St. Augustine was founded in 1565 and is the oldest city
in the United States. It's an exceptional town with
palm-lined beaches, excellent restaurants, an active
nightlife, and tons of shopping. Yet it is the history
of the city that is its main draw.
St. Augustine contains a remarkable collection of
historical buildings, some dating as far back as the
1500s. It has one of the country's best preserved forts,
the oldest wooden schoolhouse in the country, several
museums, and a two-square-block recreated Spanish
village, complete with "interpreters" re-enacting
18th-century life. In all, there are over 60 themed
attractions that bring to life the history of the Old
St. Augustine is the perfect city for a romantic getaway
or a fun family vacation. The city offers eclectic
restaurants with a large variety of cuisine including
Asian, Cajun and French cooking. The winding,
cobblestone streets of the historic district are lined
with art galleries, antique and gift shops. After your
shopping be sure to save time for the beach which has
car access in several places, allowing you to find the
perfect beach spot to enjoy the sun and waves!
The St. Augustine region enjoys year round warm
temperatures. Classified as a semi-tropical climate with
hot and humid summers, the northeast coast receives lots
of showers and thunderstorms in the summer, and cooling
ocean breezes help moderate temperatures. Thunderstorms
are usually localized and short, and therefore do not
interfere with outdoor plans too often. The rainy season
runs May through October, with September generally being
the wettest month. Winters are sunny, dry and mild with
cool evenings. On average there are 24 days of each
month in winter that are dry.
