This was my second visit to St. Augustine, and I would go back. The shopping is great, as well as the attractions and history of the city. Lots of places to eat, and if you can't find something you like, then you aren't looking very hard.

Many things to do and see. Great for a weekend getaway. We travel here at least once a year. Even time after time we still find new things to see and explore.

Having been to many historic cities around the world, St. Augustine Old City is really fun. Lots of beautiful old Spanish architecture and cottages. Of course, there are some tourist traps as well. Plus many very good restaurants with live music.

Great place just to walk around, look at the architecture, go into the shops, or just people watch. The place is so large you're always finding something new. During the holidays there is a big Christmas light display. This is the reason you visit St. Augustine.
