Despite being the oldest continuously inhabited city in the country, St. Augustine offers the charm and friendliness of a small town. The area consists of old homes, new homes, country areas with no buildings, and waterfront areas, both public and private. While you’ll find a wealth of fascinating history, especially in the downtown historic area where little has changed over the centuries, you’ll also find modern attractions and amenities of a big city. It’s an ideal blend that quickly wins over visitors to the point where they settle in and become locals, enchanted by the neighborly atmosphere of St. Augustine.
When you think of Florida, it’s easy to think of beaches, thanks to the long coastline, and St. Augustine has 42 miles of beaches, with some great for surfing and others great for families and plenty in between. Yachtsman’s Point will be on Anastasia Island, which means you’re even closer to many of the beaches without having to cross a busy bridge. Plus, with the water access, you’ll find an array of activities to enjoy besides surfing and sunning. Combining the beaches and the parks, you can go hiking, biking, bird-watching, horseback riding, kayaking, fishing, swimming, water-skiing, power-boating, sailing, and more.
The city is a family friendly place where everyone can find something fun to do. There are playgrounds, dog parks, skateboard parks, and recreation centers, where you’ll find pools, sporting fields and courts. Not surprisingly, you’ll also find more than 15 golf courses in the area.
It’s not all sports and activities, though. You’ll find a wealth of arts and music. Music lovers will find plenty to enjoy, no matter the musical style. Besides the St. Augustine Amphitheatre where national and international major acts perform, you’ll be able to enjoy plenty of local music and events including the St. Augustine Music Festival, the Lincolnville Porch Festival, Concerts in the Plaza, and Music By the Sea, just to name a few.
Artists and writers have been drawn to the city for centuries. In the early 20th century St. Augustine was the home of the largest art colony in the south. Over the years, that has developed into today’s St. Augustine Arts Association. You’ll find plenty of places to view the work of artists from all over the world.
Add in weather that lets you enjoy a range of activities for much of the year, as well as events like the St. Augustine Film Festival, and the St. Augustine Food and Wine Festival, as well as everything else mentioned, and you can start to see why so many people move to St. Augustine.
