Historic Downtown St. Augustine has many buildings dating back to the 1700s or earlier. In fact, the Historic Downtown district and twenty other sites in the area (including the Alcazar Hotel and the Ximenez-Fatio House) are on the National Register of Historic Places.
This area offers a variety of attractions, from stores and boutiques to museums, churches, dining establishments, and live music venues. If it’s water views you’re after, you’ll enjoy the striking bayfront, which offers panoramic views of Matanzas Bay.
Take it easy with a leisurely walk along the Matanzas River, starting at the Castillo de San Marcos and winding up at the perfect spot to grab lunch. We recommend Harry’s Seafood or the Bayfront Inn.
Visit the Colonial Quarter or take an architecture tour. This is, after all, home to some of the most striking examples of Spanish Colonial and Spanish Renaissance Revival architecture in the country, with dashes of Florida bungalow-style and Gilded Age buildings thrown in.
