About this trip

Since being founded by the Spanish in 1565, St. Augustine has been a showcase of history, architecture, and culture. First settled as a Spanish military outpost, St. Augustine's Spanish heritage and culture can still be found throughout the old town. Our four days in St. Augustine begin as we arrive in this treasured, southern city. 


After checking into the hotel, you will have time to enjoy the welcoming storefronts as you are free to roam along St. George Street in Old Town St. Augustine for an afternoon of self-exploration. We will meet for dinner to share stories and seafood along the Intracoastal Waterway. After dinner, you are free to travel down to the Prohibition Kitchen or Tiny Martini Bar for live music, enjoy an evening horse and carriage ride, or retire to your room to get a good night's rest. 

Day two will include a trolley tour of St Augustine's artistic and cultural contributions, and stops at numerous historical sites including Castillo de San Marcos, the Colonial quarter, and Flagler College. We will be sure to leave plenty of time for you to enjoy dinner and an evening at your own pace. 


After breakfast at the hotel, day three will begin with a morning tour of the Fountain of Youth Archaeological park. Considered Florida's oldest attraction, you will have time to explore the various sites at the park. After lunch, together, you will have plenty of time in the afternoon on your own, before we enjoy a live theatre production at Limelight Theatre. Day four will include a stop for lunch, on your own, as we travel back home.

Appreciated how well the trip was scheduled and enjoyed all aspects of the the trip. Only disappointment I had was the hot weather at the canyon which made me forgo the hike to get a better view. Kudos to Mark for all his attention and help.

The trip was exceptional. Matt was on the top of every detail and kept as informed of everything going on. The food was exquisite and in time. The accommodations were very good, room was clean and comfortable. Your name says it all APlus just like the trip was. I will recommend your company to everyone I know and I hope Cresswind travel will keep your company as our travel company.
