St. Augustine Rated Top 10 Best Places to Live

I'm so excited, and I just can't hide it. Yes, I already knew that St. Augustine is one of the best places to live, but it is so nice to hear others verify it. With the Atlantic Ocean, the Intracoastal and the St. Johns River we have so many water choices. And our nation's oldest city has to be one of the most charming places ever. I feel like I am on vacation every day here. There is always stuff happening. I try to keep my website updated under Calendar of Events with all the happenings.

The Schooner FreedomWe are a small town, with so much culture (art, music and dance) and great restaurants with fresh seafood. The recreational activities are overwhelming: great fishing and boating, jet skiing, kayaking, canoeing, water skiing, sailing, parasailing, wind surfing, the beach, etc. plus parks, golf, tennis, hiking, biking and many attractions (Alligator Farm, The Lighthouse, Ripley's Believe it or Not, Castillo de San Marco & Ft. Matanzas to name just a few), Flagler College with original Tiffany windows, Lightner Museum, grand old churches, historic St. George Street, the list goes on and on. And one of the nation's Scenic Byways, A1A Scenic & Historic Coastal Byway runs along our coast and through St. Augustine and St. Augustine Beach. Enjoy nature throughout the area, in the Guana Tolomato Matanzas National Estuarine Research Reserve and our many parks. Watch endangered Right Whales and sea turtles. Explore the nation's oldest city including oldest school house and house.

People are what really make St. Augustine grand. Yes, every one knows your name (if you want them to).
