5 Great Things to Do with the Family in St. Augustine

If you are looking for a vacation in the Sunshine State to satisfy every member of your family no matter what age, St. Augustine has a lot to offer. Here are five things you must do as a family in St. Augustine.
 
The St. Augustine Pirate and Treasure Museum
St. Augustine has faced many challenges in its more than 450 year history. Especially pirates.  The St. Augustine Pirate and Treasure Museum takes guests back some 300 years to the golden age of piracy when some of the most heinous pirates stormed the shores of the city, wreaking havoc in their midst. See a real treasure chest, fire a cannon, tie knots on the bow of a ship and find treasures throughout the museum on a scavenger hunt.  
 
St. Augustine’s Colonial Quarter
For an entertaining exploration of three centuries of history, take the Colonial Experience Living History Tour at the Colonial Quarter. A colonial citizen will take you on a journey where you’ll see a Blacksmith at work making tools. Cover your ears during the musket fire demonstration. Climb the watchtower for a great view of the Castillo and the bay.
 
Sample Local Seafood
St. Augustine Seafood Co., adjacent to the Colonial Quarter, is a fast casual option perfect for feeding a busy family.  The restaurant has partnered with local fishermen and markets to provide the highest quality shrimp, fish and oysters direct from the sea to table. And the prices are as reasonable as the fish is fresh!
 
Colonial Oak Music Park
Everyone loves something free. At the Colonial Oak Music Park musicians take the stage during free concerts Thursdays through Sundays. This is the perfect way to end the day. Kids can dance under the boughs of the Centennial Oak, burning off that last bit of energy. Parents can sit back and relax while bands from nearly every genre perform. And treat yourself to a frosty adult beverage featuring locally produced spirits. 
 
Explore St. George Street
Around the corner from the Pirate and Treasure Museum and just steps off the Colonial Quarter is St. George Street. This popular pedestrian friendly street is lined with museums, attractions, shops, restaurants and even a few places to satisfy your sweet tooth. Ice cream, macaroons, gelato, hand crafted chocolates and homemade popsicles anyone?
