The Historic District Is 10 Minutes Away!

Founded in 1565, St. Augustine is the oldest continuously occupied settlement of European origin in the United States. Cross the Bridge of Lions into the Old City, then take a buggy ride through the Historic District with its narrow cobblestone streets, balconied houses and numerous historical sites, reflecting its Spanish origins.  There you will also find quaint cafes, bars and unique shops.

The St. Augustine Visitor Information Center is located at the edge of the Historic District across from Castillo de San Marcos.  Parking is easily accessible and it should be your first stop to learn more about the Old City.

Here are just a few of the many things you can visit in downtown St. Augustine. For more information visit  www.staugustineattractions.net
