We spent a night in Saint Augustine during our 2009 trip from Pennsylvania to Tampa. We arrived in the evening and checked into our hotel, the Holiday Inn. We went across the street to Mardi Gras biker/sports bar and enjoyed a few beers before grabbing a great dinner at Raintree Restaurant. After dinner we stopped by Mardi Gras again for a nightcap, then go some sleep.

The next day we explored old town, spending most of our time at the Castillo de San Marcos. We also had breakfast in the historic district before heading out of town on the beach front road to Daytona.

Laura and I returned to St. Augustine in July 2010. We stayed at a great little B&B in the middle of Old town called 44 Spanish Street. Before checking in, we stopped by the old lighthouse and the Castillo. After checking in, we explored many of the area's bars and restaurants including A1A Brewery, Meehan's Irish Pub, Harry's Seafood, and the Tasting room. The next day, we drove north to explore the tiny port town called Mayport, before returning to Tampa via Orlando.

    Wish I could remember more about my visit as a kid in the 1980s. I do remember the old fortress though, and a few other things.

    Excellent page on this historic town. I made a brief visit to St. Augustine back in 2003. Thanks for the tips and binging back some memories...
