I was born and raised here in St. Augustine. From our historical downtown,(considering it is the nation's oldest city) to the beautiful beaches, St, Augustine is the perfect little town. Although it is quite the tourist town, so there is always a great amount of people roaming around this little town. But who could blame them, I'd want to vacation here too! We have the only two forts in the world built with Coquina, which are Castillo De San Marcos and Fort Matanzas. There are so many options for anyone to do here in St. Augustine, Florida. I am so glad I have lived here my whole life

Beautiful city! Has a little bit of everything, a historic area full of education and history. Beaches that provide an adventure shark teeth hunting and meeting mermaids. Wonderful state parks to show off the different types of plants and wildlife in the area. There is something for everyone here.
I love it here! St. Augustine is one of the most welcoming/historical places to be in! There are amazing restaurants, schools, places to visit or hangout, and activities . In St.Augustine, they have the most friendliest people.
