St. Augustine, Florida

The last stop on my grand tour of Florida was the historic city of St. Augustine. It is one of the oldest cities in North America, and has a well-preserved late 17th century Spanish fort as well as some wonderful Spanish Revival architecture from the Gilded Age, courtesy of Henry M. Flagler, business partner of John D. Rockefeller.

Parts of the old town feel a bit like a tourist trap, but there is a lot of charm beyond the main drag and outside of holiday season. Alas, this visit was very short, but St. Augustine is definitely a place I will return to again for more inspiration
