A Day in Historic St. Augustine
And the Best Breakfast in Town
The oldest city in the United States, St. Augustine is famed for its stunning Spanish Colonial architecture and deep historical roots. A city that’s 456 years old is bound to have its ghosts, so for a taste of history and the supernatural, try the Walking Ghost Tour of St Augustine. Or, if oddities are more your thing, head to the original Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Museum and browse their impressive collection of stranger-than-fiction artifacts.
Speaking of museums, there are a lot of them around here; in fact, downtown St. Augustine is something of an artifact itself. The Walking History Tour of St. Augustine’s Historic District is a great way to explore the past with a local historian, but if that sounds like too much walking, the St. Augustine Hop-On Hop-Off Trolley Tour is a charming alternative.
Between all the historical sites and gorgeous natural parks, you’ll have a full day ahead or behind you— stop by Metro Diner for a belly full of classics like Fish & Chips, Chicken Pot Pie, Chicken Tenders, a Classic Burger or Double Decker Metro Club. One of each? Why not!
