From the St. Johns County Visitors & Convention Bureau:

TripAdvisor has once again named St. Augustine to its Top 25 Traveler’s Choice Awards. The newest ranking, determined by TripAdvisor users, placed St. Augustine among the Top 25 U.S. Destinations to Visit. This Traveler’s Choice award joins other recent TripAdvisor awards on St. Augustine’s metaphorical shelf, which includes the Top 25 Beaches to Visit in the U.S. and the Castillo de San Marcos as a Top 25 Landmarks to Visit in the U.S. With this most recent ranking, St. Augustine can now be found in 3 out of 7 of TripAdvisor’s Traveler’s Choice Best of Travel categories.

St. Augustine was one of only three Florida cities to be included in TripAdvisor’s Top 25 Destinations. The city ranked #21 with Miami ranking #14 and Orlando close behind at #18. As a Top 25 Destination, St. Augustine was honored for its romantic setting and deep history.

As Florida’s only town to have a landmark on the TripAdvisor list, St. Augustine’s Castillo de San Marcos ranked as the 23rd Top Landmark to see in the U.S. The Castillo de San Macros is the oldest masonry fort in the U.S. and represents the important role the Spanish founded city has had on U.S. history. Other landmarks on the list include the Golden Gate Bridge, the Lincoln Memorial and the Statue of Liberty.

In January, St. Augustine was ranked #9 in the Top 25 U.S. Beaches, noted for pleasant travel year round. Other Florida beaches making the list include Siesta Key, St. Petersburg, Pensacola, Clearwater, Panama City, Fort Myers, Hollywood and South Beach.

The “Best of ” lists are created based on the quantity and quality of traveler reviews and only 1% of destinations on TripAdvisor are awarded with Traveler’s Choice Awards.

Located midway between Daytona Beach and Jacksonville, Florida’s Historic Coast includes historic St. Augustine, the outstanding golf and seaside elegance of Ponte Vedra and 42 miles of pristine, Atlantic beaches. St. Augustine is the oldest continuously occupied European settlement in the Nation founded in 1565.
