Castillo de San Marcos

St. Augustine Beach is a terrific stepping off spot for so much Florida activity. Our Beach Lodgings are just 8 miles from the historic, culture, and activities of the city of St. Augustine. Cross the Intracoastal Waterway via the old Bridge of Lions and discover 11 blocks of pedestrian-only traffic along quaint St. George Street, lined by 18th century homes which are now historic landmarks, unique shops, and excellent restaurants. Explore the Old City's brick-lined streets, tour a historic church, walk along the beautiful bayfront, learn about early Spanish and English settlers, see historic buildings which lured northerners for winter vacations a century ago.

Visit Castillo de San Marcos (1695), the nation's oldest and only remaining 17th century stone fort, a National Historic Monument which you can tour inside and out. Horse and buggy rides provide a unique way to absorb the stories of yesteryear, evening ghost tours delight you with their tales, and a bayfront cruise can give you yet another perspective of this beautiful ancient city. The city's calendar is filled with special events, pageants, re-enactments, and celebrations of history and culture, including Nights of Lights which baths the Old City with sparkling white holiday lights, Fourth of July fireworks over the bayfront, and much more. Tour a winery, a distillery, a chocolate factory, a nature sanctuary, a pirate ship, or dozens of art galleries. There are festivals of all sorts: cultural, historic, heritage, food, arts & crafts, sports, and others. There are historic buildings, cemeteries, museums, churches, and forts. We'll help you find out what's happening during your stay with us.
