Welcome to Florida’s Historic Coast, also known as St. Augustine and Ponte Vedra Beach, the oldest continuously occupied European settlement in the United States.
St Augustine was settled by Spanish explorers in 1565, but it has also been home to many cultures, Native American, Greek, Minorcan, French and British.
You’ll find this diversity influences everything from food to architecture, shopping to entertainment and, of course, the many festivals and special events enjoyed year round by visitors and locals alike.
At the Castillo de San Marcos, park rangers and re-enactors share 18th century stories about what it was like to serve in the Spanish colonial military, with cannon firings take place Thursdays to Saturdays.
You’ll find Old World charm along brick lined streets and Spanish Colonial architecture. Plus, in addition to unique history, you'll find a foodie paradise with a burgeoning dining scene, adding to the romance of this magical place.
Arts, culture and, nature, music and entertainment, there’s something for everyone here. Plus don't forget that the St Augustine area offers 42 miles of beautiful beaches of white quartz sand offering fun for the entire family.
A visit to Florida’s Historic Coast will help you re connect with family, friends and loved ones.
