St. Augustine: Explore History

Florida, St. Augustine Guide (B): St. Augustine: Explore History

My last visit on this Labor’s day weekend was to the oldest city of United States- St. Augustine located in north eastern part of Florida. This city gives you an endless opportunity to understand the Spanish and English culture. The old city has been converted into a museum. If you love History, then St. Augustine offers you plenty of things on your platter to explore.

We stayed at Radisson, Jacksonville which is 30 miles from St. Augustine. This Hotel is located off to Interstate I – 95, a beautiful hotel with modern amenities and a outdoor pool side view worth to watch. The buffet breakfast was amazing.

We reached St. Augustine around 9:30 AM and went to Old Trolley Tour counter. You will find various package available depending on day and night tours. This is the best way to explore the old city’s cobblestone streets, historical landmarks and pristine beaches. You can hop on and hop off at different sites depending upon your interest. The Trolley driver guides are very knowledgeable and friendly. They will give you each and every minute details regarding various landmarks. ......
