Pit Stop in St. Augustine, Florida

 

Just over an hour drive from Orlando, St. Augustine, Florida is small. So small that getting around on foot is too easy. Take advantage of the free street parking, wear comfortable shoes, and get lost in the art, history, and quaintness of this small town!

Our tourist map, going from one end to the other probably took us a whopping five minutes!
