When you think of your stereotypical Florida retirement community, St. Augustine may be exactly what you're thinking of.

Or if you're looking to take a break, take a short trip to Jacksonville and check out a Jaguars game (getting tickets shouldn't be too hard!)

Many of St. Augustine's restaurants are heavily influenced by the city's European roots, and because of that, there is a wide variety of excellent international food to be found. Of course, being a coastal Floridian city, you can also expect fresh, local seafood at establishments all over the city.
While many wouldn't think of Florida as a place steeped in culture, St. Augustine is actually the oldest European settlement in the US. Because of this, you may find yourself on a popular tour of the Castillo de San Marcos, or maybe the Mission of Nombre de Dios. The St. Augustine Wild Reserve is a great spot for a glance at tigers, lions, and wolves if you're up for it as well. Overall, we think you'll be surprised about how much cultural richness you'll discover here in St. Augustine.
