St. Augustine | Florida


Thomas's cousin got married in Tallahassee on May 15th. our anniversary is on the 17th of May so we figured since we would already be down south we might as well detour to Savannah, Georgia for our second anniversary. so after the wedding, we drove halfway and stayed just outside of Jacksonville. on Saturday morning we decided to explore St. Augustine since check in wasn't until 3pm in Savannah.

i had never been to St. Augustine but it is definitely a place i would like to visit again. it is such a fun city even though it is pretty hot. i am thinking next time i visit it will be in the off season because i can't do Florida in the summer. :)

St. Augustine is the oldest continuously occupied European settlement in the US. it still looks like an old city with the little shops & cobblestone streets. there are even a few people dressed up as colonials. it has a really neat feel! we also got to explore an old Fort so that was cool. plus, we got to witness a drawbridge in action as we were walking across it!

  2. I visited St. Augustine when I was really young; I barely remember it! I really need to go back now that I'm old enough to truly appreciate it!

  3. I've been to St. Augustine a couple times. Last time, we didn't go inside the fort though. Looks like you had a blast...despite the heat :) Hope you enjoyed Savannah...I've always wanted to visit there!
