St. Augustine, Florida
We made a few stops while driving through St. Augustine, Florida. We wanted to spend more time in the area, but after spending 3 days in the Flagler Hospital, we just wanted to continue our vacation and head South 🙂 Read more about what happened on my “Florida Road Trip” photo blog.
Info about St. Augustine, Florida
St. Augustine’s rich heritage makes the city and its surroundings a unique getaway for visitors. Founded in September 1565 by Don Pedro Menendez de Aviles of Spain, St. Augustine is the longest continually inhabited European-founded city in the United States – more commonly called the “Nation’s Oldest City.” Visit St. Augustine and dive into more than four centuries of history that owes much to the Spanish and English, to Greeks and Native Americans and African Americans. Stroll the narrow lanes, enter the many museums, visit landmarks such as Castillo de San Marcos, Ponce de Leon’s “Fountain of Youth,” and the Oldest Wooden Schoolhouse. St. Augustine – a place for history buffs and everyone else.
St. Augustine, Florida Pictures
Here are a few of the pictures that I was able to take. There’s so much more to this city than what I was able to capture. Maybe someday, I’ll head back that way and spend some more time there. Here are a few pictures of the lighthouse, the shoreline, the Flager Beach Pier (South of St. Augustine), a local Castle, and even a road covered in trees with Spanish Moss on them 🙂
