ST. AUGUSTINE, PONTE VEDRA – FLORIDA’S HISTORIC COAST
Florida’s historic coast combines 500 years of history, 42 miles of pristine beaches, world-class resorts, luxurious spas and Florida sunshine into a collection of year-round recreational and social amenities. The nation’s oldest city, St. Augustine, has historic sites and attractions, myriad festivals and events, historical re-enactments and nightly ghost tours in a historic Spanish-inspired setting. Narrow brick streets with charming architecture, carriage rides, winery tours, antiquing and visiting art galleries are popular. Outdoor activities include kayaking through salt marshes, fishing, or shelling and sunning on the secluded beaches while watching for dolphins. In Ponte Vedra Beach, old Spanish haciendas give way to spectacular resorts and award-winning spas at the Five-Diamond Ponte Vedra Inn & Club and the Marriott Sawgrass Golf Resort and Spa, also the setting for the PGA’s TPC Sawgrass, home of THE PLAYERS Championship Tournament each spring. Nearby, the World Golf Hall of Fame houses interactive displays, historic artifacts, an IMAX Theater, the Spa Lattera and two championship courses.
