St. Augustine is home to some of the most stunning displays of nature, unique history and diverse cultural pursuits. The people of Florida include life-long residents to newly settled people from around the world. There’s much to love about living on the coast of Florida.
Historic St Augustine
St. Augustine has a well-known deep and rich history. The Spanish influence is very present today in part because it was preserved and enriched during the late 1800s. The construction of stunningly beautiful hotels for wealthy tourists have been integrated into the fabic of modern St Augustine by re-using the buildings as a college and city offices. The fort; Castillo de San Marcos is preserved as a historic landmark by the National Park Service. St Augustine is like no other small coastal city in America. Tourism is still a large industry, but it’s the residents that have a deep love and appreciation for this coastal beauty.
St Augustine Beach
St. Augustine area beaches have a lure to them – like a sirens song. Fluffy white clouds entice daydreamers to linger a bit longer while the gulls dodge the surf and beach dwellers stroll along the shore collecting or observing. The lighthouse sits majestically on Anatasia Island as a beacon of safety even in this day.
