There are so many things to do and see in St. Augustine that you just can’t see everything in one day. But if you only have a limited time, here are some of the must see things.
- Castillo de San Marcos – A monument not only of stone and mortar but of human determination and endurance, the Castillo de San Marcos symbolizes the clash between cultures which ultimately resulted in our uniquely unified nation.
- St. Augustine Lighthouse & Museum – The St. Augustine Lighthouse & Museum is dedicated to discovering, preserving, presenting and keeping alive the story of the nation’s oldest port. Walk up to the top for a breathtaking view or if you are lucky enough to be here during a full moon be sure to get your reservation for the Sunset, Moonrise!
- Flagler College Tour – Historic Tours of Flagler College highlight the architectural heritage of the former Hotel Ponce de Leon, listed as a National Historic Landmark. Built by railroad magnate, Henry M. Flagler in 1888, the Ponce is considered one of the finest examples of Spanish Renaissance architecture and was one of the most exclusive resorts of its day.
- St. Augustine Alligator Farm – Educational programs every hour, alligator feedings (you can feed the smaller ones). Crocodile Crossing Zip Line – zipping right over alligators and crocodiles. Fun for the entire family
- The Ximenez-Fatio House – The Ximenez-Fatio House Museum is one of St. Augustine’s oldest historic properties. The museum complex is located on Aviles Street, America’s first platted thoroughfare, in the center of the city’s oldest community, the Old Town area south of the Plaza. The property includes a ca. 1798 coquina stone House, the region’s only detached coquina kitchen building, and a reconstructed ca. 1802 wash house.
