With a history that dates back to 1513, Florida’s Historic Coast continues to attract millions of visitors who enjoy immersing themselves in historic sites, museums and cultural experiences that date back to the founding of the U.S. Many of those sites are right in downtown St. Augustine, rated one of the most walkable cities in the country.
It’s no wonder so many visitors plan their visit around a stay at one of our many Bed & Breakfast Inns dotting the downtown historic area. After all, you can step outside your doorstep and walk along ancient brick-lined streets, one of the oldest in the U.S. Or, you can stroll along the bayfront and step inside a 17th century masonry fort. A walk along King Street leaves you at the doorstep of some of the architectural jewels of the Gilded Age, Henry Flagler’s grand hotels.
In between, there are galleries and shops filled with classic and contemporary art, boutiques with one-of-a-kind crafted jewelry and al fresco restaurants and cafes that will remind you of a once-upon-a-time European village. The best part is, you don’t have to drive to experience all of these wonderful things. You can just walk there. And if it’s the ocean you prefer, we have B&B accommodations on the beach that will put you just steps from the sand and surf.
Of course, one of the best things about staying at a Bed & Breakfast Inn is…the breakfast! Each Inn has its own signature style, but all are simply indulgent, served at bedside or on a balcony, some on a porch overlooking the pool. While you’re having your coffee and making plans for the day’s itinerary, be sure to chat with your hosts. Our knowledgeable Innkeepers are notorious for inside information on what to do, where to eat, and how to get around. With a stay at a B & B, you’re never too far away from where you want to be.
