St. Augustine’s one of a kind historic downtown district encompasses 400+ year old structures, many of which house specialty shops as well as an extensive collection of bistros and cafes. Visit the Castillo de San Marcos, a centuries old Spanish fortress restored to its former glory of over 300 years ago.

The newly remodeled St. Augustine Outlets is the perfect shopping getaway for locals and visitors alike. Shoppers will experience a diverse selection of stores like Saks Fifth Avenue OFF 5TH, Michael Kors, Talbots, Kate Spade New York, H&M, Old Navy Outlet and Lucky Brand Jeans.

Visitors can wander down the cobblestone streets of the downtown district to find scores of art galleries, quaint shops and music venues to quench their thirst for culture.  The city’s art scene continues to thrive with popular monthly art walks, local breweries, winery and distillery.

St. Augustine’s beaches stretch more than twenty miles from Vilano Beach to Crescent Beach. Along these beaches are waterfront restaurants that allow you to pull your boat right up to the restaurant’s public dock and head in for a delicious dining experience.

Ponte Vedra and Jacksonville Beach lie just a short, 30-minute drive up the coast and has its own experiences to offer, with a one-of-a-kind beach walk, as well as modern shopping.
