Things to do in St. Augustine, Florida. Amazing food and experiences on a budget.

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.


Budget tip:

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.
