We spent a few hours wandering through historic St. Augustine on the way home from a Florida road trip. Founded in 1565, it is the oldest continuously occupied European-established settlement in the continental United States. They used to just say it was the oldest city in the United States, which obviously isn't true. Regardless of the terminology, it's pretty old. Especially for America.
While its founders would be proud of the many pubs that line it's streets, I'm certain they never imagined it would be the tourist destination it is today, full of shops selling everything from gummy bears to magic tricks to plastic samurai swords.
Some things have stood the test of time, though, like these walls constructed of coral bricks likely pulled from the nearby ocean. The architecture and street design of St. Augustine is the true treasure of the city. That and maybe the pubs.
