Things to do in St. Augustine
The museum is a knockout, jammed with authentic antiquities: read Captain Kidd’s actual journal in a virtual touch-screen version, and see one of only two existing Jolly Roger flags. Don’t miss the souvenir shop.
In St. Augustine's Old Town, the city’s Mediterranean roots are most evident; take a time-warp stroll past the Castillo de San Marcos and the evocative Colonial Spanish Quarter.
Take a pit stop at the hokey but endearing Fountain of Youth. Who knows if the free slug of water is better than Botox, but it’s great fun.
Imposing 17th-century fort that makes a good jumping-off point for a walking tour of St. Augustine's 144-block historic downtown.
