History

St. Augustine & Ponte Vedra Beach

More than 450 years separate its past from its present, but nowhere is history more celebrated than in St. Augustine, the oldest continuously occupied European settlement in North America. From the coquina walls of its forts and city gates to its brick-lined streets and lush, green park at the Fountain of Youth, St. Augustine’s storied collection of historic sites, museums and homes pay tribute to all who influenced it.
