Editor Picks: Beachfront hotels in St. Augustine

by Alexander Castro  |  Published November 2, 2018

The city of St. Augustine has a long history, hence its nicknames Ancient City” and “Old City.” It’s one of the oldest European settlements in the United States, founded a good fifty-plus years before the English pilgrims’ arrival. Established by the then conquest-loving Spaniards, St. Augustine’s namesake is the Catholic saint and philosopher. It maintains much of that Spanish influence in its storied buildings, including cathedrals and shrines.

The history and architecture of the city are obviously major attractions, but this Floridian metro’s location on the sunny Atlantic coast doesn’t hurt tourism either. Looking to join the throngs of beachgoers? We’ve picked two oceanfront hotels and an equally inviting riverfront option for you to check out.
