I love this town, Not only do they have great schools, it is absolutly beautiful and full of fun and beautiful sights to see. St. Augustine has some of the best food I have ever had and fun Restaurants... Just try Santa Marias on the water. Great food, simple and affordable, they give you a basket of bread to feed to the birds and fish through a latch next to your table. The restaurant is surrounded with large windows on the bay and you can see dolphins swimming by daily. Then there is st george street where you can by all kinds of touristy fun stuff or tour the old buildings, ride trollys, eat ice cream buy yummy fudge or just people watch. Go visit the fort, or the wax museum, the old jail or ride one of the many horse anf buggys. Just have fun and soak in the history, and if you get a chance be sure to visit the holy lands. they are amazing and beautiful.
My fiance and myself booked a hotel(the country inn Carlson). There were many hotels/motels to choose from with price ranges $42 a night all the eas to $350 a night. Some beachfront, some right in the middle of town. There were also many bed and breakfasts. There were many attractions to choose from. St Augustine happens to be the 3rd most haunted city in the u.s. we took a ghost tour by trolley which lead us by 2 graveyards, the haunted lighthouse, where we got out.to walk around, and lastly the old jailhouse. There we got out of the trolley where we met a guide who was one of the "inmates" who was hung in the jail. He was Awsome!! We also visited ripleys which was pretty fun if u took the time to read the stories. There was also some hands.on activities. We went to the alligator farm which was well worth the money. We got up close to hundreds of different alligators, crocodiles, birds, monkeys, and snakes. The albino alligators were pretty neat as well as the komodo dragon and the bridge where u walk over literally hundreds of gators under you. It just so happens that this time of year there are hundreds of birds nesting in the trees right above this gator pit!! O was literally within hands reach of a nest of babies!! Great for pictures. We also got to see the feeding of maximo the salt water croc. That night we took another ghost tour with ripleys. It's was also very fun. Throughout the 2 days we walked all over downtown old st Augustine. There were so many shops.
