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!

Make sure to stop by Flagler college’s main campus which is well-known for originally being a huge, high-end hotel!

This town has blocks of art galleries, museums, specialty stores, and waterfront restaurants as well as pubs and taverns. Keep in mind the fair majority of stores and museums in the market and historic district close around 5pm so plan an early excursion!

Antoinette’s Bathhouse is filled with unique and handcrafted soap. This gem trumps cookie-cutter, name brand stores like Lush in both quality and price.
