St. Augustine, FL


Going to Florida is such a fun experienced! We haven't explore the entire state yet but we plan to do so whenever we move really soon there for good this time. I am so thrilled and anxious when that day comes because i want to go visit again to this town in north east of Florida. I have to say one of the awesome town I've ever seen! St. Augustine or San Agustin in Spanish is indeed a historical place. One of the oldest town that the Spaniards ever landed in the USA, it was first explored in early 1513 to late fifteenth hundred.

I was really ecstatic and excited upon entering the town, feeling you are in an old town with lots of magnificent historical buildings and monuments! That structures on the above picture is the first one thing to welcome you while heading to the beautiful bridge ahead. You can see the preservation of old town,  the old seaport is still intact and became the heart of the city tourist and visitors loves to see it up close and personal. Also the marina bay view has the ancient pirates boats display and lots more to discover! The historical town was pack that day, they have the museum of Ripley's Believe It or Not! Trolleys around downtown squares for easy tours, you can just parked your car and a trolley awaits you! Can spend the entire day roaming, strolling, sight seeing and picture taking! Can't wait to visit with families there again i bet they will having so much fun! I tell you so much to see and do... there's no way you gonna get bored in St. Augustine, Florida! Well, enough said the pictures speak for it self! Wink.

this reminds me of the place up north to called mackinaw island. They have tons of classic display of Spanish era. I've been to Florida and indeed love the state. I was looking forward to check St. Augustine sometimes soon.

We were in Florida like 3 years ago, but didn't really get to travel much of the state. That is one beautiful place to explore. We were only in Venice, Florida and went to a water park in Tampa and also enjoyed a lot of beach time. Oh the ocean! I so miss the ocean. Lovely photos! :)

looks like a great city and from the name itself, seems like spaniards had colonized the area and became a spanish historical place
