Over four centuries of unique history have made St. Augustine a frequently sought destination for historians and artists alike. However, attractions in the Old City only begin with standing artifacts like the Castillo de San Marco and the Lightner Museum.
Along with many white sandy beaches, St. Augustine’s diverse physical geography present an opportune chance for nature lovers to explore North Florida’s wildlife. Swim with the dolphins at Marineland, zip-line over hundreds of reptiles at the Alligator Farm Zoological Park or get to know the estuarine life at a free event hosted by the Guana Tolomato Matanzas Estuarine Research Reserve.
Looking to get out of the sun for a few hours? Cool down under a canopy of oaks at one of the pristine golf courses in the area and follow it up with a tour of the World Golf Hall of Fame to impress your business partners! If you’re exploring the Old City with your family, don’t miss out on a haunted ghost tour, photo opportunities at Potter’s Wax museum, and especially a trip to Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Museum.
