Families can find everything from America’s oldest church to its oldest house to its oldest alligator farm in the lovely coastal city of St. Augustine. This beautiful community dates back to the mid-1500s and is a veritable time capsule of early American history. Families can explore the area’s fantastic open-air historical sights including the imposing Castillo de San Marcos and Fort Matanzas National Monuments and Spanish Quarter Village, or step indoors at the Pena-Peck and Ximenez-Fatio Houses. Plus, no St. Augustine trip is complete without a visit to the fabulous Bridge of Lions or Ponce de Leon’s fabled fountain of youth. Kids and adults alike cannot get enough of St. Augustine’s charm.
