St. Augustine, Florida - Part 1

We did lots of neat things while on vacation in Florida. One interesting place that we visited was St. Augustine. It's the oldest port settlement in the continental United States, founded in September 1565 by the Spanish. It's older than Jamestown, which was established by the English in May 1607.

I'm sure you will enjoy this series as much as I enjoyed choosing the photos for it. All photos can be viewed larger by clicking on them.

Touring St. Augustine

One way to tour St. Augustine is
by horse and carriage.
