TAKE A WALK THROUGH HISTORY IN ST. AUGUSTINE B Y J O E M OT H E R A L St. Augustine has the beaches, the boating and the fishing, as most coastal towns in the State of Florida do, but what distinguishes this place from all the rest is its rich history. Founded more than 450 years ago, St. Augustine was the first city in the New World—it wasn’t the United States yet. A walking tour of the town takes about two hours and it will be time well spent. As you stroll, you will be rewarded with a journey through time interspersed with modern-day attractions.
