St. Augustine has long been on my checklist of places to visit. It’s tough to consider yourself a history buff and not make a trip to America’s oldest city at some point in your life. That said, I was glad I visited early on a Sunday morning, even if the museums were closed (although I had a dog with me and wouldn’t have been able to go inside), because I had free roam of the old town area and knocked out everything I wanted to see in less than two hours. I parked catty-corner to Flagler College then did a blitz through their courtyard (amazing), over to the plaza in front of the Lightner Musuem (amazing), zig and zagged over to Aviles Street, the oldest street in America, back tracked up to the Plaza de la Constitucion, the Governor’s House, and Cathedral Basillica St. Augustine, then walked up George Street and back down Spanish Street.
From there I drove over to Castillo de San Marcos and again snagged a parking spot right out front. Walked around the exterior with Annie. Snapped a few photos. And boom that’s how you crush St. Augustine in less than two hours.
