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.
... with a three hour drive across Florida to our resort, the Bali Hai in Holmes Beach on Anna Maria Island where we will reside for the next 6 weeks. The temps soared to 24C and rain gave way to heat and humidity quenched by a dip in the pool. On route, we stopped at Cracker Barrel and thought we were going to finally use the last $25 gift cert from Dave but our lunch was slow and was comped so we still have $25 left for another visit. ...

Historical Traveler Reviews BEST WESTERN Bayfront Saint Augustine
We went to this motel mainly because of the reviews here, and it was great. Fab location, walkable to everything, very scenic, very clean, very friendly. For $59 we got a room with a little table at which we could have breakfast overlooking the bay. The only drawback was that the bathroom was very small- making showering a bit awkward, but that's a very small issue, especially considering the price. Also, if you are a late riser, you might find the trolley bells, right outside, a bit annoying - I think they didn't start till about 10:00 am. The coffee was good, served till 11:00 am and the coffee shop next door was fine.
Right on the Bayfront in the historic district, walking distance to almost everything (you'll need to ride a tram to the lighthouse, the beach, and The Alligator Farm). My husband and I have stayed here at least a dozen times for long weekends, and we've always been satisfied.
This older motel is very clean and well-kept. There's a cute pool and a sundeck that looks out over the bay. The furnishings are older but still clean and well-kept. A great little budget motel. Don't miss the diner next door (Mary's) for a delicious and reasonably-priced breakfast.
Location, location, location. It was in a great spot, surrounded by all the neat and nifty shops and restaurants AND this hotel has parking facilities. It's a more casual place with clean and average rooms. I will definitely be visiting the Montery Inn very soon!
Taking a Break
We went there to see the sights of the oldest city in the country. We had a good time. The Monterey Inn is located in the center of everything. Easy to get everywhere and enjoy all the various sites.
Harry's Restuarant has very good shrimp. Wish it was closer to my house.
We went to St. Augustine to celebrate our 19th Wedding Anniversary. It was incredible, the comfortable atmosphere, viewing the historical landmarks and the casual shopping and dining were more than I hoped for. Although it rained everyday my husband and I had a wonderful time and we walked just about everywhere. The Monteray Inn was comfortable, clean and affordable. Thanks St. Augustine for a wonderful Anniversary, I hope to be back next year.
a clean, comfortable hotel in the heart of the historic district. walk to restaurants, shopping and attractions. right on the bay, near the visitors center and bridge of lions. parking is limited but we never had a problem getting a space. if you are playing downtown, stay at the Monterey.
Perfect for the budget traveller
The Monterey Inn is in the perfect location if you're more interested in visiting the Old City than the beach. Horse-drawn carriages, the Castillo de San Marcos, the Bayfront, ghost tours, the Old City and many other attractions are at the doorstep of this hotel. It is very simple-no frills but VERY clean and comfortable. Parking can be tight, though and I had to call several times before I was able to book the room (kept being put on hold for long periods). It would help if their website would list room rates and take reservations. I do plan on staying there on my return trips to St. Augustine.
We stay at the Monterey everytime we visit St. Augustine (every couple of months). The rooms are quiet, clean, well kept, park your car and walk or ride the trams for the rest of your visit. The rooms are inexpensive, the staff is friendly, accomodating, the am coffee is GREAT and free, and the prices are fantastic! If you only want 4 or 5 star service don't go there. Ask them for the "big" rooms, if they're available. Enjoy!
Worth looking into
I've stayed here on business at the Fort and found it simple and quaint - yet adequate for a vacation due to its prime location near the heart of the old town. It's in walking distance to everything but the beach. Friendly staff and clean accomodations. One room I got late at night was less desirable, but most are very nice. Enough privacy and convenience for a budget-conscious couple visiting the area. This is the best hotel I've found in St. Augustine under $60. Note: BYOS (bring your own shampoo).
Monterey Inn, St Augustine, FL
Very clean, not elegant, but very adequate motel accomodation directly next to the Historic District of St.Augustine. Many Rooms have a view of the harbor. "Nights of Lights" in the area (during the tourist season) make it Enchanting! Enjoy St.Augustine at its affordable best!
