Sun, Shopping, Fab Food And Forts: Two Days In St. Augustine, Florida
Amazing history. Glorious outdoor adventures. Stunnning architecture. Lively art galleries. And terrific food and drinks.St. Augustine, Florida has been entertaining visitors for half a century, and it shows no signs of slowing down. Here’s a way to spend a great couple of days in the city.
Shop Till You Drop
St. Augustine is a fabulous spot for shoppers. Cool and Collected is a fun vintage and antiques store on San Marco Avenue, between El Castillo San Marcos and the Fountain of Youth. Antoinette’s Bath House is a lovely spot for bath products on King Street, in the heart of downtown. Outside of town off Highway 95 you’ll find the the St. Augustine Premium Outlets. You’’ll also find terrific galleries. When I was there, one of the downtown galleries was featuring works by both Dali and Dr. Seuss, an interesting combination if there ever was one. Butterfield Garage is a wonderful art spot on King Street, just a few blocks west of Colonial St. Augustine. You’ll find marvellous art from a number of local residents. I liked one of the paintings so much I bought it and took it home.
