    Bed and food at St Augustine

    by gwened Written May 30, 2012

    Favorite thing: nice area, live for many years down from there in Ormond by the Sea and spent many weekends there with family.

    There is accommodation B&B that are very nice there, this site will tell you all lovely places
    http://www.bedandbreakfast.com/fr/saint-augustine-florida.html

    be known the best beach or St Augustine Beach is a bit south over the bridge of lions. there is many interesting places to see like Ripley's,and oldest house, oldest school, Lighter and villa zorayda museums.

    St George ave is full of shops lovely, and the Columbia Spanish resto is the outlet of the oldest Spanish resto in Florida (Tampa).
    Casa Alcazar inside the lighter museum is great resto as it is Old Town Wine Cellar on St George,and for inexpensive stuff try Der Pretzel Haus off Hypolita.

    Hope it helps your planning

    Fondest memory: walking st George st and go over the bridge of lions into the castle Fort Matanzas ,and eating at Columbia restaurant

    Visitor Center

    by BruceDunning Written Jun 12, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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.

    Aerial view of King Street, looking east

    by barkybite Updated Oct 31, 2004

    Favorite thing: 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.

    Elegance in poured concrete.

    by Espresso_girl Written May 8, 2003

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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.

    St Augustine is for lovers

    by sablemarie Written Sep 30, 2002

    Favorite thing: 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...

    GONE WITH THE WIND

    by Helga67 Written Feb 25, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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'
