NEW Attractions in the Oldest City

Over the next few days we will feature the Oldest City’s newest attractions – from wild & weird to dining and shopping.

Adrenaline Alligator Adventures: For the ultimate adrenaline rush, go hands-on with nuisance alligators – in the wild! Spend the day with a licensed alligator trapper and go along on a mission to subdue and remove nuisance ‘gators – each of which must be more than four feet in length. The ‘gator hunt may take you to a deep swamp or the fairway of a famous golf course – each day offers new challenges. The adventures are priced at $45 per person for the “ride-along” featuring a scout for alligators and observing the live capture of these prehistoric predators. Or choose the Full Gator Hunt priced at $145 per person and get right in the middle of the action and assist in the snaring, subduing and taping the big gator’s deadly jaws firmly shut!

City Walks Guided Tours: Known for their popular pub crawl and their history, murder and mayhem tours, City Walks now offers two new tours with far less sinister themes – food and shopping! The Savory Faire tour is a two-and-a-half hour walking tour exploring the historical and cultural influences on the tastes of St. Augustine. From tapas to desserts, participants journey from the First Thanksgiving (Sept. 8, 1565) to the present-day culinary offerings of the Oldest City. Lots of tasting adventures along the way – plus, each participant receives a special heritage recipe gift. Shop St. Augustine is a three-hour tour that leads to the most unique and off-the-beaten-path shops in the city. The tour is accompanied by a cart that will hold and deliver your shopping treasures to your inn or vehicle.
