With so many great things to do in St. Augustine and the surrounding area, we’ve compiled a list of 10 of our favorite things to do in St. Augustine this summer!

  1. Visit the St. Augustine Beach!  The beaches are beautiful, and guests staying at the Casa de Suenos Bed and Breakfast (or the St. Francis Inn) have exclusive access to the St. Augustine Beach itself via Our Beach Cottage.
  2. Visit The Fountain of Youth Archaeological Park – it’s the actual site of the first settlement in America. It was settled 42 years before Jamestown and well- before the Pilgrims arrived at Plymouth Rock. Don’t miss your opportunity to drink from Ponce de Leon’s Spring of Eternal Hope, either!
  3. Visit the St. Augustine Alligator Farm. It’s one of those quintessential Florida experiences that you really must have.
  4. Visit the Castillo San Marcos National Monument, which was built by the Spanish colonists in 1672. It’s the oldest masonry fort in the country, and offers some really beautiful views as well, especially at sunset.
  5. Meander down St. George Street in St. Augustine’s Historic District, easily ranked as one of the best things to do in St. Augustine. It’s a pedestrian-only zone filled to the brim with shops, restaurants, and art galleries.  Cool off with some handmade popsicles at The Hyppo.
  6. Take a ghost tour!  St. Augustine is considered to be one of America’s most haunted cities, and there are a number of ghost tours offered around town. The Ghosts and Gravestones tour is the one we recommend the most often. We even have our own friendly ghost at the St. Francis Inn!
  7. Visit the World Golf Hall of Fame, and maybe even take in a few holes of your own on any number of St. Augustine Golf Courses.
  8. Enjoy a bit of wine tasting at the San Sebastian Winery, which isn’t very far from our Inn.
  9. Kayak, birdwatch, and relax at the beautiful Anastasia State Park. The park features 1600 acres of pristine white-sand beaches, tidal marshes, and maritime hammocks. It’s easy to see why this is one of the top things to do in St. Augustine.
  10. Head out to St. Augustine’s Lighthouse and Maritime Museum. It’s a stunning and historic reminder of St. Augustine’s past, and from the top, you’ll enjoy sweeping views of downtown St. Augustine.
