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.

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.
TODAY WAS A WONDERFUL DAY !
We love warm ! We love sunshine ! We love water – rivers, lakes, the ocean, streams and even puddles ! We love wide open blue skies ! And we love the wonderful varieties, spicies, colors, shapes and textures of all God's little creatures ( except cockroaches – but, that’s another story).
Today we had it all ! What a wonderful day !

Historical Traveler Reviews Hilton St. Augustine Historic Bayfront Saint Augustine
The Hilton Bayfront, St. Augustine is a superb hotel. The last time we were in St. Augustine we walked by the hotel and decided to go in and take a look. The lobby was lovely, with many wonderful details. The people at the front desk let us take a look at one of the rooms. It was beautiful, so we decided to stay there during one of our next trips to St. Augustine. We stayed at the hotel over the Easter weekend and were extraordinarily impressed with the hotel and the service.
I stayed at this Hilton for 3 days, 2 nights and loved it. The beds are one of the most comfortable ever - tons of down pillows, a down comforter and soft but firm mattress. The rooms are a little on the small side, but I expect that is typical in St. Augustine. I highly recommend the Aviles Restaurant, located in the lobby, for any meal - wonderful!
Everything in place
Here is one of those small moderately priced hotels that performs exactly as it should. Everything that we wanted in a St. Augustine hotel was in place. The rooms were very well appointed, nice bathrooms with free high speed internet access. Breakfast in the lobby restaurant was excellent with a little different twist and, of course, the location right across the street from the water couldn't have been better. This one is a winner!
Great Hotel & Location
This hotel is located in an ideal location. We parked the car & never saw it again. The parking was a little higher than I expected. The staff went well overboard to accommodate us. We had our 3 young children with us & we were very comfortable there. The room was very nice & clean (This is a new hotel). The only complaint was our room was along a back street & at night it was pretty noisy. Also, they had no access to the internet which they should have. Other than that, it was a beautiful Hotel and we will stay there again.
Great 2 night getaway without the kids! Had 2 plush queen beds with a balcony overlooking the bay. Be aware that many of the balconies are shared with 2 or 3 rooms. There are a few private balconies available with king beds and I would probably opt for that next time although we met some great people from Chatanooga on our shared balcony, having wine and listening to the clip-clop of horsedrawn carriages in the evening. Great location to walk to everything, never got our car from valet parking til check-out. A visit to the San Sebastian Winery on King Street (free tour & wine tasting) well worth the walk. Room service breakfast was pricey but excellent. Eggs benedict & Monte Cristo french toast were delicious! The pool area is pretty small but well kept. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. The room was decorated beautifully in rich gold fabrics. There were no drapes to pull, however, only sheers on balcony windows which limits privacy and the morning sun was very bright coming in the room. (not good for those who like to sleep in) Small amount of road noise could be heard, not too disturbing. Only main complaint was at first glance the furniture looks like rich dark wood, but is merely painted plastic which was chipping and peeling in a few spots. Not too impressive for a hotel only opened for 5 months. All in all, we enjoyed our Hilton stay and hope to visit again.
A lovely new hotel directly on the bayfront and close to everything downtown. Rooms were very nice with a extra comfy bed. Enjoyed our bayfront balcony and the whirlpool in the room. Staff was very helpful and pleasant. A definite recommend to anyone staying in the St. Augustine area. Got a terrific AAA rate of $116 per night and was upgraded upon our arrival. Only negative was the $18 per day parking fee but with space at a premium in the historic district, it's understandable but would prefer just add to the room rate.
We drove down from Jacksonville for a 2 day getaway at the new Hilton.
Stayed for 4 nights in April 2005 for pleasure. It has a great location and ambient. A short walk to the historical area, fort, the busy tourist shopping streets, a plenty of nice restaurants. If you do not mind walking a bit more, say 15-20min, you can easily get to Flagler's College and many museums from this hotel on foot. Or, a sightseeing trolley stop is just 1-2 min. walk from the front entrance.
Having seen the hotel being built on our visit to St Augustine last September we were very keen to see the finished build. We were so impressed with the look of the Hilton , it had been built to fit in with the historic surroundings and did not look out of place on the bayfront.
This property just opened Feb. 3,2005. Everything is brand new and beautiful. Our beds had pillow top mattresses and were like a cloud, plus one of the few Queen size beds to be found in the city. By far, the most comfortable hotel bed I've ever slept on. The linens are luxurious and above average-4 pillows per bed, duvets, and plush towels. We were impressed with the special touches, for instance the rounded out shower curtain rod to give you the feeling of more space in the shower. The staff is professional and anxious to please. This hotel has an excellent location for seeing the tourist attractions. Exiting the back of the propery, you are one short block from St. Georges St. and it's just a bit further to either the St. Augustine Train or Trolley. We would definately stay here again, it is very comfortable and well worth the money.
