"Don't Miss out
on these St. Augustine


Stroll Down Aviles Street - Stop #16

Lined with shops, art galleries and outdoor cafes, Aviles Street offers a nice blend of historic and modern things to do in St. Augustine. Dating back to 1573, Aviles is the nation’s oldest public street. The cobblestone street has recently been returned to its original beauty and charm. Renovations by The City of St. Augustine include new street lighting, public art installations and wider, more pedestrian-friendly sidewalks. Aviles Street is definitely the place to be in St. Augustine!


Eat Fried Shrimp at O’Steen’s Restaurant
Free Beach Bus Shuttle or walk from Stop #16

Established in 1965, O’Steen’s Restaurant is a longtime St. Augustine institution and famous foodie destination. Located just east of the Bridge of Lions, O’Steen’s is known for their fried shrimp served with Southern sides and “pink sauce.” Order a six-piece platter all the way up to a 24-piece platter, but don’t order if you’re in a hurry. O’Steen’s usually has a line out the door, is closed on Mondays and only accepts cash.


Feed the Koi Fish at Lightner Museum - Stop #11

But it’s the museum’s courtyard pond that demands the most attention. Filled with large, colorful koi fish, visitors can purchase fish food at one of the vending machines and toss the pellets from the stone bridge.


Ride the Zip Line at the Alligator Farm
Free Beach Bus Shuttle

One of the most thrilling things to do in the “Old City” is the St. Augustine Alligator Farm Zoological Park’s Crocodile Crossing zip line adventure. Visitors can check out the lower, shorter Sepik River Course or the higher, more challenging Nile River Course. Either way, they’ll be maneuvering over 50 obstacles while dangling above live alligators and crocodiles. Remember to call ahead and make reservations.

3:00PM every Saturday. Maximo, a 15 foot crocodile from Australia will be emerging from the water to devour his meal. Quite a spectacular thing to see, one of the many reasons why so many locals buy annual passes to this wonderful zoological park. Springtime in the wild bird rookery along the boardwalk that runs over the alligator swamp is a wonderful place to capture great photographs of nesting and hatching wading birds. More on Alligator Farm.


Dance at Reggae Sunday at the Conch House
