A “routine dig” has uncovered a wall that is at least 300 years old! Click on the blog title “Exciting Archeological Find…” to read the complete story in today’s St. Augustine Record. And…if you are a lover of history you will love staying at the St. Francis Inn (you knew there would be a plug!!!). The Inn was originally built in 1791 – making it over 219 years old!

You have several options (while staying with us) for visiting the Fountain of Youth:
  • You can walk. The Inn is only 1.6 miles from the Fountain of Youth.
  • You can bike on the complimentary Inn bikes.
  • You can catch the Trolley (we sell Trolley tickets at a discount!) and ride.
  • You can drive and park at the Fountain of Youth.

Remember…Winter Wonderland opens this Friday (Nov. 19) at the St. Augustine Amphitheater. And the Nights of Lights begins this Saturday night (Nov. 20)!!!
