What To Do When It Rains On You?

Lots to do in the Old City even on a rainy day:

  1. Ranked #2 on the What To Do In St. Augustine List on TripAdvisor, the Ximenez-Fatio House is “One of the Best” museums in the city, “Interesting and Informative”, and “Distinctive and Memorable” according to recent reviews.  The museum complex is located only 2 blocks from the St. Francis Inn on Aviles Street. From their website:  “The property includes a ca. 1798 coquina stone House, the region’s only detached Kitchen building, a reconstructed ca. 1802 Wash House and a new Visitor Center with state-of-the-art interactive exhibits and a Museum Store.”
  2. Ranked # 3 on TripAdvisor is Flagler College.  Originally built as a resort hotel for the very rich, this historic campus sits in the heart of town and offers two tours a day.   Enjoy.
  3. Ranked # 6 is the Basilica Cathedral.  “Absolutely beautiful.”  “Awesome”  
  4. Ranked # 7 is the Memorial Presbyterian Church built by Henry Flagler.  Easily accessed by either Red Train or Old Town Trolley (it’s a popular stop for both), also easy walking distance from the heart of downtown.
  5. St. Augustine Pirate Museum   aaaaaarrrrrrrrrrggggghhhhhhhh!
  6. St. George Street shopping!  We provide umbrellas!
  7. The Lightner Museum You’ve got to see the handmade rug with the mean poem about in-laws.  🙂
