St. Augustine is celebrating its 450th anniversary this year, and during my recent visit it was hard not to get swept up in the city’s rich history, from its early days of Spanish explorers and Indians to its key role as a protest site during the civil rights movement in the 1960s.

The journey through history begins along Highway A1A north of the city, where a wooden observation deck marks the spot where Spanish explorer Ponce de Leon came ashore on April 2, 1513. Along the highway, mangroves and multimillion-dollar mansions mix with shabby-chic bungalows and protected lands.
