St Augustine

The city of St. Augustine, Florida, was founded in 1565 by Spanish explorer and admiral, Pedro Menéndez de Avilés. The city is the oldest continuously occupied European-established city and port in the continental United States. The city is a popular tourist destination, for its Spanish Colonial buildings as well as elite 19th century architecture. The city’s historic center is anchored around St. George Street, which is lined with historic homes from various periods. Some of these homes are reconstructions on the original site, but many are original buildings.

Saint Augustine, Florida, is located on “The First Coast”, which extends from Amelia Island in the north to Jacksonville, St. Augustine and Palm Coast in the south.
