The Ultimate Travel Guide to St. Augustine, Florida. On the Water! Known as the Ancient City (Old Town), St. Augustine features centuries-old architecture, iconic cultural sites, and unspoiled beaches.
Most people don’t realize that St. Augustine is the oldest continuously inhabited European settlement in the United States. (It was preceded by Puerto Rican colonies; Pensacola, which was destroyed in 1559; and Fort Caroline in Jacksonville, Florida, destroyed in 1565.) In fact, Ponce de Leon claimed “La Florida” for Spain in 1513, which is decades before the Jamestown colony in Virginia, and long before the Pilgrims arrived at Plymouth Rock in Massachusetts. Over the centuries, many cultures have called the city home, including Native American, Spanish, British, French, and African.
