Centuries of history blend with serene coastal beauty.

History meets beachy vibes in St. Augustine, Florida. In September 1565, a Spanish ship docked on the Atlantic coast in what would become Florida, and the town of St. Augustine was born. The oldest European-founded city in the United States, today, this Florida locale attracts everyone from sun worshippers to history-loving vacationers with its centuries-old churches, museums and pristine shoreline. Architecture buffs will also appreciate the wide diversity of homes and buildings that line the cobblestone streets.
