St. Augustine may be the “oldest” city in America, but that doesn’t mean that the fun is in any way outdated. For those folks who aren’t quite ready to give up the summer, enjoy the wonderful beaches and amazing tropical weather. Become cultured with the multitude of museums and walking tours, or snap some shots of the wildlife at the zoological park.
With this St Augustine travel guide, you will feel the experience of a first-timer with the knowledge and confidence of a local. Let this guide be your ticket to a full experience of one of Florida’s liveliest cities at an affordable cost for you and your fellow travelers.
The first and most obvious thing you should do is consider what you’re actually going down there for. A St. Augustine vacation is completely worthwhile for the sites and the culture, but it’s going to be beneficial to you in the long run to find out what interests your travel partners have and what you’re personally trying to get out of your St. Augustine vacation.
The second thing you should consider is where you’re going to stay. Remember, there are plenty of options outside of the pricey hotel rooms and unpredictable Airbnb’s out there. Consider renting or owning a St Augustine timeshare; that way, you’ll have access top-quality amenities, spacious accommodations, and the financial comfort and security that comes with a timeshare rental.
Lastly, make sure you’re fully prepared for ground travel. Public transportation is common and the Sunshine Bus Company is a great way to move around the city. If you’re feeling ambitious or would like to be active, consider renting bikes! You’ll get some exercise while getting the best, closest views of the coastline!
St. Augustine is certainly a walkable city; whether you’re exploring Flagler College for a self-imposed architecture tour, strolling through the shops at St. George Street, or bar hopping from restaurant to restaurant, you’ll see things everywhere you go. But if you’re looking to build your day around a special activity, let us recommend a few of the more exciting things around the area.
If you want to get the most out of your vacation while simultaenously getting the most out of your budget, we’d highly recommend a St. Augustine timeshare rental, as mentioned above. You can get everything with a St Augustine vacation rental including full kitchens, bedrooms, bathrooms, and private balconies. If you are planning on returning on a yearly basis, however, then a St. Augustine timeshare resale might be the more cost-effective option.
Here are a few St. Augustine timeshare properties we’d recommend:
