The Oldest City. The Newest Charms

Brick-lined Streets. Towering Spires. Majestic Oaks and Swaying Palms

A walk through St. Augustine, through the historic campus of Flagler College, is a walk through a tropical paradise in a place where time, it seems, stands still. The oldest continuously occupied settlement of European origin in the United States, St. Augustine was founded by Spanish explorer Don Pedro Menendez de Aviles in September 1565 and today remains a shining jewel in Florida’s tourism economy.

Rich in history and vibrant with contemporary lifestyle, St. Augustine offers a mix of art, music, fine dining, casual eateries, sporting events, and shopping that makes it one of the most popular tourist destinations in the United States. And at Flagler College, you’ll be directly at the heart of this bustling town center—a place where your life fits your style.

And did we mention the beach? With more than 40 miles of natural beaches that will take your breath away, St. Augustine offers an oceanfront refuge like none other. These are the same beaches that stopped Ponce de Leon in his tracks in 1513, the same beaches hotly contested by the British and the Spanish for ages, the same beaches on which the Timucuan Indians once made their home. And the travel time from downtown campus to shore break? Five minutes, tops.
