Antiquities, historic attractions and delectable cuisine are just a few of the things you'll find on St. George Street, the city's central pedestrian thoroughfare. At the northern end of the street, visitors can explore boutiques like Sunburst Crystal and Tillie's Bath Cottage, as well as historic sites like the Old City Gates and the Oldest Wooden School House. The Castillo de San Marcos National Monument and the St. Augustine Pirate & Treasure Museum are within walking distance; as you travel south, you'll see additional shops and cafes, plus art galleries and the Colonial Quarter.
Visitors in search of Southern charm will appreciate St. George Street. According to past travelers, you'll find unique shops and some of the best ice cream in the area. The area is also a great spot to stop in some shops to pick up souvenirs.
The pedestrian section of St. George Street stretches from Orange Street to Cathedral Place in St. Augustine's historic city center. The area is free to visit, but you'll want to bring your wallet if you want to do more than window shop. Hours vary depending on the boutique and eatery. Parking is limited, but you can park at the visitor center's parking garage, located a few blocks northeast of Orange Street, for $12. Old Town Trolley Tours also offers two stops – Nos. 5 and 8 – alongside St. George Street.
