge that you see at the bottom of this picture crosses the San Sebastian River.
Fondest memory: The San Sebastian winery is the large building at 157 King Street, near the lower right of the picture. They have a large retail store on the ground floor and a spiffy rooftop lounge.
Favorite thing: The Downtown Visitor Information Center is located at the West side of the Plaza. The big Information center is at the North-side of the village at the right side of the San Marco Avenue.
Favorite thing: Ah poured concrete the answer to all Flagler’s fondest dreams. St. Augustine is the oldest continually occupied European type city in the United States. It was founded in 1567 by the Spanish –burned , rebuilt, burned, rebuilt, burned rebuilt …..and much later rebuilt in poured concrete. This tip is not finished ,I have been offered free dinner in Cocoa Village so I must go.
The laid back causal attitude of the town. Shopping is fun, just leave the charge cards at home. lol. The lighthouse was also very interesting to see. The people at the lighthouse are dressed in period clothing. Plus who wouldn't forget the climb up all those stairs.
Fondest memory: We stay at the Inn on Charlotte Street and it was our first b/b experience. We got the jacuzi room and had a balcony to gaze at the Manzatas bay. Very Nice...
Fondest memory: Take a trolley tour to see the city. The tour starts at the visitor center. It travels through town at designated stops and pick-up points. You can get on and off at your own pace. One can opt to ride the trolley for the complete cycle and check out particular sites and discharge on the second trip. While on the trolley tour you will travel down a street which National Geographic stated as one of the most beautiful streets in America. Limbs are interlocked and form a canopy over the roadway. The street was filmed for the movie 'Gone with the Wind'
The outlet mall. If you do go with your Girlfriend/Wife be sure to limit her to about 1 2 hours each side or you will need to take out a new morgage to pay the credit cards off!!!!!!!!
Fondest memory: Walking through a deserted Town centre and having lunch at a pizza resturant as huricane floyd was headding towards us.
Favorite thing: CARRAIGE TOURS Did not do this but worth mentioning since they could be seen everywhere in the historical district. Located along the bayfront near the fort. 2 1/2 mile tours Phone: (904) 829-2818
after a day of kayaking, it's important to stretch out those muscles. Here is a stretching routine:
1. be very pretty
2. get into a tiny bikini for maximum comfort
Favorite thing: The city is ablaze with holiday lights from the Saturday before Thanksgiving through the end of January. Over 1,500,000 light bulbs decorate over 30 public buildings and parks.
