A Day In St. Augustine

Although it may be quite a haul for some students, there is not much better than spending a nice day in St. Augustine. From historical landmarks, to locally owned shops and eateries, there’s more than enough to see and do.

When you go to St. Augustine, there are free and paid ways to experience the town. Visitors can rent bikes, segways, ride touring trolleys, or just walk the streets to get around. If you’re looking for a free version of seeing the city, there are plenty of places that are free to check out. You can see the intercoastal waterway and the outside of the Castillo De San Marcos. The shops along St. George Street are also a big tourist area and are home to many different kinds of shops and restaurants.

While visiting St. Augustine recently we checked out the Cathedral Basilica of St. Augustine. It was recognized as a Basilica by Pope John Paul II in the 1990’s. Many visitors come to see the history and beauty of the church. Also next to the church was a small art shop that had pieces on display and were for sale.

Now, if you’re looking to do some things that cost money, there are also many fun things to do. Two of the biggest attractions in the city itself are the Castillo De San Marcos, and the St. Augustine lighthouse. The rates of entry for both vary on when you go, but they do offer student pricing, so you can get a discount that way.

Visitors can take the tour trolleys through town that give a narrated history of places your visit, or even visit the world famous Ripley’s Believe It Or Not museum.
