St. Augustine, Florida made the list of National Geographic Traveler’s World’s Top 20 Places to See. The northeast Florida city, founded in 1565, is one of only four locations in the United States included on the international list. National Geographic Traveler published the list the first week of January 2013. National Geographic’s editors praised the city of St. Augustine for maintaining the genuine “old Florida” culture and charm and preserving its nearly 450-year-old history. Editors specifically recommended the 17th century Castillo de San Marcos, which stands sentry over the pristine Bay front, and the Lightner Museum built by Henry Flagler in 1887 in the Spanish Renaissance style. Flagler College (the former Hotel Ponce de Leon, also built by Henry Flagler), which Princeton Review listed among the country’s most beautiful college campuses, was highlighted along with the pedestrian friendly Spanish colonial St. George Street and the St. Augustine Lighthouse, Florida’s first lighthouse.
At Journey’s End Bed and Breakfast in the famous historic district of Saint Augustine’s downtown neighborhood is a quiet street away from traffic and noise but just steps away from all that the Oldest City in America has to offer. There are many fine restaurants and quaint shops within walking distance and the beautiful Atlantic Ocean beaches and the St. Augustine Lighthouse nearby. Innkeepers, John Gallagher and Tim Millbern are known for their welcoming personalities and the friendly, relaxed atmosphere they have created at their Inn. You may arrive as a guest, but leave as friends.
