Founded in 1565, St. Augustine is the nation’s oldest city. It’s also one of the most charming.
The Old St. Augustine Village contains over 400 years of history in one city block, including historic homes, courtyards, gardens, and archeological sites. Be sure to visit the Old House Museum Complex, an attraction that includes 2 museums as well as the oldest house in Florida.
While you’re walking the historic paths, follow in the steps of the Spanish explorers who sought the elusive “Fountain of Youth.” Browse actual artifacts of the Timucuan Indians, and walk through the first Spanish colony.
While you take a break, head over to Tallahassee and catch the high wire acts of Florida State University’s circus school.
On top of all of that, be sure to check out St. Augustine Pirate and Treasure Museum and immerse your students into the Golden Age of Piracy.
Here, a narrated tour and included scavenger hunt will show students rare and authentic Pirate artifacts from the days of Sir Francis Drake, Robert Searles, and other famous buccaneers. Use all of their senses with this interactive, hands on, high tech experience.
