Definitely worth your first stop when visiting St. Augustine. They have some great displays, artifacts and other information about the oldest city in the US. Must visit the shop on your way out. Very friendly staff there to help with your souvenir shopping needs.

Great place to begin your St Augustine vacation, folks are very helpful and have great info, maps & useful tips. If time permits a trolly tour begins to get you up to speed (scratches the surface) on the 450+ years of history. Profoundly interesting!
