South of Jacksonville and Ponte Vedra lies St. Augustine, known as the oldest continually occupied city in the United States. Founded in 1565, St. Augustine today is a unique mix of tourist attractions, historic sites and eclectic communities. From newer communities like World Golf Village to the exclusive Camachee Island and beachfront homes along A1A/Coastal Highway, St. Augustine has something for everyone.
Some highlights of the area include:
- Flagler College – Check out the college’s centerpiece, the former Hotel Ponce de Leon, built in 1888 by Henry Flagler
- Castillo de San Marcos – More than 333 years old, the fort was built by the Spanish to protect their settlement in St. Augustine
- The Lightner Museum
- St. Augustine Alligator Farm
- St. Augustine Amphitheatre
…and much, much more.
