Established as a city in 1565 and about 95 mi/150 km north of Orlando, St. Augustine, Florida, is the oldest permanent European settlement in the continental U.S.—it was founded 42 years before the English colonized Jamestown, 45 years before the Spanish established Santa Fe and 55 years before the Pilgrims landed at Plymouth Rock. Its street plan and architectural ambience still reflect its Spanish origins.
Try to get out on the water on one of the scenic cruises of Matanzas Bay. Several craft ply the Intracoastal Waterway and offer lunch and dinner cruises. Stroll the ancient streets of St. Augustine to enjoy shops and restaurants. https://www.oldcity.com.
