The nation’s oldest city has always been well-liked by tourists who visit all year long to experience its rich history. St. Augustine is a top destination for vacationers who enjoy the area’s prime location on the Atlantic coast, magnificent beaches, championship golf courses and numerous cultural, recreational and entertainment offerings.

While St. Augustine is a great place to vacation, it is a perfect place to call home. With excellent schools and a wonderful array of home choices, the area has become one of the most popular places to live in Northeast Florida. Ask any local. St. Augustine is a gem.


The Oldest City is home to the Castillo de San Marcos National Monument, the oldest masonry fort in the United States and the only standing 17th century military construction. There are many attractions in St. Augustine ranging from the Fountain of Youth to the St. Augustine Alligator Farm. The Bridge of Lions is a terrific place to see sailboats on the Mantanzas River and Anastasia State Park provides views of Florida’s native wildlife such as alligators, pink spoonbill birds and dolphins. Some of the area’s best concerts are performed at the St. Augustine Amphitheatre.

St. Augustine garnered national attention in 2015 with the community’s 450th anniversary celebration. Additionally, the city has ranked No. 4 on the Top 100 Best Small Towns list, and in the Top 10 on lists published by U.S. News and World Report, Forbes magazine and Coastal Living.

Homebuyers are drawn to St. Augustine’s prime location on the Atlantic coastline, its stunning natural beauty, miles of pristine beaches, epic golf, cultural and recreational offerings for parents and children alike.
