St. Johns County Welcomes the 2020 Republican National Convention Celebration
Welcome to Florida’s Historic Coast! Discover why even a short visit to St. Augustine, Ponte Vedra and The Beaches will have you wanting to extend your stay to enjoy our 42 miles of pristine beaches.
We know your visit to St. Johns County will be a safe and sensational one. And while you’re here, we’d like to invite you to stay a little longer to truly experience all that the area has to offer. For starters, you’re not far from world-class golf courses. In fact, you can play where the players play at the TPC Sawgrass Stadium Course, home of The Players® Championship (we know the iconic 17th island hole is on your bucket list, so you might as well take a shot).
But, Ponte Vedra Beach is much more than golf. A short drive along the scenic coastline leads you to pristine beaches and natural reserves with acres of forests, trails and estuaries perfect for all sorts of outdoor activities—from fishing and kayaking to hiking and biking. As you explore the area, you’ll be amazed to discover that it appears much as it did when Ponce de Leon first set eyes on it more than 500 years ago.
Of course, history is our thing here. And you’ll get to experience it in downtown St. Augustine, where a stroll along the bayfront can take you back hundreds of years as you come upon the oldest masonry fort in the U.S., the Castillo de San Marcos. A walkable town, the nation’s oldest city boasts brick-lined streets peppered with historic inns, art galleries, quaint shops and restaurants offering the freshest local-caught seafood and farm-to-fork cuisine anywhere. And with Summer Sundays promotions in full swing, you’ll have even more reason to linger a little longer to enjoy it all.
Rest assured, we’ve wasted no time getting ready for your visit, and we look forward to seeing you. We know your stay will be a memorable one. And with so much to see and do, you’ll be planning your next visit soon to experience all of it. We’ll be ready for you. Welcome to Florida’s Historic Coast.
