About St Augustine, Florida:

Founded in 1565 by the Spanish conquistador Pedro Menéndez de Avilés, St. Augustine is the oldest continuously occupied settlement of European origin in the contiguous United States. Its unique scenery and history set this city apart from any other in the country. This old city has a quaint feel but boasts a big appeal. Visitors can see why when they stroll along the brick-lined streets and delight in the city's European flavor, with centuries-old buildings, horse-drawn carriages, hidden courtyards, and so much more.

Closest airports:

The closest airports are Jacksonville (JAX) and Daytona (DAB) - these are approx. 1 hour from St Augustine. Orlando International Airport (MCO) is approx. 2 hours from St Augustine.
