"St. Augustine" Top 5 Page for this destination United States of America Off The Beaten Path Tip by richiecdisc

  Florida's oldest city
by richiecdisc

St. Augustine represents a bit of a departure from the average Florida attraction; it doesn't revolve around the beach, water sports, theme parks beyond your imagination or endless partying. Its staid demeanor sits paradoxically within a Florida holiday and its historical significance sits like a jeweled crown in a box rather than on its formidable head. But this incongruity should not deter the traveler fed up with the status quo of Floridian sights and desiring some culture in this otherwise vast sea of mindless boggle. Forget Walt Disney for a few days and give your shriveled skin a break. Step into a bygone era in the most unlikely place, St. Augustine, FL, America's oldest city.
