Bed and Breakfasts in St. Augestine
St. Augustine, the oldest European city in America, has lost nothing of its charms over the years. Tree-lined streets keep the downtown cooler and the area is excellent walking and paid tours. The city closed a street and reopened it as a walking area for shops, restaurants and bars. From beautiful jewelry to ice cream cones, this walking mall offers it all. There’s tour mobiles and horse-drawn carriages to make your trip special and memorable. There are numerous popular Bed and Breakfasts in St. Augustine. These destinations offer a range of unique downtown accommodations. All area bed and breakfasts are within minutes of St. Augustine beach and Cresent beach, both covered in natural white sand. The famous Bridge of Lions connects the ancient town with the beach areas. More than 20 B&Bs offer rooms downtown in walking distance to historic sites, museums and shopping.
