St Augustine is one of the most amazing cities in the entire country and for those who believe Jamestown or Plymouth Rock to be the oldest – think again! Founded in 1565 by Spanish Explorer Pedro Menendez de Aviles, St Augustine, Florida is the oldest, continuously-occupied European settlement in the continental USA.
One thing that sets St Augustine apart from other old cities is the preservation of its historic area. Remember this little gem is also recognized as one of the “Top Ten Prettiest Towns” and named this distinctly by Forbes Magazine. Take a walk around the downtown district and notice the amazing architectural designs from the Colonial and Victorian Era along with the Spanish Renaissance style of Flagler College and its nearby buildings. Another historically-preserved monument you will find here in the nation’s oldest city is the Castillo de San Marcos. Once you enter in the historic area from the highway, you soon notice its nearly unbelievable presence along the bay. This is not only one of the most picturesque settings in the city; it is actually the oldest standing fort in the entire country.
St Augustine is not only known for its historic significance and visitor-friendly atmosphere, but it has lately been pinpointed as a popular wedding destination. Why would you choose St Augustine for a place to spend one of the most memorable days in your life? Read on…
The city has multiple venues for this spectacular day; including its historic hotels, old houses, restaurants, historic churches, and of course the beautiful St Augustine Beach – given the right time of year of course.
One of the most recent popular choices for smaller parties is St Augustine’s Bed and Breakfast Inns mainly for three specifics – their combination of simplicity mixed with charm, the affordability of both the arrangements and a honeymoon all in one location, and of course the romantic feeling of staying right in the heart of the historic district just steps away from it all.
Here at Agustin the staff takes pride in helping brides and grooms to be choose the package that specifically suits their needs. Our venue is often chosen for small ceremonies and receptions without all the fuss.
