Exploring St. Augustine, FL

Visiting St. Augustine, FL has been on my bucket list for quite some time, and I finally got the chance to explore this wonderful city.
I was there for just a weekend, and there's so much to do and see that I'm already planning to return. Below, some highlights of the trip:

St George St,  a pedestrian only street full of restaurants, shops, art galleries and tourist attractions.

The Oldest Wooden School House; such a charming look into the past.

Lunch at Columbia; amazing Spanish food. I had gambas al ajillo and tortilla espanola.

If St. Augustine is delightful during the daytime, at night is simply magical. I was incredibly lucky and was there during the Nights of Lights, which is a festival were the city puts up the Holiday Lights. The whole town looks like out of a fairy tale.

I've read great reviews of Crucial Coffee, in Charlotte St, and I wanted to check it out. This is probably the cutest coffee shop I've ever been too.

I had to visit the Oldest House, built in the 16th century. It was so interesting to see how people lived back in the day.

It truly was a weekend to remember and if you have to chance to visit, please do. You won't regret it!
