Some attractions are free and some have a small admission fee, it's up to you to pick and choose what is of most interest to you. This familiarization tour of "old town" is meant to give an overview of it's history and landmarks. Saint Augustine, Florida is the oldest European city in the United States. The area was first visited by Ponce de Leon in 1513. Don't miss St. George Street, a trolley stop and a quaint shopping area with everything from local crafts, antiques, fine jewelry and much more. For those wishing to remain in the historic district for dinner (on your own) this evening, our bus will offer one scheduled pick-up to return to the hotel.

There are many different things to see and do in St. Augustine and you will receive a detailed map of the trolley route and the attractions found at each stop. A do-not-miss attraction is the Mission of Nombre de Dios & Shrine of Our Lady of Leche. St. Augustine has many beautiful, old churches you'll want to visit. The mission has a great cross at 208 feet high. Built to commemorate the 400th Anniversary of the first parish mass. This cross has stood for over 45 years welcoming visitors.
