St. Augustine is not only the oldest city in the nation; it is the most charismatic. A coveted desination for hundreds of years, it now entices modern-day explorers to discover its picturesque, well-charted territory and timeless treasures. With big city amenities and small-town charm, it enthralls history buffs, romantics, art-lovers, and epicureans alike.
Each time I stroll the narrow, brick-lined streets of this city I am reminded, at every turn, of its significance in the history of the country.... and the world. But unlike ancient remnants of civilizations past, studied and static in textbooks, this unique microcosm is dynamic. Along with indelible marks of conquistadors and pirates, philanthropic magnates and architectural marvels, here, fresh love blooms, cuisine is re-invented, creative juices flow, and new memories are made. Daily.
