Our St. Augustine vacation rentals give visitors a front-row seat to the history, 19th-century Spanish architecture, and rich heritage of the nation’s oldest city, perched along the First Coast of Florida!
The city offers Old World charm with narrow brick streets, colonial forts, and towering cathedrals, yet is only 40 miles from the urban center of Jacksonville! Whether you're viewing mummies and shrunken heads at the Lightner Museum, motorcycles made of bones at Ripley’s Believe it or Not! Odditorium, or sunbathing at the St. Augustine Beach, this charming city offers something for everyone!
Historic St. Augustine Attractions
You'll fall in love with the history and romance of times past while staying in a St. Augustine vacation rental! The historic center comes alive at St. George Street, a cobble-stone pedestrian way with pubs, restaurants, and shopping. Perhaps the highest must-do item on any history buff's list is a visit to the Castillo de San Marcos National Monument, the oldest masonry fort in the U.S.
Families will appreciate the many ways that St. Augustine makes history fun for all ages. Climb aboard El Galeon Andalucia, a 16th-century Spanish pirate ship, or head to the St. Augustine Lighthouse and Museum. Dig for gold at the St. Augustine Pirate & Treasure Museum, book a haunted pub tour with Ghost Augustine, go island-bound at Fort Matanzas National Monument, and learn about the Civil Rights movement on the Freedom Trail. Wherever you explore, history and culture abound!
St. Augustine Adventures
Adventure comes in many forms, from feeding alligators or sampling flight of whiskey, and you can do it all in a St. Augustine! Discover exotic reptiles and exhibits at the St. Augustine Alligator Farm and watch a tiger take a bubble bath at the St. Augustine Wild Reserve. Sample vodka, rum, gin, and whisky at the St. Augustine Distillery, or plan a kayaking and sailing trip with St. Augustine Eco Tours. Let your adrenaline guide you in this historic city!
Whether you're combing over ancient rubble, sunbathing along the great Atlantic, or sipping beer with the nation's oldest ghosts, St. Augustine vacation rentals offer excitement and Old World charm. Discover another side of The Sunshine State!
