SAINT AUGUSTINE | PONTE VEDRA on Florida's Historic Coast The Nation's oldest city (est. 1565) features history on every street corner, plus fine dining, unique shopping, award-winning inns, historic hotels and authentic Old World ambiance. A part of the Spanish Empire for longer than it has been part of the United States, the city's ancient architecture, narrow streets and beautiful bayfront made it Travel+Leisure's first choice as a place where Americans can feel like they are in Europe without leavnig their homeland. The city features the nation's first National Monument along with 32 buildings and 144-square blocks on the National Register of Historic Places. A full schedule of historical and cultural events, many featuring authentic re-eanactors, provide an entertaining and informative look at the city's nearly 450 years of history. Attractions such as the St. Augustine Lighthouse, Spanish Colonial Quarter, St. Augustine Alligator Farm Zoolocial Park, Ponce de Leon's Fountain of Youth and the World Golf Hall of Fame are popular with the entire faimily. Plus, the city is a popular wedding destination and an ideal and memorable location for romantic getaways. PONTE VEDRA This coastal community north of St. Augustine is known for both world-class golf and internationally-acclaimed spas.
