How to Get Around Historic St. Augustine

There are a few ways to get yourself around St. Augustine. If you have a car, you can explore the outer edges and beaches, but keep in mind that the Historic District of Old Town St. Augustine is pedestrian only. You can park around the perimeter of the historic district at one of the many parking meters (hourly rate only), or you can park at the parking garage located at 1 Cordova Street (hourly/daily rate) next to the Visitors Center.

PRO TRAVEL TIP: Pick up a St. Augustine sightseeing map and guide right away so you can start planning out your adventure in the city.

Old Town St. Augustine is very walkable, but you can also hop on Ripley’s Red Train Trolley Tour if you don’t want to do a lot of walking. The trolley takes you to all the main tourist spots.

For a bit of romance and nostalgia, perhaps try one of the horse-drawn carriage rides for a short tour around the city.

St. Augustine Hotels — Where to Stay

When it comes to where to stay in St Augustine, there are many options to choose from, but the St George Inn is one of our top picks.

If you want a quieter stay right on the beach, the Pearl of the Sea is an excellent choice. Located on Crescent Beach, this Mediterranean style waterfront bed and breakfast is close to Anastasia State Park and has only 13 guestrooms. Here, you can relax in the hot tub or take a dip in the sparkling pool with a swim-up bar or explore the grounds. Take a trip to the St. Augustine Lighthouse and Museum or the St. Augustine Alligator Farm Zoological Park which are both about ten miles away.

The Tryp by Wyndham is full of all the amenities you have come to know with this popular hotel chain. This property is located in the waterfront and is walking distance from many popular St Augustine attractions like the San Sebastian Winery and Whetstone Chocolate Factory. There is a buffet breakfast and an impressive Spanish restaurant on site, named 333.
