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 ...

Conditions were a little boisterous with some decent swell. With 270nm ahead of us there was ample time for me to begin learning the rules of the road and become acquainted with the movement of a catamaran in open seas. ...

We had had a few beers before getting there and now drinking cocktails with our dinner caused our party to start getting very loud. Kathy and Dawn had the rest of us in fits of laughter and slowly we watched the ...

We had a lovely stay at the Wingate in St. Augustine. We'd had a long day of riding on the bus and then tours around St. Augustine. It was wonderful to get to the hotel and relax in such comfort!

Historical Traveler Reviews Wingate by Wyndham St Augustine Saint Augustine
It was 10PM and we pulled off of I-95 and had about 5 hotels to choose from. This one said it was "new" so we stayed there. For two queens and a pull out we ended up paying $125 (tax, tag, title, etc) (which included $10 extra for roll out). I offered my AAA card, but was told I was getting the $105 grand opening special (never mind the tax, etc. and the roll out bed).
At 1:00 AM the fire alarm went off but there was no fire.
At 2:00 AM the fire alarm went off AGAIN but there was no fire.
The breakfast was self-service but wonderful. Eggs, bacon, waffles, juice, pastries, yogart, coffee, muffins, etc. etc. etc.
It was a little over-priced but very clean and we felt safe there and what can I say, we had no reservations.
The lobby was very nice.
We were told it was 4 months old.
There was a computer room with free printer that was nice.
The staff was friendly and I would stay there again if I could get it for less money.
This hotel is really nice. We booked a king-size bed room and it overlooked the outside swimming pool (which was sorta on the small side) and large whirlpool (very nice!). The hotel room was spacious, nicely decorated, and very clean. The complimentary breakfast in the morning had a wide variety of foods to choose from, although one of the waffle makers turned a waffle into a goopy mess, but the second turned out fine. The only real negative comment I have is about the staff... they aren't very polite. We had to request a few towels when we went swimming, and the guy at the desk almost acted like it was an inconvenience, so that was kinda weird. They didn't seem very warm or welcoming, but we enjoyed our stay nonetheless. I recommend this hotel!
Très bien, l'endroit était bien, la chambre était grande, petit déjeuner traditionnel, la file était longue pour le grille-pain. J'ai eu une chambre avec un jacuzzi, il était super bien. Le plus grand soucis était que le lit était à 6 mètres du mur et vu que l'écran télé était petit, c'était un peu difficile de voir.
sehr schön, gute Lage, großes Zimmer, das übliche kontinentale Frühstück, lange Schlange vor den Toastern. Ich hatte das Zimmer mit dem Whirlpool: sehr schön. Das größte Problem war, dass der ohnehin ziemlich kleine Fernseher ungefähr 6 Meter vom Bett entfernt war und man deshalb schlecht fernsehen konnte.
Idromassaggio molto bello
Molto bello, la posizione era buona, la camera grande, la colazione continentale era abbastanza canonica, con una fila abbastanza lunga per il tostapane. Mi hanno dato la camera con l'idromassaggio, molto bella. Il problema maggiore era che il televisore era a circa sei metri dal letto e, non essendo neanche molto grande, guardare la televisione era difficile.
Nice hot tub
very nice, location was good, room big, conintental breakfast was typical, line was long for the toasters. i got the room with the hot tub, it was a nice one. biggest problem was that the bed was about 20 ft from the bed and the tv wasnt that big to begin with so it was hard to watch.
Wir hatten uns die Hotels in der Gegend angesehen und zu dem Preis war das Wingate erste Klasse. Wir bekamen natürlich einen Rabatt, aber dafür mussten wir für das Babybettchen nichts extra bezahlen. Wir blieben 7 Tage und der Service war hervorragend. Morgens ein vollständiges Frühstück. Außerdem war alles sauber und wurde auch sauber gehalten. Das Hotel ist natürlich neu, deshalb ist alles super. Die Hotelleitung war sehr höflich und hilfsbereit.
We had looked over the hotels in the area, and for the money the Wingate was top. We were of course given the discount, but they through in a crib for the baby at no extra cost. We had a 7 day stay and received excellent service, a full breakfast in the morning and everything was clean and kept that way. The hotel of course is new, so everything is great. The management was very curteous and helpful.
On a étudié les hôtels dans cette région, et le Wingate était top pour le prix. On nous a bien évidemment fait un prix, mais ils nous ont ajouté un berceau pour le bébé sans frais supplémentaires. Nous avons séjourné 7 jours et le service a été parfait, un petit déjeuner complet le matin, tout était propre et restait tel quel. L'hôtel est bien entendu neuf, alors tout est super. La Direction était courtoise et efficace.
Loved the Wingate
We walked into the hotel at midnight without a reservation and got a room at a discount. At $90, it was a bit more than we were planning on spending, but it was definitely worth it. The bathrooms actually have granite in them! The manger was extremely helpful and honest--he was the one who told us that we could go to the Day's Inn if we wanted a cheaper room, but he assured us that we really didn't want to go to the Day's Inn. He let us check out a little late given our late arrival. One caveat, this hotel had only been open 8 days when we stayed there, but I am confident that they will maintain the same standard of service and cleanliness that we experienced. They also have a pretty damn decent free breakfast in the morning.
