Since the time I lived in St. Augustine(1991) the tourism has seemed to increase triple fold. I still am and will always be fond of this little old city. Although sadly, I can understand we people call it a tourist trap.
Listed are some touristy sites you can see here (and nowhere else):
Fountain of Youth
Oldest Wooden School House
Olde Drug Store
and as you can imagine the list goes on and on....
This college is located smack-dab in the middle of this charming city. The buildings are an eye pleasing site to behold especially since it used to be a hotel(Hotel Ponce de Leon) designed witha little help from Lewis Comfort Tiffany and Henry Flagler. It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.Tours run daily, year round.
I was seriously considering going to college here for Deaf Education... I still wonder what might of been....
St. Augustine has a very impressive School for the Deaf and Blind.
One of the lovely things about the town is that there is so much to do!
Vilano Beach and Anastasia Island are within driving distance and can be great for a day visit.
