7 DAY ITINERARY
FULL JACKSONVILLE ITINERARY »
You’re heading back south, this time all the way to St. Augustine. It’s best to tour the Castillo de San Marcos in the morning, before it gets hot and the crowds arrive. Walk as much of the massive stone fort as your feet allow, but be sure to walk up onto the parapets atop the walls and check out the cannons. Most were captured in various 19th century battles by U.S. forces. The enormous French mortars are very impressive.
After you’ve seen the Castillo, walk St. Georges Street and stop into the various shops. Many of the buildings date to the early 18th century and some have been authentically restored. The Spanish Bakery makes incredible cookies, perfect for nibbling while you walk. Leave the Spanish Quarter and stop by the Cathedral on your way to an early dinner at 95 Cordova inside the Casa Marina Hotel.
