Rich history, European charm, and pristine beaches welcome you to the sunny shores of St. Augustine, Florida.

St. Augustine is a charming little city tucked away on Florida’s northeast shores, just an hour north of Daytona Beach. It’s best known as “The Nation’s Oldest City,” and is where the famous Spanish explorer Ponce de León came ashore in 1565. Today, you can still feel the presence of America’s earliest European settlers in the cobblestone streets and historical landmarks they left behind.

However, history isn’t all you’ll find in St. Augustine. Head to the city’s Old Quarter and downtown streets for beautiful architecture, boutique shopping, and fantastic eateries. A trip to the beach is also a must, where you can take advantage of sandy beaches, fresh seafood, and ocean cruises, kayaking, and fishing trips.

But before you venture off to the Old City, check out the list below of fantastic airbnbs in St. Augustine to make sure you experience the city in style without break the bank at a pricey beach hotel.
