St Augustine, FL

Today’s spotlight is the quaint and historic “Oldest City”
St Augustine, FL

I recently had the opportunity to revisit some of the sights of this landmark destination, and so-called “one tank trip”, and thought it would be nice of me to share some of my experiences, pictures, and suggestions! What a guy :)

First, some geography.  The main, historic part of St Augustine sits near the mouth of the Matanzas River and close to the Atlantic Ocean.  It is a jam-packed 10 square mile city with an abundance of history, and culture. You can of course read far more about the city on Wikipedia.

Next, a brief mention of some of the timeshares and vacation properties that I found — with more information on St Augustine Resorts and even some eBay listings.  The major
player as far as I can tell, and I am admittedly far from an expert, is probably the “Resort at World Golf Village” and it sits just north of the city conveniently off I-95.

The Bridge of Lions, Flagler College, Lighthouse, Cathedral Basilica, countless museums, and of course the Castillo de San Marcos were all highly enjoyable and majestic, as always. Also, the “Main Street” through downtown was calm, welcoming, and had an especially nice wine tasting from Vino del Grotto Winery, and a slice of home, er cuban churro and cafe con leche from The Cuban Bakery was a nice surprise.

There is so much more to see here. If you haven’t already, do yourself a favor and at least go there once – you won’t regret it!  And hey, you might find some good vacation rentals on SellerLink.net or somewhere else to make it more affordable.

I’d love to hear any comments from you guys so please post away.
