Travel to St. Augustine, Florida – Episode 302

categories: USA Travel


The Amateur Traveler talks to Alan from Jacksonville about St. Augustine Florida which is the oldest continually inhabited European settlement in what is now the United States.

St. Augustine was founded in 1565 and is 42 years older than Jamestown and 55 years older than Plymouth.

It is a curious little town. Obviously being so old there’s layers and layers of history built upon each other. You get a little bit of everything by visiting St. Augustine. It’s a really interesting colonial Spanish mixed with 1920s boomtown Northern playground mixed with Southern hospitality.

I subscribe to the podcasts but would like to download some old shows to listen to as we are traveling. I am unable to figure out how to do this. I hope you can tell me what to do!



Judy, You can either look up episodes by destinations or just go backwards through the podcast link from the top page. When you get to a specific episode there is a “download” link on the page. Just right click on that link sand save the file (control click if you are on a Mac).
