Everyone knows that there’s plenty of history in St. Augustine, the nation’s oldest city. But there are enough other charms — from an amphitheater to haunted tours and a uniquely Florida zoo — to fill a list from A to Z.
Amphitheater: On State Road A1A next to Anastasia State Park and Recreation Area, the St. Augustine Amphitheatre accommodates crowds of 3,000-plus for A-list musical acts that have included Wilco, Mumford & Sons and Ringo Starr. (staugamp.sjcvenues.com)
Castillo de San Marcos: The Spanish fort built in 1695 is the oldest masonry fort in the continental United States and arguably St. Augustine’s most famous landmark. It’s a popular stop for school field trips, but adults also will enjoy the history as well as the occasional breeze off Matanzas Bay. (nps.gov/casa)
