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.
