2 days in the oldest city in the US. Where to stay, what to eat, and what to see.
St. Augustine is America's oldest city, and a favorite weekend trip for many across the state of Florida & Georgia. From the shopping, food, ghost tours and more, there is plenty to see on your weekend here.
I recently spent my 27th Birthday Weekend here, and this is what I'd suggest for a 2 day itinerary if you want to sample a bit of everything that the city has to offer.
Staying in the historic district will put you close to all the action, but it will also cost you an arm and a leg. I'd suggest grabbing a budget option over at the beach.
Although it means that you'll have to drive into town (about a 10 minute drive), you'll also be able to get away from all the flocks of people at the end of the day and enjoy a slower start to your morning. A super nice bonus, you get to drive over the bridge and tons of sailboats every morning on your way into town.
Don't worry, there is a super convenient all day parking garage right next to all the action, so bringing the car into town isn't a problem at all.
