Founded in 1565, St. Augustine is affectionately known as "the Oldest City." The Spanish settlement that is now the business center of St. Johns County was founded 42 years before the English colonized Jamestown and 55 years before the Pilgrims landed at Plymouth Rock.
St. Augustine abounds with an astounding array of historic sites and buildings. Take a stroll along historic St. George Street and you drift back to a time when cobblestone streets were the rule of thumb and life was simpler. Each year, more than 40 festivals and other events are staged that bring the ambiance of the Old City to life. Many of these annual events feature re-enactments where participants are dressed in period costumes reflecting the St. Augustine of old.
