Over 40 Miles Of Beach
One of the best parts of visiting the St Augustine area is that you do not need to go far to find yourself lounging on a beach and soaking in the sun. The top free attraction in the state is the beautiful sandy beaches that line our coast. All you need is a pair of shades and a beach towel to have a good day by the water.
As a place with such a rich historical and artistic background, St Augustine is full of places that you can find live music at. Tap your toes and feel the beat with events like Music By The Sea that happens every Wednesday night from May through September at St Johns County Ocean Pier. There are also local businesses like Prohibition Kitchen that have in-house live music.
Though it is known for beautiful weddings and as a women’s exchange, the Pena-Peck House of St Augustine has always held a strong presence in the history of the city. In 1750, one of St Augustine’s greatest treasures was built and is still a popular site for visitors today. With a long history that dates back to nearly the settlement of St Augustine, the building has had a long history of being a home, museum, and venue for special events.
Castillo de San Marcos National Monument
Take a journey through time by visiting the Castillo de San Marcos National Monument and discover a staple of the area’s historic structures. With cannons that remain at the ready from battles that have long ago passed and the original walls still holding their lines, this monument is one that represents an important part of our cultural timeline. You can tour and explore the fort and view weapons demonstrations and more.
St. Augustine Pirate & Treasure Museum
A fun place for all ages is the St Augustine Pirate and Treasure Museum. Explore exhibits of swords, treasure, and more from real life pirates. Discover the history of St Augustine and surrounding areas when pirates frequented the area in the early days of settlement.
