St. Augustine & Ponte Vedra Beach

Culture or adventure? You can discover both in St. Augustine and Ponte Vedra Beach. Experience attractions where historic sites and modern-day storytelling bring the Old City to life. Step back in time by walking brick-lined streets holding authentic pieces of our past, or by visiting forts that kept pirates at bay. Museums display important artifacts and impressive collections of art. For some 21st-century fun, see reptiles at St. Augustine Alligator Farm Zoological Park and one-of-a-kind exhibits at Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Museum.
