St. Augustine, Florida

Visual Individual

I’ve been traveling the past few weeks and for once it’s not for work. I explored the city of St. Augustine with my boyfriend Ryan. St. Augustine is the oldest continuously occupied European-established settlement in the continental United States and it was founded in 1565. That’s really old you guys.

First stop was The St. Augustine Lighthouse. The current lighthouse stands at the north end of Anastasia Island and was built in 1874; it is the most recent of a number of towers built in the area. It’s 165ft high and has 219 steps to get to the top. We both hate heights but it was a sight that you really couldn’t pass up seeing so we went for it.

Castillo De San Marcos was next. It’s the oldest masonry fort in the continental United States started in 1672 by the Spanish to protect St. Augustine from the encroaching British colonies.
