This morning we went to the Fountain of Youth, which is a Spanish dig site. It was home to the first white settlement in America.
1. A musket firing
2. The planetarium (to show how early explorers navigated)
3. A canon firing (it was loud)
4. The Fountain of Youth spring (it tasted sulphuric)
5. A native Indian village (an old Indian burial site)
6. Mission de Numbers (the earliest ...
We had a sleep in and then went out to the Fountain of Youth which is where America was first settled. We went and saw how to work a musket. After that we saw a canon. It was very loud when it was fired. We saw some shelters of some Indians that once lived here.
Today we went on a Segway Tour.
1. Flagler College (the first hotel that had electricity)
2. A cathedral (it had a pipe organ with the most pipes in the world)
3. A popsicle shop (it had home made popsicles that were delicious)
4. A house on fire (it nearly took the chocolate shop!!!)
After lunch went to a animal rescue and rehabilitation park for exotic ...
... stopped and had a homemade popsicle at the Hypo.
Then we went to the St Augustine Wildlife Reserve. It looks after big cats and lions. A lady bought a lynx for a pet but it was too rough and so she kept it in her garage and just threw it some food now and again. So they rescued it and care for it now. We also saw lions, wolves, tigers, black jaguars, white Bengal tigers, a cheetah, some leopards, bobcats and porcupines.
... stop was called The Backyard at Meehan's. To be perfectly honest, by the time we got here, we weren't' listening to the guides stories. In fact, he was drinking with the rest of us and we were making new friends from Florida, New Jersey and Arkansas.
The pub crawl was a fun way to learn a little about the city and meet new people. We may have to try this in another city!

Historical Traveler Reviews Beacher's Lodge Saint Augustine
We return every spring break!
We are a family of five that has been coming to Beachers year after year. Sure the first floor rooms don't have a direct view of the Ocean but the dunes are a wonder in themselves. The beach is lively and the sand the best. Great swimming for the kids because the Ocean does not get extremely deep immediately. We love the location, family friendly and the staff are long time employees and are wonderful. We live in the North and get five months of snow so our "Beachers" vacation is our therapy.
This is one of the best hotels I have ever stayed in.
The room was clean and nicely decorated. It was also well equipped. We stayed in a studio, which is the least expensive/elaborate room and I was still very impressed. The room had a TV with built in VCR, a DVD player, CD player, ministove, minifridge, microwave, coffee pot and toaster. The staff was very kind, friendly and helpful. The hotel has a prvate beach gate, as well as a heated pool.
I look forward to visiting again. I would most definitely recommend this hotel to anyone visiting the St Augustine area.
I had guests coming down for a family reunion and the accomadations were nice but the beach in front of the accomadions is like a highway lots of traffic and the police were in evidence everywhere, but the drunks were too, the hotel is right near the beach ramp, and althe places there serve booze
and the place they sent us to eat should have advertised liquid meals, aren't there any restaurants that are not full of drunks I like a drink but not places noted for their drinks
I would only recommend this lodge if you stayed on the 2nd, 3rd or 4th level rooms. All of those have great views of the ocean. We unfortunately placed on the 1st floor with no view. It still wasn't bad. Nice, easy walk to ocean/beach. The kitchen amenties are nice and can help keep costs down by cooking and eating in.
We had fun
We had a great time. The employees are very helpful and had a friendly attitude, gave great advise on places to eat. We stayed in one of the studio's on 2nd floor. It was a nice room. We really enjoyed the beach and pool. Thanks for a great vacation. St. Augustine is a fun place to go.
Loved the 4th floor view
My wife and I stayed at Beachers Lodge for a nice vacation. It is close to St. Augustine. The view is spectacular during Sunrise and just as beautiful during sunset, which can only be viewed from the 4th floor.
We stayed in a newly renovated unit with a new kitchen and a new extra pull out sofa. The room even had a CD music stereo.
The stay was very affordable and we will definitly return.
Best place ever
we planed a long weekend in florida while visiting in georgia and wound up staying a week. if people would read completley a web page they would see it aint all ocean front veiws. we liked the fact they allowed pets and it made our stay nice cuase we could go to marineland and leave the dogs in the ac comfort of the room. we'll be back next year for sure
We were led to believe from their web that all rooms were ocean front view. Well, they are not and the room they gave us was certainly not. When you opened up the drapes on the sliding door the view is completly blocked by a very large dune. That was bad enough but worse was the beds in the unit we had. No one was able to sleep because they were so uncomfortable. Needless to say, we check out the next morning but did not get any compensation for the bad night. The Beachers Lodge is a condo type and units are rented by the owners through the site. When I was checking out I also heard other lodgers complaining about their rooms. It is ashame, the location is just a little south of St. Augustine Beach and would be a great place, location wise, to visit St. Augustine and enjoy the beautiful beach. I will not go back.
Peace and Quiet
The rooms were nothing to write home about, however, with the beach only steps away, who cares if your bed is turned down with a mint on the pillow each night. The rooms are reasonable priced.It easy access to everything and during the week you practically have the beach to yourself..All in all a good place to stay
